”The batsman is Holding, the bowler’s Willey.

The oft-cited quote "The bowler's Holding, the batsman's Willey" supposedly occurred when Michael Holding of the West Indies was bowling to Peter Willey of England in a Test match at The Oval in 1976. Johnston claimed not to have noticed saying anything odd during the match, and that he was only alerted to his gaffe by a letter from "a lady" named "Miss Mainpiece".[12][13] According to Christopher Martin-Jenkins,[14] his Cricinfo biography,[15] and the biography by Johnston's son Barry,[16] Johnston never actually made the remark. Barry Johnston says "It was too good a pun to resist ... but Brian never actually said that he had spoken the words on air." Holding himself has expressed his doubt about the phrase ever being said, pointing out that no recording of it exists. Henry Blofeld and former TMS Producer Peter Baxter said that Johnston did not come up with the phrase and did not say it during commentary.[17]

Not a double entendre but I like the one about the BBC news reader who said "The Pope has issued a condomnation of all methods of birth control"

OK, but Botham still failed to get his leg over the wicket.

Many years ago my late mother once said, in response to a comment about a very aged chap 'who still turns up regularly for a bowls match'  -  'Yes, but I see somebody has to carry his balls for him'.

Years ago when TV shut down for the night around midnight. The last programe was about unidentified flying objects, when it finished David Hamilton came on and said, ''And before UFO I'd like to wish you a peaceful goodnight''.

Another one from years ago--

 

"Horror" film last thing at night about prehistoric man and dinosaurs, in which the only word spoken was "neecha", meaning monster.

When it had finished, the continuity announcer said something like "Goodnight, and don't forget to put the neecha out!".
