Bruised leg of Lamb
South African takes aim at batsman
Having collected a straight drive from Danny Lamb, Dieter Klein throws the ball back at the batsman and hits him on the foot (left) during the Bob Willis Trophy match between Lancashire and
Leicestershire at Worcester’s New Road ground.
Lamb hobbles away (top) as Leicestershire’s South African bowler issues an apology. Contrition fails to prevent a lecturing by umpires Nick Cook and Rob White (above), who award five penalty runs for Klein’s actions.
Alec Swann, the match referee, will decide whether there will be any further punishment.
