Tomlinson ‘bowled’

An extraordinary dismissal, the ball after Balcombe’s below. Coles bowled to Tomlinson down the leg side, you can see Tomlinson playing at it and missing. The ball is in the top right of the picture, already past the wicket which is intact and it seemed that moments later Kent appealed for a catch behind. Then they spotted the off bail on the ground. Apparently the ball flicked the leg bail which caused a slightly delayed reaction and the off bail was dislodged. Tomlinson briefly stood his ground, bewildered to be given out.
