Re Q.1.Seems in First Class/ Grade Cricket it was first recorded in a 2 day game in South Africa.
Re Q.2.The above incident raises the AFL Q. Has there ever been an incident in VFL or AFL where a team failed to show up AND forfeited premiership points to their opposition ?
and Q.3. Any player on the team sheet who failed to front for a game in VFL / AFL thus forcing his team to play one short for the full game ?
