A last ball thriller

Did anyone else watch the Twenty20 match between Auckland and Northern Districts last night? If you thought the end of the Australia vs New Zealand match was tight, you should have watched this game first. Needing 12 to win off the last ball Andre Adams despatched a Graeme Aldridge no-ball for four (in Twenty20 no-balls cost two extra runs). Aldridge had to bowl another ball and Adams smashed that ball for six. 12 runs off the last ball to win. Now there is a finish you won't see too often.

Heard it on Radio Sport. Couldn't believe it - what a great finish. If only the Black Caps could have matched it!

How oh how could you bowl a no-ball on the last ball? Aldridge, what a loser.

Pillock.
As Wiggy Crowe said, we were dancing in Dunedin. And then that arse does what he did.
This could cost the OCA $50K or more

It was a shocker. The no-ball was for height too. A waist high full toss. As Ian Smith said just before it was bowled "all he has to do is make sure he doesn't bowl a no ball".

*gasp* Ian Smith did NOT say that! If it weren't Auckland that won, I might be saying, "BURN HIM AT THE STAKE!"
