    Inconsistent umpiring indeed. That Hughes catch should have been referred. England indeed fortunate to be on top here.

    Meanwhile Fred Flintoff is kicking it up. It is so heartening to see him making the ball jump all the way to the top of the keeper's head. Looks like Lords feels like Perth.

    This series reeks of 2005 in so many ways, I really think England will walk this series as they did in 2005.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Some consistency would be nice.

    Yous have had the better of the umpires throughout the series and that's fine, but when umpires are blantantly not going to be fair with technology with the exact same situation then it's just pathetic.

    That's it.
    But a wrong decision does not detract from the batsman having a chance at scoring some runs. He may be out next ball, he may score 300 the only thing that can be said is that he shouldn't have been out that ball.

    Loving the Aussie whinges here. You guys are going to have to adapt to losing a little bit more than you've been used to in the last couple of decades.

    Deadset, Hughes and Ponting both not out but given out in the first innings, but given out, then Hauritz catches (but may have dropped) Bopara and it's not out, now Strauss clearly drops Hughes and it's out. Katich was out from a no ball. What next?

    And to think I was feeling bad about saying the recently arrived Aussie contingent from Planet Cricket were by and large morons.

    Meanwhile I stand convinced about Hughes being a good prospect but unfortunately not yet there. What the **** was he doing against that ball? Moving laterally in the crease like a tailender?? He reminds me of Saurav Ganguly a lot. An extremely good player on the off side but scratchy against the short stuff.

    Yep, Onions it is. Good call, Strauss. Hope he keeps Freddie on from the other end, though.

    Just curious, but how do you know Ponting "expected" Flintoff to take his word for the claimed catch? My reading of what happened is that Flintoff asked him if he caught it and Ponting said yes. I'm not really sure what else you'd expect him to do.
