Bloody ol Chappelli

1 February 1981. NZ Vs Aus. Melbourne Cricket Ground. Match 3 of 5 with the series level at 1-1. Final ball. NZ need a 6 to win. Captain Greg Chappell quickly consults the Devil. Greg orders brother Trevor to bowl an underarm ball. Trevor delivers the cowardly roll, and quickly makes his way to the changing room – clasping two one-way tickets to hell for him and his big bro. A dark day for all concerned.

Apparently Trevor later in his career had a breakdown. Oh well.

And yeah, we made this Chappelli t-shirt today. Pretty neat.
