I’ve heard of sleeping policemen but this takes the cake.
Morne van Wyk kept wicket for S.A. against India on Saturday, his performance was shoddy to say the least.
Morne who didn’t attempt a catch off Sehwag early on, missed at least one stumping and according to my newspaper today ‘looked a little soporific’ has admitted that instead of taking a vitamin supplement prior to the match he mistakenly took a sleeping tablet! (link)
He had a good game yesterday though (okay he was dropped twice early on and ran out his captain) in a convincing win against the Irish.
Things are looking rosy for the Proteas at the moment.
