Cricket Fans Fail To Catch Falling Meteor At Sussex

THAT cricket ball flying through the air at the Sussex v Middlesex rubber is a 4.5 billion-year-old meteor. Says fan Richard Haynes:

“We were quietly supping our pints, both looked up at the same time and saw a black object coming towards us.”

A waiter? Catch it!!

But no waiter. And no catch. The five inch meteor hits the turf. Says one Jan Marszel Marzel:

It landed five yards inside the boundary and split into two pieces. One piece bounced up and hit me in the chest and the other ended up against the boundary board. It came across at quite a speed – if it had hit me full on it could have been very interesting.”

Better had you caught it and then tossed it smartly back at the stumps.
