One ball remaining

Year: 1966
Venue: Lord's
Teams: England and West Indies

Fast bowler Wes Hall had just struck Basil D'Oliveira an awful blow to the groin. The lower abdomen, in fact.

The batsman collapsed at the crease and it took him a good couple of minutes to recover.

As he took block again, Arlott said, "Yes, D'Oliveira ready to face Hall......one ball remaining."
