1A fielding position on the leg side, level with the middle of the pitch.
- That didn't stop one old chap with his carrier bag from wandering in and plonking himself in a prime position at midwicket, before being ushered off-site by a bemused club official.
- When he stepped out next ball to lift, casually, between long-on and midwicket for a fourth six, finally we sensed that something might be up.
- The arc between midwicket and long-on received maximum attention as bowlers were left gasping, fielders hopeless and spectators expectant.
