Most memorable cricketing moment in your career: James Kapellar vs Lindisfarne. After being caught behind of a beam ball, ‘Jimmy’ marches off the ground through the celebrating Lindisfarne players, hip and shouldering at least two of them. Later during the same match, ‘Jimmy’ is bowling to the number 11 batsman, who slogs him over ‘cow’ for 6. The batsman celebrates by raising his bat to the cheering Lindisfarne team whilst running down the wicket. As he gets to the other end Jimmy kicks the batsman in the shins and the big fella went down.
