I know. I remember playing awhile ago we were fielding and the umpire was tidying the wicket removing bits of grass debris off the wicket, I kicked it back on and said it was the batsmen’s responsibility to tidy the wicket. He said I was cheating and kicked it off again. I kicked it back on and he gave me a warning. Probably not I the spirit of the game. But I still think it’s up to the batsmen.

Is eating trebor mints while fielding in order to shine the ball so much that it swings round corners cheating? 

 

Asking for a friend. 

I thought extra strong mints worked better.

I remember another bowler who if the batsmen didn’t ask before he picked the ball up and returned it to a fielder would appeal for handled the ball. The umpire had to give the batsmen out according to the rules. He got loads of wickets like that.

I’ve seen that. It’s fucking embarrassing.

Was due my 30 minutes on the treadmill and thought, brilliant I'll watch the cricket while I do it. Fuck me, felt like two hours later,  Bess and Leach were still serving up shit and I had only done 26 minutes.

First  loss at the gabba since 1988.

Test Cricket.

Is there a better game on earth?

 

As good a match, as good a day, as I've ever seen in my 40+ years following the game.

 

Doesn't matter what Tim Paine said last week.  This transcends sledging.

 

Magnificent.

I'm about to open can No 5.
