What was the women fielding the ball doing flubbing the ball into the grass (where the dog picked it up)?

Cricket rules are so weird.

To get the joke, you have to have watched as much TV as I did a long, long time ago.

I do remember 77 Sunset Strip. Kinda. I know I watched it. But I do not remember anything about the show. I do not remember Hawaiian Eye at all. I will have to find some episodes to refresh my memory.

It's as if some old-timey folks were playing Calvinball when one day someone made a new rule in the middle of the game that froze all the rules then opened a dictionary to a random word and thus the official game of Cricket was born.

In case it's a genuine question: In order to dismiss the runner, you need to hit the wicket with the ball while the runner is not in safe territory. For a baseball analogy, imagine if you could just throw the ball and if it hits first base, that's as good as having a fielder with the ball standing on first base.

The woman who originally fielded the ball threw it in to the wicketkeeper, and the ideal would be she catches the ball and can follow through in one motion to hit the wicket and get the out. But the throw is off line, and she wouldn't have time to run back towards the wicket, so she just tries to fire the ball at the wicket, which would be good enough. But she missed.

English.  The Scots aren't that great at it, although you'd think something with absolutely no potential for excitement would appeal to dour Presbyterians.
