Talk:Slip (cricket)

Report of a 2002 game in which Surrey employed two leg slips against Lancashire Loganberry (Talk) 23:55, 9 July 2005 (UTC)[reply]

eyewitness account[edit]

Not sure the story here, this was in the main article:Stevage 14:41, 9 June 2006 (UTC)[reply]


In fact, Australian captain Steve Waugh, while leading his side to a humiliating destruction of Zimbabwe on Saturday 23 October 1999, employed the use of ALL of his fielders in the slip cordon.

Damien Fleming had bowled impressively in Zimbabwe's collapse, and if I recall correctly only one photographer, Howard Burditt, caught the moment on camera.

This had been on a day when possibly Zimbabwe's record attendance at a cricket match was set, with over 10,000 (estimated) people turning out to see the mighty Australians.

David Mutendera came in as last man, on 98 for 9, and the slip cordon was suddenly packed with green-and-yellow shirts! Fortunately, that was not to be his end, as Mutendera put on a fighting 18 with Andy Blignaut to set Australia a target of 117, which they easily reached for the loss of one wicket.

A blow-up of this photo hangs prominently in the Keg & Maiden, the "home" pub of Zimbabwe cricket, which is now (that there's no cricket) the majestic Harare Sports Club's main attraction.

A scorecard is available from CricInfo.

Yes Australia definitely fielded 9 slips against Zimbabwe for a delivery or two, and it's confirmed in the photo linked above, so I have modified the article to reflect this. I remember reading somewhere that the photo in the article that features nine slips was manufactured for the cover of a book but I can't find a reference for this right now.

According to this blog, it may be New Zealand v Australia, 2nd Test at Eden Park, 1976/77, with Peter Petherick on strike and Ewen Chatfield at the other end.-- ALoan (Talk) 11:09, 5 October 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Notable Slip Fielders[edit]

Is that the best we can do? How about Ian Botham, Colin Cowdrey, David Gower, Clive Lloyd... and many more...--ukexpat 17:54, 7 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]
