Had the batsman already been warned for leaving his crease?

 

Tough shit if so.

No, and the bowler had no intention of bowling the ball. In fact, when the ball first touched the wickets he was in his ground. Totally out of order.

It's a tough one as he wasn't miles down the pitch as you say, but he was out of his crease and the umpires had no choice but to give it out.

It's obviously incredibly unsporting, but just stay in your fucking crease.

By the time he left it the bowler should have been well into his action. I think they need to look at the rule now.

Batsmen shouldn't be allowed to leave their crease so early. Why couldn't it simply be that if he's left his crease before the ball has left the bowler's hand, any runs gained from that advantage would be removed, similar to umpires calling '1 short' if a batsman didn't touch in the crease properly whilst running between the wickets?

 

As far as whether the Mankad should be legal or not, the ball could be considered 'dead' up until the point it leaves the bowlers hand, making the attempt at a Mankad fairly pointless.

Was only following it in Flashscore, but that seemed very comfortable. Hales with another good score as well.

 

Ot for 99 is a bummer though. Our one day side is looking quite healthy for a change.

This England One Day team is very, very good isn't it?

It's excellent. This has been a great innings today. The ball was doing a bit first up so they were steady and now they are flying!

Finn would add so much to this bowling attack

 

I wouldn't be surprised to see Jordan replaced for the 4th ODI. I think he's a good cricketer, who's excellent as a fielder but think we could do with a bit more control. Broad or Woakes to come in for him
