    Come on England. Not got a wicket for 4 overs, what are you messing about at?

      Brilliant to see England not relenting, not giving the Australians anything. Keep going lads.

      No, that makes no sense. I said missing by an inch - that is less than half the width of a ball. They will overrule if it might be just missing the stumps (even if it's 1mm), but won't overrule if it's hitting the stumps by an inch.
      Scenario 1- Missing by an inch - max margin of error an inch, three possible outcomes. just clips wicket, misses by an inch (no error) or misses by 2 inches. 2 out of 3 not out.

      Scenario 2 - Hitting by an inch - max margin of error an inch, three possible outcomes. hits wickets comfortably, hits by an inch (no error) or just misses. 2 out of 3 out.

      You come across so contrary sometimes!

      I am not sure which system they are using in this World Cup (Hawk-Eye, Eagle Eye or Virtual Eye) but Hawkeye has been proven to be accurate to 3.6 millimeters or 1% of a stump. They have allowed a little extra to ensure umpires are still essential to the game and also to avoid massive controversy over extremely (e.g. less than 1 or 2 mm) tight margins. The umpires call aspect is about as good an application of technology in sport right now. Not sure what you're really complaining about tbh.

      Looks a decent pitch now. Australia will need 270 odd as a minimum for me.
      It's probably nice to be Olympic champion. Like winning Gent-Wevelgem or something.

      Hesgoal has an excellent small river if anyone likes looking at pictures of that sort of thing.

      If you know what I mean.

      Exactly. And in scenario 2, if it's hitting by an inch (2 out of 3 out) and the umpire said not out, it stays as not out despite the technology.

      They've decided to weight it in favour of the batsman, and that's fine. But Bold was claiming that the technology can be trusted when it's missing, but not when it's hitting - that makes no sense.
      Thank you Chris, you're a legend.

      Watching the same. It's bordering on a brook.

      I'm watching via Hindi Star Sports.

      I'm not sure I'd wear 'Fogg' deodorant.
      But more importantly why does every new car advert (of which there are many) use a red car?


      As an aside I do wonder how much Benny Cumberthingy got for less than 2 seconds advertising a new MG?

      I'll mention again, if anyone is sneakily watching at work, the Bet365 site has a live feed (in a small window). I've decided to take the afternoon off, but this'll keep me going. Handy for the in-play odds as well.
