At first glance, you might think this is just a dismissal where a simple catch was taken by a fielder standing at gully. What’s funny about that?
The humour comes when one looks at the scoreboard which marks the dismissal as “Lillee c Willey b Dilley”. Surely, that is something that would tickle some of your funny bones.
This incident occurred in December 1979 at Perth, when Australian legend Dennis Lille was caught by Englishman Peter Willey, off the bowling of Graham Dilley.
