Here's mine Leonard Baichan on his return from pakistan took on a coaching job in berbice and he spent a few hours with our village club one afternoon . Now I have a brother a year younger than myself and he fancied himself the second comming of Intikhab Alam whom he saw the previous year with the Pakistani team at the Canje welfare centre He refused to join the team but practices with us every afternoon and as Baichan was batting we all took turns bowling to him and no one could get him out. I was then my kid brother turn to bowl and lo and behold the ball most likely hit a crack on the pitch an and knock the off stump A deathly silence pervaded the ground for at this moment we all knew that we will never hear the end of this And so we all ended up in the village bar , Baichan had a couple and left and naturally the topic was still about cricket , some were discussing their exploits on the cricket field etc . He just sat their listening and suddenly blurted out" I clean bowl Baichan , what did any of of you ever done , I bowled a test batsman so the rest of you shet you rass' and with that he left The following week a pickup game was arranged between the married folks and single men and since my brother fame had spread far and wide and I mean within a two mile radius of the village , it went without question that he was selected . My father was at the non striker's end and as he took his Inthikab run up with a crowd of at least 10 watching his every motion, he delivered a classic longhop and I mean that it bounced at least four times . Sunny Cox took a massive swing and missed and was clean bowled . Needless to say that my brother got a standing ovation . As Sunny Cox was walking back to the pavillion , he muttered " de by bowled me wid one kiss me ass long hop and my father a man of wit and a wry sense of humour replied " Sunny dont feel too bad , dat boy planned his delivery , he is a good bowler , last week he clean bowled test batsman Leonard Baichand. He lives in New York now and he was up here for Fathers day and would you know it , as soon as the topic turned to cricket , there he goes again us all of his famous exploit almast four decades later
