Franks on a charge

Paul Franks, batting for England A against Zimbabwe A in a one-dayer at Bulawayo in 1999, gave a no-ball from medium-pacer Guy Whittall the charge and missed. The wicketkeeper took the bails off and claimed a run-out because Franks had advanced so far down the pitch. Though a run had not actually been attempted, the umpire decided to give the unfortunate Franks out.
