He bowled without much luck, but he still managed to imprint his name and action upon one particular gentleman in the crowd. Name the cricketer AND that ‘one particular gentleman’ who recalled the match he was watching some 3 years later. [0.5 x2]
  24. 24. His claim to eternal fame was the catch that dismissed X. The Guardian noted that he was "wearing a blue headband and a double chin", and added that he had dropped so many deliveries and conceded so many byes that his own fielders had resorted to laughter rather than fury.

X, in a curiously frenzied assault, launched into a back-foot smear and he somehow clung onto a thick edge "The ball sank somewhere into his nether regions," reported the Daily Telegraph, "and the gloves clutched desperately, trying to locate it.
