My word.I don't recall this having happened to Warne very often. Brian Lara was just so special.

Well, at least we aren't choking, we're just bowling plain sh*t.

:lol: So I was watching some T20 the other day (nothing else on and no not this game currently ;) ) and I was impressed with the visuals they have regarding things like the batters strong points and so on. I also loved the wickets lighting up with the faintest touch from the ball. Why, oh why can't One Day and Test cricket have those things... :(

India's best batsman, who bats at THREE, won the game for them. I hope that significance isn't lost on SA.

The 'Strong' and 'Weak' points I also like, but personally I don't like the LED stumps. It makes everything feel... cheap. If I picked up a stump, I'd expect "Made in China" somewhere on it.

Holy mother... :shock:

How many of you have seen a team go from 77 for 6 to 675 for 9?! You read that correctly!

I'm sure by now most of you would have seen or at least heard about this somewhere:



I don't understand why fielders are always jumping back into the field to catch the ball though. According to my knowledge, the rule book states that a fielder has to be in control of the ball when throwing it away, which in this case he certainly was. He should then have been able to just let the ball drop in the field without having to catch it a second time.

I guess that would come at the risk of interpretation. You never know for sure how an umpire would interpret a move like that, so I think going for the second catch was the only sure fire way of securing the dismissal.

All of us at the office are currently on the edge of our seats with the SA vs NZ match... NZ currently 212/4 and need 90 off of 59 balls.
