But it was on World One-day XI captain Shaun Pollock that Jones's remarks had the most devastating effect. Research by cricket24x7 has proved beyond any doubt that it was, in fact, Pollock and not Boje who 'got the wicket' of Kumar Sangakkara on Day Four in the second innings of the momentous Test match following which Jones made his comment, a fact readily confirmed by this scorecard and this video clip. The Scoop understands that Pollock suffered a mental breakdown due to confusion over whether Jones was denying him a Test wicket, obliquely referring to him as a terrorist, or, worst of all, making a shamefully cheap jibe at his recent drop in pace by likening his bowling to Boje's slow left-armers.
