    That's a 6, right? Because he jumped from behind the line.
    Or something.

    Thought that was six. That is though.

    Anyay per above, I agree with shivfan. No problem with Gayle resting. He's needed for the later rounds and this gives some of the other guys some batting practice.

    Freakish. Considering the opposition, and the lower number of matches, nothing much to look into

    Good effort, but surely it has to be six if he's already stepped outside the field of play, even if he wasn't touching the ground when he knocked it back inside the rope. Can anyone confirm if that ruling was actually correct or not?

    Chris Giffard is furious with the Bravo 'not-a-six' ruling: "Of course that was a 6. What a stupid interpretation of the rules by the umpires. NOw we can have fielders in the stands, and as long as their feet are in the air, they can catch it and throw it back. What a lack of wisdom by the umpires."

    I was reading a discussion on a scarily similar scenario just the other day...possibly in the Guardian's "You're the Umpire" column.

    The key thing is that it's not a six until the ball comes into contact, direct or indirect, with the ground. So, as long as the player is in the air when he touches the ball, it's not a six, regardless of his body's position.

    Technically, this would be open to abuse -- station a fielder a yard or two outside the rope, who could then pat the ball back to someone inside the boundary. In practice though, that just wouldn't work, for pretty obvious reasons.

    I'm really hoping to "catch" a replay of that later.

    So you are going to pick players in test cricket, based on T20 form now?. No way

    All 3 formats have a clear future in the game.
