Its a freaker!!!

4th August 1975
The day Michael Angelow entered cricket history. The second Test between England and Australia at Lord’s was drifting towards stalemate and the hot sun had left the crowd snoozing when Angelow, a ship’s cook, fuelled by five hours in the Tavern, removed his clothes on a bet and headed towards the square. The bemused players stopped and smiled as he athletically hurdled the stumps at the Nursery End before sauntering off to the Mound Stand, where he was arrested. He was subsequently fined £10 by a magistrate’s court ­- the same amount that his bet had earned him. On the BBC’s Test Match Special, the legendary radio commentator John Arlott showed he hadn’t quite grasped what this new phenomenon was called, shouting gleefully, “It’s a freaker.”
