The shoulder before wicket
Steve Waugh has set the field for a bouncer. There are men at short leg and leg gully as Glenn McGrath runs in at Adelaide Oval in December 1999. Sachin Tendulkar sees the ball land in the middle of the pitch and ducks side-on, getting really low in front of the stumps and turning his head away from the line of the delivery, as he tries to get under it. The ball does not rise high enough, though, and thuds into Tendulkar's left arm, just below the armpit. McGrath whips around to appeal for lbw and umpire Daryll Harper raises the finger, forever dividing the cricket world on whether that ball would have hit the top of the stumps or not.
