The uprooted middle stump with bails intact!   -  My Cricket Aus Facebook page.

Club cricket often sees some of the most bizarre cricketing moments, and something along same lines happened in the game between between Moonee Valley Cricket Club and Strathmore Heights Cricket Club in Australa.

Moonee Valley batsman Jatinder Singh was clean bowled and his middle stump was uprooted but the bails somehow remained intact.

After some deliberation, Umpire gave his verdict as out.

The whole incident left Moonee Valley skipper Michael Ozbun both surprised and a little curious.

 "We had no idea what the actual ruling on it was, but we all admired it for a few minutes," Ozbun told The Leader.

 

"You probably couldn't do that again if you tried. "We weren't sure if maybe (the stumps) were put it at a slight angle so there was just a little bit of pressure.

"When they were sitting on the stumps, they were in the grooves. It wasn't like the middle of the bails were above the stumps or anything.

"The ball had to have hit at the exact right point that the stump didn't fly up, it went down."

Surely this was the first and the last time that something like this had happened!
