George Bailey vs INDIA (2013)

Football News

The most recent faux pas on our countdown comes courtesy of Australian, George Bailey. Chasing an intimidating 387 for victory, the Aussies were looking to start upping their run-rate.

This was attempted with a tightly run two to the man fielding on the boundary. Brad Haddin pushed himself to the limit to return to the non-striker’s end, at which time, Bailey became a spectator halfway down the track as he returned to the keeper’s end.

Unlike his movie namesake, there was to be no early Christmas miracle in this November tie, as Vinay Kumar received Yuvraj Singh’s throw and launched the ball to MS Dhoni, who clipped away the bails to send the Australian captain packing.

Dismissed for a lowly 4, Bailey received just treatment for his nonchalant running between the wickets. After falling just short of his crease and witnessing Dhoni make a
mess of the stumps, the batsman tried destroying his bat, smashing it into the ground in frustration.
