Artwork: Maha.[/caption] <p></p> <p></p>During a rather tedious Leicestershire-Sussex encounter of the late 1960s, fast bowler John Snow became innovative in a slippery way while trying to liven up the proceedings. <p></p> <p></p>The previous evening, he had purchased a red cricket-ball-shaped soap from a local departmental store. Replacing the real ball with this personal hygiene product, he bowled a bouncer. Batsman Peter Marner hooked it fiercely. As a result, the soap-ball shattered into countless fragments. <p></p> <p></p>&nbsp; <p></p> <p></p>"In the scorebook, the Sussex scorer solemnly noted, Ball exploded. Well, he could also have said that it was a thousand dot balls in one."
