JOHNNY’S SHOCKER

Sunday Mail - - SPORT -

FOL­LOW­ING the fine af­ter­noon he had, Pooraka bowler Mathew McCarthy will won­der how much grief he could cop from his team-mates af­ter a bad day.

McCarthy claimed seven wick­ets in the Bulls C2 clash with Woodville Rech­abite last Satur­day, but also had one de­liv­ery stick in his hand which bounced half a dozen times be­fore it reached the bat­ter.

Can you guess whether his team-mates praised him for seven wick­ets or sledged him for the multi-bounce de­liv­ery?

Well, McCarthy’s new nick­name is “John Howard”, in def­er­ence to the shock­ing spell of bowl­ing the for­mer PM de­liv­ered dur­ing an of­fi­cial visit to Pak­istan in 2005.
