Dislocated appeal

An Australian playing in Leicestershire club cricket dislocated his shoulder making a vehement appeal. Julian Saye did win the verdict for Birstall Village in the 2009 senior county league game against Bharat Sports and he took two more wickets after his shoulder, damaged by an old football injury, had righted itself.

According to the website This Is Leicestershire , Saye was on the floor writhing around in pain when the umpire gave the batsman out. "I think the rest of the boys thought I was doing some X-Factor celebrations, apart from my brother who realised it was my shoulder," said Saye. "I was able to walk off and I thought I would have to go to the hospital. But then it just popped back in again. It felt all right, so I decided to give it a try again."
