Last season my mate Olly Knight was running into bowl, the batsmen pulled away. Olly, upset with completing his full run not to bowl then ball asked if the batsman was ready when he next got back to the top of his mark. The batsman proceeded to hit the next one 140 metres over midwicket for six. It was one of our own teammates who remarked “I think he was ready Ol”
