The ten best England batting collapses
Friday 15 January 2010
In celebration (or commiseration) of England's first innings batting in Johannesburg, we take a look at the great England batting collapses of yesteryear.
The history of the English game is peppered with moments of madness, when bats have turned into celery sticks and the pavilion door has morphed into a continually-whirring turnstile.
Here we have limited ourselves to ten of the most dramatic collapses.
- 1 Amy Winehouse statue unveiled in Camden
- 2 Lego breaks out of the toy box and heads for the gallery
- 5 A bottle of wine a day is not bad for you and abstaining is worse than drinking, scientist claims
