Former New Zealand cricketer Grant Elliott exhibited a 73-over-old cricket ball for his fans on Twitter. He wrote a hilarious caption on the picture implying that bowling with such old delivery is a nightmare and even motivation from the captain doesn’t help.
Elliott got a reaction from ex-West Indies captain Daren Sammy. Both of them have played for Caribbean Premier League franchise St Lucia Zouks in 2016.

“When the captain hands you the ball in the 73rd over with the score at 320/1 and says ‘Come on mate, your turn. Let’s get that breakthrough. This is your chance to prove yourself’,” Elliott captioned the picture.

Sammy replied to the post and said it may help the bowler to some reverse swing. “Reverse swing,” he responded. But Elliott took a cheeky dig at his pace and wrote, “Not at our pace brother. Face with tears of joy autumn leaves in the wind Maple leaf #zouksforlife.”

The Caribbean cricketer felt there is only one way left and it is faking an injury to avoid bowling with the dead cricket ball. “I would fake a hamstring injury,” Sammy replied.
