Video of the Week: The Worst Over Ever

This is one of my particular favourites, Scott Boswell bowls a 14 ball over, completely lost his radar and I'm not sure he ever bowled another over in top level cricket. Cricinfo actually rated it the sixth worst over ever, and the Observer rather cruelly rated him the 9th biggest choker in the history of sport. This over was bowled in the final of the old C&G Trophy at Lord's, ironically in the semi-final against Lancashire Boswell took the wickets of Mike Atherton, Neil Fairbrother, Andrew Flintoff and Graham Lloyd - 408 international appearances and 19,000 runs between them. That's life I suppose!

This makes me feel better about myself.

I think that's about my standard of bowling personally, just a good job the exposure at my standard is considerably less, i.e. only Hindle and Saunders really know how bad I am!

That's a little unfair, you can at least land it on the cut strip...
