- A Summer of Cricket – SPOILERS
what is the point of having it , it showing it is hitting the wicket and still going Not out ?
With some stuff you may have some doubt however we know it was out and hitting so why not out?
Seems pointless tbhPosted 4 years ago
they are giving them out when they miss and in when hit LBW – WTF is the point of RDS i not to make the correct decision?theotherjonvSubscriber
Missed most of yesterday due to work. Seems like the DRS system went even flakier yesterday, but is it really the DRS or the people operating it.
Khawaja: yes the on field umpire made the final call, but did the off field guy give him strong enough support. According to a mate there was fresh air visible between bat and ball.
The lbw that showed 49.9% hitting: that’s the rub, benefit of the doubt. But does seem odd.
And then another outright bad onfield decision for Broad hitting middle of middle but all the reviews used up.
Well batted Clarke. Nice to see a bit of fight, but as i always say, both sides have to bat once to see if it’s a good score or not. It certainly isn’t a bad one, to be fair, but a lot’s going to rest on whether Clarke and Smith can push on. It’ll be interesting if one or two go quickly, England get tails up and Australia could still not get 400. On the other hand – it’s well set up for the punchy one to get all aggressive and he could if he comes off then we could be looking at them getting 400-odd well before lunch.
Time for Captain Cook to strap on the kit and make plans for a long stay.
Next hour could be critical……Posted 4 years ago
MrSmith, you’re a muppet
And the pugilist Warner isn’t ? 🙁
If the tail fails to wag then 400 looks par for this wicket, the bogans can’t afford to bat for 2 days in a 5 day game that they have to win (we only need to draw) and post a big 500-600 total unless they think they can skittle us out and make us follow on? Strange things happen in test matches though 😕Posted 4 years ago
You think the Pom’s are going to get 5 wickets for 20 runs eh?
Been done before 8)
Unlikely but i still wouldn’t write England off. I think some people are forgetting that England are 2up and just need a draw to retain the ashes. I guess the bogan fans need something to cling to though.Posted 4 years ago
