Out for a dove

The Daily Telegraph - - Letters to the editor -

SIR – I saw the Aus­tralian bats­man Paul Reif­fel ac­count for two pi­geons at the Oval in 1993 (Let­ters, Au­gust 2).

One un­for­tu­nate bird was hit close to the bound­ary when a shot sped to the rope for four runs. The sec­ond was hit in mid-flight by a tow­er­ing shot by Reif­fel. The ball knocked the poor bird out of the sky. It fell to the grass and was car­ried to the bound­ary where it too was found to be life­less.

It’s a dan­ger­ous life for any crick­et­lov­ing pi­geon. Philip Paine
