Some interesting instances when cricket saw drama not in form of great
strokes,deliveries or close finishes but :

1) When Botham's female fan ran *** on the field during an India
England match.

2) When a test match in West Indies was boycotted by spectators because
one of their favourite player, Andy Cummins was not selected.

3) The Qasim Omar action of firing shots at spectators in the 1985
indo-pak Benson Hedges finals at Sydney which cost him his career.

4) Gavaskar's wlking out in that Aussie match.

5) Ian Chappel allowing his bowler to bowl underarm to win a match.

6) Botham danced in a test against India which was heading towards a
boring draw, in order to keep spectators interested.

7) Javed-Lillee , Javed -Kiran More fights in those matches.

Add more.

Cheers,

I don't know about "allowing". He ordered it, didn't he? Certainly was
dramatic. And never forgotten.

Greg Chappell was the captain (and his brother Trevor the bowler).

How about when either Ian Chappel or Allan Border (I forget which) used
his bat on the backside of a streaker during a test in the West Indies?
Cheers!

  I dont think that cost him his career...It was his form (probably),
  his allegations against Imran...

= 5) Ian Chappel allowing his bowler to bowl underarm to win a match.

  That was Greg Chappel asking his brother Trevor to do so.

And, when a bikini  clad girl ran to  the pitch in a Lord's test,
grabbed   the bails  and  stowed them    away (in the  only place
possible).  I think  Dickie Bird was officiating,  and they got a
policewoman to  retrieve  the bails. Bird  said,  "I  didn't know
where to  look" !.  If  I am not wrong  that was an India-England
test, with Srikkanth and  Gavaskar batting.  After the girl left,
Srikkanth rubbed his  bat over the spot  where the girl stood, as
if he was "cleaning up" the disgrace to the hallowed ground !!

There  is another instance  Bird relates,  when he  had to excuse
himself     in    the middle   of     an    exciting  test  match
(Australia-England ?) and head for the dressing room :-). However
he describes these as his most "embarassing" moments !!

Cheers
