The underarm stinks…

If you haven’t seen that underarm delivery incident in full, I strongly suggest you do. Complete with the background, the atmosphere, the reaction and all.

The captain’s “mistake” in bowling Trevor instead of Lillee for the last over ; the fact that just off the previous delivery Trevor Chappell had got a wicket and yet the captain, his brother did not trust him enough ; the fact that NZ required 6 off the last ball to TIE (not win) the game ; the disgust on Rodney Marsh’ face ; Richie Benaud’s comments at the end of the day’s play et al.

Ever since its the only memory that ever gets invoked whenever you hear the name “Trevor Chappell” and yes, it was a disgraceful thing (not the most tho – nowhere close to a fixed match) to happen on a cricket pitch.
