Winning caption:
To overcome his problem of knocking the stumps, Steve Finn tried bowling around the wicket. Unfortunately, the consequences were even more devastating! (Bharani Ganesan, USA)

Honourable mentions:

Half stumps, coloured marking powder and one robot per team - what will Twenty20 come up with next? (vedprakash, India)

Looking for a greater challenge than bowling to the Kiwis, Steven made use of a cardboard cut-out. (Joe Fiala, South Africa)

"This new lad looks a bit wooden for international cricket, Graeme." (Ross Arnold, UK)

Use of broken glass tubes instead of stumps may reduce Finn's knocking the stumps. (Witty, India)

These Phantom replicas are as good as the original. (Vin, India)
