YouTube link of the week...

Here we bring you some of the best cricket clips the megaweb has to offer in our weekly link archive. We hope you enjoy these clips and greatly welcome the submission of links to videos of a similar nature.

It is sadening, although not entirely surprising, to note that there is, as yet, no video documentation of AMCC exploits available to stream on the world wide web. One hopes, for all our sakes, this remains the case.

Tuesday May 10th 2011
In homage to Charlie Van Oppens wonder catch at Ockham last weekend, we present this example from Chaminda Vaas of Sri Lanka - not quite in the CVO league but a good attempt nonetheless...




Tuesday May 3rd 2011
An interesting encounter between 'England's' Kevin Pietersen and Harbhajan Singh of India, something tells me that they're not exactly the best of friends...




Monday April 25th 2011
I've seen some exceptional appeals in my time, and have probably been guilty of a few ludicrous ones myself, but this effort from New Zealand's eternally studentesque skipper Daniel Vettori is really something else. He moves well for a big man!




Tuesday April 12th 2011
It's the age old question. The match up that has forever fascinated the cricket watching world. The one you've all been waiting for... Yes, that's right, we bring you Shane Warne vs Hugh Jackman!




Wednesday March 16th 2011
So, the new season will shortly be upon us. Bats are being oiled, enormous, strangely smelling bags are being unearthed and their equally suspicious contents reviewed, repaired and revived as necessary - all in anticipation of another glorious Mariners season. I trust your preparations are as thorough as this...




Tuesday April 27th 2010
I don't know about you but for some reason I can't get enough of this catch. I think the memory of this moment will stay with me for a long, long time (bad luck you Aussies). On a nother note, am I weird for wanting to be held aloft like that by Freddie...?




Tuesday April 20th 2010
Now that's a catch. Superb anticipation from this fielder to snag a beauty...




Sunday April 11th 2010
Ever wondered what all that stuff is players talk about in post match interviews?

Tresco's Head!
Banger

Tuesday 11th August 2009
Banger using his head to facilitate a catch aided by the not-always-able Geraint Jones. This has to be one of the most remarkable slip catches ever witnessed.
   



The Ashes?

Thursday 23rd July 2009
The Ashes according to Mitchell and Webb. This surreal sketch shows the all to obvious failings of movie studios attempting to make a film based aorund the greatest sporting contest the world has ever seen...
 
Stop the Pigeon!

 Thursday 16th July 2009
The perils of playing this wonderful game of ours are often underestimated by those unfortunate enough to never have graced the hallowed turf of a cricket field; this clip is proof enough for all the doubters...

Shot, Murali. Shot!

Thursday 16th April 2009
Murali provides us with a text bok example of one of the hardest shots in the book to play. Not a shot you see everyday but effective none the less. Any young cricketers wathing should take particualr note in the flawless technique and the way he keeps his eye on the ball throughout the shot...

Murali in Action...





video link here...
Monday 25th August 2008
An interesting anaylsis of Murali's action and various bewitching deliveries. As for the legality of it, well, I'll leave that up to you but you can't deny he has a certain amount of ability...
 
   



Batting Inspiration...

Wednesday 20th August 2008
Some of Englands finest in this montage of magical batting. The style of Gower, the power of Gooch, the boredom of Boycott... I wonder if his mum really is as good as a bat as he says?
 
Jim Laker takes on the Aussies.

Wednesday 13th August 2008
It's always a pleasure to watch such marvellous bowling but it seems all the more special when it's also putting the aussies to the sword. These are figures that even our own 'Golden Arm' can't yet match...



Fielding Follies!

Sunday 20th July 2008
A great collection of fielding mishaps and mayhem in this little clip. Perhaps not an uncommon site when the Mariners are on a cricket field but these guys are supposed to be professionals! Enjoy...
 
A gentle reminder...

 Tuesday 16th July 2008
In case you were in need of a little refresher, Vincent Price explains the basic perameters of this wonderful game of ours and also gives a few pointers on grammar for the benefit of any American viewers. Sounds so simple when he describes it...

Hick Sticks it to the Aussies!

 Tuesday 1st July 2008
Doing what he never could in an actual test match, Graeme Hick cuts loose against the Aussies in a game of beach cricket. An amazing display none the less - Bonza as they say down there!



The Science behind Reverse Swing!

Tuesday 19th June 2008
A quick guide into the science behind reverse swing. Thoroughly engaging and probably one of the best explanations yet but you can't ehlp but wonder what fiery Fred woul dmake of all this...
 
KP's reverse sweep madness.





video link here...
 
Tuesday 17th June 2008
The man is unique in many ways and with these two reverse sweeps he certainly shows that. Whether you agree with legality of the shot or not, you have to admire the gall of the man!



Super Fred!

Sunday 8th 2008
This is always worth watching, Super Fred produces one of the most memorable overs ever and the fact it's against Australia in the Ashes only makes it all the more special.
 
Show Off!

 June 2nd 2008
Most of us are just greatful when a catch sticks, regardless of how but this just really rubs it in doesn't it? Rather than blind panic, this chap seems to be very clear in his thoughts and bags an excellent catch on the boundary.



Hilarious Bowl Out.





video link here...
 
May 27th 2008
You'd like to think it wouldn't be that hard to hit the stumps without a batsman to contend with but just try telling that the Pakistan team after this feeble effort. Truly comedic though!
 
Bumble, Athers and Botham.





video link here...
    
May 19th 2008
Some more classic moments from the boys over at Sky sports. Bumble is, as ever, on top form and Botham weighs in with a few couple of great lines himself. Keep an eye out for Athers model shots!



Cricketing Capers!

May 13th 2008
As curious as these incidents are any one of them would not be out of place on a cricket pitch graced by the Mariners. In fact many if not all have probably happened in one single game!
 
Boom Boom!

 May 9rd 2008
The man can certainly hit a cricket ball. I guess that was, as they say, "Right out of the screws". Not a bad effort and somewhat reminscent of John Chesterman at Tillington last week...



Streaker vs Roy!

May 3rd 2008
I think the clip says it all really, excellent commentary though!
 
Bad Outs.

 April 24th 2008
If you can ignore the horrid soundtrack, within this clip are some truly astonishing instances of absolute skill, hare-brained stupidity and pure bad luck.

Sometimes it's all too easy to think things aren't going your way and you're never going to get a wicket but these ones really take the cake. It's almost enough to make you cry.

the infamous scenes that ensued when Lillie decided it was okay to use an aluminium bat in a test match.

August 16th 2007
one day it will happen; you'll trun up at the pub feeling reasonably chipper but with no idea you're about to score a swash - and indeed buckling - 170 and then proceed to grab 8 for with the ball. one day...

No taking notes please! I'm not sure Geoff would be finding this funny this at all - poor technique is no laughing matter for the great man! Borat does get a stride in, he could do with bending the front knee a little more

July 29th 2007
if you can put up with the irritating australian children and the slightly shabby picture quality, this clip is a great insight what facing Warner is like. funny i don't remember him serving up many full tosses in the ashes...

July 16th 2007
It would be interesting to see what KP is actually like at golf: stepping down the tee and playing the ball off one foot. You'd imagine he could certainly hit a golf ball a very, very long way...

July 5th 2007
Ahh, look mate. With all the woeful weather we've endured recently I think we're all in need of some cheering up. this never fails to make me smile, or maybe that's just me...

this may look painful but as a Mariner you can be sure of one thing: of all the cricket related injuries you are likely to encounter over the years, this has to be the least likely...

not quite a W Westwood/G Lea scenario but hilarious none-the-less. it's always best to accept the umpires decision as final, regardless of how much you 'hit it'

June 6th 2007
not too sure about the track but one thing is for sure, these are some pretty impressive catches - clearly so good they were forced to omit some AMCC efforts...

a fairly random yet entertaining collection of clips from around the cricketing world, with Bumble muttering the classic line: "do you like the older man?"

a curious coaching session during the Cricket World Cup sees England keeper and professional nutter, Paul Nixon teaching David Gower how to play the reverse sweep!

May 13th 2007
a leeson to us all: play the sweep sparingly as it could well get you into trouble. hilarious scenes ensue as this hapless kiwi batsman deomonstrates...

one of the best sledges of all time from one of the best all-rounders of all time! Freddie giggles like a naughty schoolboy after this altercation with Tino Best of the West Indies.
