Weird that I actually thought any of you lot could bother reading properly after the endless stupid replies I've had every other time I've brought up stupid declarations/declaration chases and bowling overs quicker when you're trying to win (not exactly ****ing rocket science is it).
I'll say this yet again. The result does not justify stupidity. If someone does an Ian Bell special and it goes through the fielder for 4 do people endlessly drone on about how he scored a boundary so it was a good shot? This is the sort of blatant logic failure I'm going on about, yet the sheep mentality perpetuates it because you can't think for yourselves.
Cricket is a numbers game. Do stupid, lazy or bad things and you'll lose out in the long run. The moral is don't do stupid, lazy or bad things. The moral is not to keep doing stupid, lazy or bad things because you got away with it this time. The moral is not to do stupid, lazy or bad things because you did things right and you lost.
