Back in the late 1960's/early 1970's the Australian show The Magic Boomerang was broadcast in the UK.
I'm reasonably certain I watched an episode where the kid with the boomerang was watching a cricket game in spectator seats, his side were losing due to the decisions of a corrupt umpire. I think this was an important game with a large crowd attending.
He got annoyed and took action, throwing his boomerang and dashing out onto the field while all were frozen, he then moved the ball in flight so it went past the batsman and hit the wicket. After that he dashed to his seat at the back of the grandstand and caught the boomerang just in time.
However a colleague says I'm mistaken and the episode was actually from some other show about a kid with a magic stopwatch that also froze time.
It's clear from the suggested answers that my colleague identified 'Bernards Watch' as the stopwatch time freeze series.....however I saw the other one decades earlier so it looks like the idea was copied.
There is, as proposed, a chance that the cricket match was a very minor part of another Magic Boomerang story, I'm going to look through all the episodes to see.
(I know there were a few where he was on holiday and one or two people became aware of his boomerang, so possibly one of those episodes)
