  1. 12.5% of his wickets have come in Asia where he has played 12.1% of his games. 63.7% of his wickets have come in England where he has played 57.3% of his games. Not sure batting first here was the best choice by South Africa.

    Rabada ban

    Surely under this system a player who's already racked up 3 points (the equivalent of 3 occasions of 'verbal abuse') should be careful not to go overboard?

    Rabada ban

    They were there fining him, the same way Rabada would've been punished if he hadn't previously 'come into unnecessary physical contact with another player'.

    Rabada ban

    Why would they need to release a tape when it was fully audible on live TV.

    Rabada ban

    He'd have received the exact same fine and demerit points as he has on 2 occasions recently.

    England T20 Blast Thread

    Warwickshire received quite a bit of backlash from their supporters when they changed to Birmingham in t20 cricket. Saturday evening isn't exactly the best time for a t20 match in England because it'll clash with all the club cricket games. You'll notice most counties will avoid the Saturday evening slot most of the time unless it's a sky game. On a separate note let's hope Luke Fletcher is ok, that blow was horrific.

    First Test - England vs South Africa @Lords, London

    Third umpire appears to need a trip to the opticians after deciding that wasn't a no ball.

    First Test - England vs South Africa @Lords, London

    Yep, definitely nothing to do with Hameed being a walking wicket all season.

    First Test - England vs South Africa @Lords, London

    A team and pundits thinking about the future and series other than the one taking place? Shocking behaviour...

    First Test - England vs South Africa @Lords, London

    Dawsons being picked more to do the role Ashley Giles did for England to be honest and just hold up his end without releasing any of the pressure the pacers are putting on like someone like Rashid would. Did that job in his debut test match in the India series whilst Rashid was going around the park. Future prospects like Crane aren't quite ready yet.

    The ICC Women's World Cup | England & Wales 2017

    On another look you're right. From the outdated kits it appears the photoshoot was done during the KSL last year as it was where the greatest concentration of women's cricketers would be for a pre-tournament photoshoot. All 5 of the cricketers in that photo would have been present but there wouldn't have been any representative from India, Pakistan or Sri Lanka in the tournament to join it.

    The ICC Women's World Cup | England & Wales 2017

    Don't the teams featured just happen to be the ones that gained automatic qualification?

    New DRS rule

    Not sure I agree with this, it's going to result in a lot more reviews wasting a lot more time. If you're not going to just remove umpires call overall then I'd have just left it as it is. Teams know what region the ball has to be to keep their review and should make a judgement based on that, all this is doing is expanding that area.
  14. The MCC are trialling a newly developed dukes white ball in the upcoming MCC v Afghanistan one day game.
  15. Per year that's just over 50% of the BCCIs average expenditure over the last 2 financial years. If anything I think that's pretty low for a board that oversees cricket in 100+ countries and will be running 11 world events across the globe in that period.

    Kohli in tournament finals

    The team has to be declared before the toss...
  17. Haha, I'll take a short break from the forum if you don't mind .
  18. No it wasn't, it was going over by a mile. Even if it was umpires call it still wouldn't have been given out because the onfield umpire didn't think it was out lbw if he didn't hit it.
  19. Incase it wasn't umpires call and the lbw decision was overturned.
  20. Would've been not out as the onfield umpire didn't think it was LBW if there was no bat/glove.

    Quick question regarding Eng team

    Neither of Billings or Bairstow were really opening batsmen at county level but Billings got played in that position because he'd done it in a small amount of games for Kent and in reality being an opener in one day cricket nowadays isn't much different from batting in the middle order. Billings didn't really make a big enough statement when he got his shot at opening and Bairstow has really made a statement nearly every time he's been drafted into the ODI side for the odd game here and there. He's also been opening for Yorkshire this year and smashed 170 odd last month.
  22. The Oval and Edgbaston are fine. Replacing Cardiff with somewhere like Old Trafford would've made more sense though.
  23. No the attendances at Cardiff haven't been great compared to the other grounds but they've only got 3 group games there and an England semi-final which you'd hope would be a sell out. Interested to see the crowd today.
  24. Have you actually watched the tournament? There's 2 games in the tournament not involving any of the teams you list, Australia v New Zealand and South Africa v Sri Lanka. Both of them were basically sell outs.
