Just found this. Dunno how?? But an interesting snippet from the Windies tour here in 1975/76...some brilliant cricketers amongst that lot

Great get there,Ben.

Will have a better look later,as I’m just waking up,but seeing their arrival on a lousy Adelaide day,to be greeted by The Don,I found fascinating.

Noticed Clive(Lloyd),Lance Gibbs,Dereck Murray and Alvin Kallicharan in interviews.

I think I’d better watch this on a bigger screen,but what was the practice match they were playing,with none other than Dennis(Lillee)pounding down the wicket,sending bouncers over Helmetless batsman,possibly Alvin?

A most Appalling Wicket.

Abandoning that Test and sooner was the only right course of action.

Rodney Hogg spits the dummy...

2 match test series cluttered with controversies. This incident, along with Sarfraz Nawaz appealing for handled ball on Andrew Hilditch (who picked it up and gave it to him to save him from getting it himself), and Alan Hurst mankading Sikander Bahkt in the same test.

Hoggy was doing a bit of Gardening and that sneaky prick Ahbroke Meandad,walked in and whipped the bails off.

After much confusion and a recall by the much more gracious Mushie(Mushtaq Muhammed),the Umpires said Hoggy was out and had to go,so he angrily smashed the stumps,getting roundly bagged by Keith Miller.

I went crook at Keith Miller on Channel 2(aged 11),because I thought Miandad was very underhanded in what he did and should have criticised for causing the scene in the first place,not just Hoggy!

We were on our way to a remarkable Victory in the 2nd Innings,before that f****** pitch was a f****** nightmare.And/or Safraz was with his reverse swing! :roll:
