    All of the above need to be kicked out.
    May want to keep Malik against India though.

    Hafeez can make it to the side on bowling alone imo.

    Most of his career he has been a support bowler, and ever since he has been our main spearhead he has disappointed. Falls under pressure.

    A good result for Australia, provided they can win tomorrow, given that they're more likely to post a competitive total against SL than Pak.

    Either way I think the Lankans will win the whole thing.

    Heh, just noticed that the women's semi-final earlier is between the same teams! Might be a first.

    Probably best to keep CH Gayle and the womenfolk well apart in any case.

    Don't hate on Gul!

    Seriously though, we need a fast bowler and he's better than the other choices we have. I have confidence in him to bowl at the death. He doesn't deliver as much as he used to, but he comes through often enough. Plus, he's shown that he can occasionally contribute with the bat as well.

    We need to introduce new quicks and not rely on Gul who flakes out when we need him. He is mediocre at best, doesn't know how to use the new ball and despite having a good Yorker, continues to bowl short. Gul was never an intelligent bowler, and has actually regressed when most bowlers learn new tricks after playing international cricket for a while.

    According to the rules the bails need to be completely dislodged, but I seem to remember many run-outs/stumpings given when the bail is even partially dislodged. Keeping that in mind I thought that run-out should have been given.
    You talking to IR?

    Would love the actual wording of the laws regarding the bails being dislodged.

    I found it interesting Nasser saying that the bail has to be dislodged but also enough so you know it isn't coming back down into the groove.

    Wtf? I understand his thinking, but considering we know the bails didn't go back into the groove, since it was a run out appeal, it's a weird way of looking at it.

    Yeah that made no sense. In the freak chance that the bails lodge back on, the batsman's not out.

    This is my reference for the rule:

    1. Wicket put down
    (a) The wicket is put down if a bail is completely removed from the top of the stumps, or a stump is struck out of the ground,
    Law 28 (The wicket is down) - Laws - Laws of Cricket - Laws & Spirit - Lord's
