    Enough of this soft decision nonsense.

    It was not out in anyone's language (except Michael Clarke's for some reason).

    Roy is a fucking cheat. There is no way you can not know it was grassed.

    Trying to get excited about this 20/20 game
    Bowling quality is just so shit. It's just enabling so so batsmen to look like superstars.

    A little early, but what are viewing options for IPL this year?
    I use the Cricket Australia live app from Singapore, alas, only games played in Australia are available.
    Anyone outside Australia have a suggestion on how to stream? Legally, of course!

    Michael clarke was not the only one, most cricketers i have seen comment on it said it should have been out considering it was sent up as out. As before i wish the umps could send up the decision as 'i got no clue, you make a decision based on what evidence is available'.

    @Lov_Dog i think https://www.cricketgateway.com/ has the digital rights for it. Do note most of the games start late like midnight or worse aussie time and like 10pm for you

    Yeah can't wait, test cricket will always be the pinnacle for me as far as cricket is concerned. Judging by the india test series over there, going to be some nice bowling pitches too which is a good change.

    Agree there. It's ither out or not. If they can't do that, then go back to giving the batsman the benefit of the doubt.

    You can't have bragging rights as a cricket nation until you are the best test nation. Simple as that..

    Yeah couldn't agree more. Just look at lbw decisions, the way the third ump adjudicates those is so different depending on if the on-field ump gives it out or not out. Those are the areas for me that can be frustrating as fan because it causes inconsistent decisions exactly like these two dubious catches we have debated that have had two different outcomes.

    Isn't it refreshing to know that Elise Perry is not a dyke

    why would a female be a 'dyke' because they play sport?

    I'd say higher, but really, of what concern is it to you?
