Something Stupid

Richardson was poised for his first century,; 99* one ball of Dawson’s over to go. No question, Chris Rushworth would play a cautious defensive shot

Except he didn’t. He heaved across the line, missed it, the ball hit his pads and umpire Cook raised his finger. The most stupid, inexplicable shot I have ever seen in a first-class game.

Richardson simply stood there, dumbfounded. Rushworth is an imbecile.

Richardson is apparently the first Durham player ever to be 99* in a Championship match

Not sure that will make him any happier tonight!

I’d love to know what was said in that dressing room. I can’t imagine Rushworth has one mate in there today – it was absolutely inexcusable

It was also very evident that several of our players made an effort to commiserate with/ offer consololation.

No matter who you support you had to feel incredibly sorry for Michael Richardson……..I thought at one stage that Karl might have to lift him from the crease with the fork lift…….he just couldn’t believe what had happened 😕

Just seen the replay of it from behind and it looks even worse than I thought at the time.
