seconded, sh*te beyond sh*te. Cheers Dancing.
You're welcome  ;) :'(

Two players called M.D. Bates in the same match has got to be some sort of record or something surely?

    Record for the worst parent for choosing names?

    Seeing as it could be said to be a state/county match, there's no way to ascertain the possibility of 2 M Bates being unique.

    Jebus Subs, a guy on a cricket forum I frequent has the same pic.

    Anyway, I see Dan Brettig and George Dobbell whinging about chucking. Dobbell even claiming that Lufbru was a better chuck testing place than WA. Jenny Gunn's suspect action suggests it's all the same.

    India A 6/198

    No spinner in the India A side. Just some slow bowlers and there were rule changes yesterday which even approved Day night tests. Now to find the balls to do that, literally.

    What do you think about the new ruling? Ball issues, visibility?

    Dew...
    The visibility issue is not the one we think is the major one.

    Supersport did a short feature on this last year. There are 3 types of balls. One is the regular red leather (natural colour). The other two are pink and orange. In the cameras though, it is all black and white and the orange and pink were not as easy to pick in natural light. Also, ball life is an issue. My main though is, would that lead to a standardisation of balls around the world? Like the white balls are all kookaburras. Dukes and SG would be a sore miss if so.

    Oh, I see. I am familiar with the kookaburra, not the others, will have to brush up on my ball skills. You don't happen to have that Supersport link lying around somewhere.. Guess Google will probably work fine too.

    Trott is out - he stayed back to an off-break from Raina, and is bowled. Which means only one thing.
    :win

    That's to Raina, not Ashwin.

    Will that livestream link you posted show this? Probably won't be viable for mobile - cellular data's been costing me a fortune already.

    Raina and Yuvraj? Next I'll hear you like Gambhir :-X

    This is a tour match, tests start later on and the link will not work unless there's a Sheffield shield match that's not being telecast on fox.

    Kohli said the other day that it is perfectly legitimate of India to prepare raging turners - they got shafted on green tops in England and Australia, and I agree with him.  Home side should have the right to play to their strengths (within reason though.  We still want a game of cricket that lasts at least 4 days).

    Re different coloured balls, I have played with pink balls quite a bit and they are miles better than white imho, which lose their hardness and colour very easily. However, I have also used about 4 different types of pink ball, so there is no consensus on which type to go for.  Kookaburra pink was the best in my view, and seemed to keep its hardness and shape the best.  Great fun to play with though - swings a mile and goes like a rocket off the bat  :)

    And because little things like this interest me, looks like Trotty has changed his kit sponsor.

    Anywho, Ram, who in your view should bat at 6 for India in the first test?  Yuvraj, Raina, Tiwary, A. N. Other?

    Kohli is a whinging twit. Yeah, Cook scored 294 and Clarke a 300 on a greentop. Belly scored any run on a greentop. Somerset outshone India at the Taunton greentop and Swann took nine wickets on an oval greentop.

    Have your turning pitches, but Kohli shouldn't be a flipping fairy about a proper arse flipping.

    Cheers Dances, never played with the pink. Heck, only played with a white ball once (hated it).

    Anyone but Raina or Yuvraj. Both inept sh*tmunchers who've robbed deserving bats like Badrinath their chance. Now, it has to be Tiwari or maybe Badri (no Tamil bias at all) or Rahane if they stick with the ineptitude called Gambhir up top.
