As a further unfairness Scotland were penalised one over for slow over rate. Counting the 33 wides and 15 no-balls they actually bowled 58 overs.
For Fantasy Bob, extras are a thing of beauty and much to be treasured by the batting side. In one match a couple of seasons ago, Fantasy Bob was batting 6 and was rudely awoken from his slumbers in the first over as a pacey bowler and a spiteful wicket put paid to the cream of the batting above him. As he strode sleepily yet purposefully to the wicket to face the last ball of the over, the scoreboard read 2 for 4 - not an encouraging sight and those 2 were leg-byes. FB ended up top score in that innings with 25 - but extras got one more. Readers may not be surprised to learn that Carlton lost that match by some way.
But even the greats get it wrong. Everyone has Harmison's 2006 Ashes opening delivery firmly imprinted in their minds. If runs were awarded for how wide it was it could have been a 6. But the longest over in Test cricket was bowled by the great Curtly Ambrose in the final test between Australia and West Indies in Perth in the 1996-97 series - with 9 wides it was a 15 ball over. It took over 12 minutes. Now there's a record.
