It is legal but I'm not the biggest fan of it. I reckon once your body touches beyond the boundary rope then you can't touch the ball anymore without it being a boundary

Re: Cricket: Random Discussion Thread

I'm not sure what I think about ball crossing the line, but restablishing onfield position with both feet should imo be necessary before trying to re-field a parried ball.

Re: Cricket: Random Discussion Thread

I could get "The Hundred" tickets to see potentially Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Kane Williamson, Shaheen Afridi and others for 9 each. Gold section.

Nobody I know wants/is able to go though :/

Re: Cricket: Random Discussion Thread

going to one of the games with someone from work. They're not a huge cricket fan, but like live sports and think 9 is a bargain.

I think that was kind of the point of this wasn't it?

Go to your local cricket club. 0. Sit in the sun/rain and drink beer.

A solid England 1st innings. Great stuff from Pope and some lovely tail wagging from Sam and Wood

Re: Cricket: Random Discussion Thread

**** me I'm still pissed off at Justin Langer. I don't care how many test series he wins as a coach I want him gone with this pro-bias Western Australian/Siddle selection policy he has implemented. We have players of the calibre of Stoinis and Maxwell on the sidelines while players like Ashton Turner and Agar get a game. WTF? If you need 10 overs out of Agar you can easily get that from Maxwell and Stonis plus you get a better return for your batting. **** off Langer I'm done with you and also McDonald isn't going to be much better either

How embarrassing for the England U/19 team to lose to Australia last night. I'd given up on them winning only to see this morning that they had won. Cricket:  Random Discussion Thread

Re: Cricket: Random Discussion Thread

Who would have guessed a batsmen who averages 60 in FCC would do best in test cricket than someone averaging 35.

It was very impressive of NZ to lose the T20 against India today. They had it won twice!

The problem is that de cock doesn't always think with his head and at 3 and 4 you need people who can sometimes access conditions and consolidate and defend instead of smashing it from the first ball.

Re: Cricket: Random Discussion Thread

Test cricket returns tonight as we see England host WI. Expecting to see Broad in the team instead of Wood. England's bowling should be fine but the batting looks a little light on with experience so expecting the WI to make early inroads in their top order. My prediction is England by 130 runs.

Re: Cricket: Random Discussion Thread

England top 4 looks woeful without Root and WI have a strong bowling attack these days. Hoping WI play the left arm spinner Cornwall. There is also rain expected for first two days. Expecting a close and low scoring match.
