2. FOOTBALL offers the world clichés; RUGBY produces facial deformity; HOCKEY provides an acceptable outlet for psychotic violence; CRICKET alone breeds myths... More quotes here.

Ducks

Three ducks in one game Tinkerman Although it looked a never to be repeated feat, the Tinkerman managed to do it again at Captains Day 2007.  Big up to the big man and it could have been 4 had he not declined the offer to bat again..
Three ducks in one game The Smutmeister On Captains 2005, the feat achieved was as follows : run out, not facing, returned as lowest scorer, bowled for a golden, then a golden in his second innings. Hats off to the lad
Duck in both innings Tony Fletcher v. Malvern Chasers 1997
