The Purnell CC bowler who threw a no-ball direct to the boundary to deny an opposing batsmen his maiden hundred has been banned for nine matches this week by the Somerset County League. The sanction is way over the top - it is wrong, wrong, wrong.
A league statement announced that the bowler involved had not been Ronnie Casling as had been reported. This was strange as a Casling bowling analysis was shown online as 3.2-0-31-2, the only broken over in the innings. Yet the league did not name the person they had punished - another oddity. But let that mystery pass.
