Catch The Pigeon

The thrilling T20 contest between Lancashire and Yorkshire last night reminded me of a freak occurrence that happened when these sides met back in 2009.
.
On a beautiful barmy summer evening Jacques Rudolph fielded a ball in the outfield and returned a throw to the stumps only for it to connect with a fleeing pigeon.
.
There was only one winner, and it still baffles me as to why the Sky producers thought it was okay to show a slow motion replay of the birds demise.  The video is not for the squeamish.

Nice! Search for Randy Johnson Dove on You Tube for a similar baseball incident.
