#408. Sixty three not out forever.
They should get some tips off Australia if that's the case, they seem to have chosen a 'good ball' twice. If they were using Gabba balls they'd have some reason to complain.
I've personally never been involved in a game where a ball did nothing at all for the whole innings. Although it would be strange if bowlers of that caliber got nothing out of it.

Bit of a faux pas from Nasser just then, "you've got to believe that someone has to stay with Collingwood."
Well yes Nasser, I don't think the rules allow him to bat on his own

Any idea why Bob Willis seems to have been demoted from his commentary position with Sky? I always liked listening to him more than most of the others
As for the Sky Commentators, I think they are all for the most part pretty good, Channel 5 on the other hand is a different matter entirely, I can't stand Mark Nicholas, Simon Hughes is awful as well, and Boycott is indeed very irritating.
Best commentary however in my opinion is on the radio, wish we got Jonathan Agnew on TV.
Willis hasn't commentated on home internationals since Sky got Tests. Much better suited to the highlight rants IMO.
My favourite ever Willis moment was during the MCG Test in 06-07. He was asked on the day 2 or 3 (I can't remember which) highlights whether England could win. He glared right into the camera and very firmly went, "no!" It was awesome.
Warnie will be joining SKY from Lords onwards.
ANd how utterly dire is MacGill on SBS.
Compare him to Nick McArdle hosting on Fox
You don't appreciate how difficult it is to host one of those things until you see a clutz like MacGill try to sound natural while talking to the camera.

Seriously though, have you read from some people who've been coached by him? The insistence that he understands and believes in the virtues of only the forward-defence is quite wrong. Boycott is an excellent understander of the art of batting.
