VIDEO: Wisbech captain dismisses Ashes run-out hero Gary Pratt during Cambs fixture
WISBECH Town captain James Williams took three wickets for Cambridgeshire yesterday - including the prize scalp of Ashes run-out hero Gary Pratt.
Pratt became an unlikely hero during the fourth test of the 2005 Ashes series at Trent Bridge. The former Durham batsman came on as a substitute fielder - only to run out Australian captain Ricky Ponting.
But yesterday Pratt was at March Town Cricket Club’s ground, The Avenue, captaining Cumberland against Cambridgeshire in a three-day minor counties clash.
He became one of seamer Williams’ three wickets, when he fell caught for 20.
The Wisbech skipper finished with figures of 3-41 from 12 overs having fell for a duck earlier in the day.
