PJ Hughes lbw b Herath 34 49 4 0 69.38

14.6 84.2 kph, The ball lobs to short leg and he's given not out, they are reviewing it. Not too sure if there was bat but the ball tracker shows that the ball was hitting the leg stump clean, so Hughes has been given out lbw. Bit of confusion as to what they were appealing for, Hughes was forward and there was no evidence of bat or glove so lbw it is 45/2

They were appealing for anything.

Tony Tea

You know appeals are running amok when the batsmen skips down the wicket and get hit by a ball missing leg by 10 feet (approx). Looking at you, Mahela.

Tony Tea

Crooky obviously missed, or chose to ignore, Mahela running down the pitch to the umpire tapping his hands to indicate they were appealing for an edge.

Tony Tea

Cowan: "Hey! How about I sweep a low full toss?" Bunny.

The Don has risen

What is this not our if more than 300 cm down the wicket?

I recall reading that in the laws of the game.

simply get rid of it for LBWs!!

The Sris are appealing with interest as usury!!

M. Patard

He really needs to get some advice from someone who knows how to play spin. This sweeping is out of control.

Almost as out of control as the appealing. At least the Lankans have burnt all their reviews now.

Tony Tea

Idea! A dunking tank in the Coca Poola with the Vodaphone couple in the chair. Who would not want to chuck stuff at the Vodaphone couple? Fun! Fun! Fun!

Tony Tea

Fielding sides should be penalised for appealing for LBW when the batsman has skipped down the wicket.

The Don has risen

tony a batsman can be still out LBW.

The Umpire can take action if he believes an appeals or appeals in general are becoming frivolous

M. Patard

Geez we're gonna miss Hussey.

Tony Tea

Don, yes I know.

Tony Tea

Bamboo fingernails, water boarding, sleep deprivation, Chinese water torture, summer's biggest dress-up party.

The Don has risen

The ultimate penalty if they continue to do it after being warned is 5 penalty runs.

We have only just beaten the Sris 2nd eleven!

M. Patard

Bloody hell Wade, that was pathetic.

Tony Tea

This has been a particularly unattractive and aggravating chase.

m0nty

We are so screwed in India. And the traditionally dusty, crusty, low, slow non-continental pitches of Edgbaston and Cardiff.

m0nty

Speaking of dress ups, when the Nein crew all came out in traditional pink garb yesterday, they still didn't look as fvcken stupid as the BBL uniforms.

Tony Tea

We. Gonna. Get. Spiflicated. And spinflicated.

Tony Tea

There is a reason all these cars keep getting dinged in the Allianz ad - the bloke with the dog.

Must Watch!!!! Top 11 Weirdest Dismissals in Cricket!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jczeBJnzOQU

We are all familiar with the once-yearly discussion you have with kids, foreigners et al, where "it doesn't have to hit your legs to be dismissed LBW."

I must admit I've never seen an example, it's always just been in theory. #6 has Slashin' Shachin getting dismissed LBW while trying to duck a Pidge bouncer. I reckon Hawkeye would have had it clipping the top of middle. *does the "bunny ears" send off*

The last one is worth a look, too. Trying to duck a bean ball. Getting clean bowled by a corker yorker instead. Ha! *does the "bunny ears" send off*

The Don has risen

You are barking mad

The Don has risen

who is going to hawk the Hussy memorabilia now Tawny is no longer with us?

Big Ramifications

"We are so screwed in India."

Speaking of which, m0nty, I've recently read a few attention wh0re, Indian-versions-of-John-Pilger shouting HANG ALL RAPISTS! SUMMARILY CASTRATE ALL RAPISTS WITHOUT TRIAL!

I'm not making this up.

But it's good this oh so modern nation has quickly reached a compromise. Only the rapiest of rapists shall be strung up. Yeah... I can live with that.

Tony Tea

Well, at least the Indians spell better in English than I spell in Hindi.

Big Ramifications

Which begs the question, Tony....

The Don has risen

Indians have an unfair advantage when trying to get a job.

They simply use Sikh

Jesus Christ.

I'll pay that, Don. It's of the "so bad it's funny" variety. I smiled.

Tony Tea

It's so bad I cringed.

The Don has risen

It is Sunday you heathens!

Tony Tea

Subbies taking the piss:

Big Ramifications

Sorry Don, "barking mad" how? Was it gonna go over the stumps?

I'm surprised how quick and big the appeal was. As a fielder, something about a batsman attempting to duck a bouncer would have had me second guessing my judgement.

ppps: I've just noticed all the Shouty people in that picture are fellas. Bloke in the middle looks like Ice T from Law and Order SVU. Bloke on the far right looks like a drunk dude that has just randomly wandered past. "What're we all shouting about here?"

Tony Tea

The appeal was so immediate that they obviously thought it was going to hit the stumps. I certainly thought it was going to hit the stumps. Love to see a DRS verdict.

The Don has risen

The bloke with the dog???? ruf ruf

got to go

Big Ramifications

"As if. Although there was a pitch invasion about 100 years ago during an Ashes Test. And Illingworth took the proms off the field in the 70s. But that's about it.

When we start burning grandstands down Pat will have a point, but not till then.

Let he who is an international cricketer who hasn't burnt down their own Cricket Academy and main grandstand in consecutive days cast the first stone.

And as we all know, he played the loony card at his trial and it worked. He got nutted by Irfan Pathan bouncer in Australia, and he reckons he went off the rails for a bit.

I've seen the footage on Youtube [I can't find it presently] and it's a stomach-churning direct hit to Vermeulen's dome. I'm not surprised he lost his marbles for a period.
