Bail stayed on
Owner: D J

A match had taken place at Sanderstead Cricket Club and produced a comical moment rarely seen in the sport

During Worcester Park batsman Rob Hill's innings, the bail balanced on the top of the stump despite being struck

The delivery itself appeared to be inch-perfect, delivered with the right amount of power and precision to deceive the man at the crease

However, according to the Laws of Cricket, the 'wicket is only put down if a bail is COMPLETELY removed from the top of the stumps'

The umpire calmly replaced the bail and informed the fielding side that the batsman was "Not out"
