  • John Lever The Vaseline Incident, one of the first high-profile manipulation acts of the cricket ball by a bowler During the Chennai Test in 1976-77, the English physio put Vaseline-impregnated gauze into the eyebrows of the bowlers .

As you know, Vishy, like his brother-in-law Sunny, is very short, and even bent in half I would find myself staring right into their eyes! Apart from being a really good player, Vishy is also a very nice man. When he reached his hundred, my actions were totally spontaneous. I < blanked out > .
