Remember the pea incident that happened during the 2007 Trent Bridge inspection between India and the UK? If not, here’s what happened. Team India pacer Zaheer Khan pointed his cane towards Kevin Pietersen who was standing at the slide, after he noticed some jelly beans being thrown on the stand. In the last few years it has been revealed that the jelly bean is actually lying there on the surface and it was done just to have some “joke” in between.
It should be remembered that 2007 was the last time when India beat England in England in the Test series. Afterward Rahul Dravid-led won this series 1-0 after winning the Nottingham Test.
Former England player Ryan Sidebottom, who is currently in India, playing for the Manipal Tigers in the ongoing League of Legends Cricket, opened up about the whole thing in a chat with NDTV.
“Sometimes you know Test of cricket and cricket can be really tough and tough and sometimes you think, life is too short, you just have to enjoy it with a smile on your face. During the Jellybean incident, India We were on top of that game and they were way ahead of us at the time. We just thought putting Jellybean in that stand, it’s nothing, it’s just a bit of a joke. look and enjoy what you’re doing,” said Sidebottom.
Sidebottom played 22 Tests, 25 ODIs and 18 T20Is for England, scoring 131 points across all game formats. He also has a Test hat-trick to his name, as he achieved the feat against New Zealand in 2008.
When asked about what he considers the biggest peak of his career, the former player said: “Well, winning the T20 World Cup would be one and scoring a Test hat-trick would be another with my family I would also say playing against India at home I probably played the best I did in my trial career and didn’t hit the most players But when you play against people like Sourav GangulyRahul Dravid, MS Dhoniand Sachin Tendulkardon’t get more than that. “
Talking about his favorite memory of playing against India, Sidebottom replied: “Playing against India at Lord must go there, the whole history surrounding the Lords, against arguably the best line-up, no could be better than that.”
While talking about his experience playing League of Legends, the former pacer said: “It was a great experience. The Indian fans were crazy, it was a fun experience and it was a game. It’s tough. People will see that we’re going out there and giving our best in everything at League of Legends. I think the concept is going to grow and it’s going to get bigger and bigger, you look at the players. on the show. League of Legends is awesome.”
