    Trouble is he hardly plays at it outside off so they tighten the line and he works it away.Surprised they haven't tried bouncing him as he has been out to hook shot a few times on tour.

    Yeah, true.

    Mitch to take 7 wickets in the first over, 1 a run out off a no ball.

    Edit: Better make that two run outs...two no balls.

    No it wasn't, that's not what the review system was designed for.

    Don't want to give him extra practice. I think they should use the bouncer as the usual shock ball to Trott, don't just pile it on him, he'll duck them every time, but make it rare and he'll be forced into a shot.

    It doesn't have to be that far outside off. He's edged almost everything on a good line around off-stump.

    Easier for Siddle to get it on that line that Hilf though.

    Edit: And if Trott wants to leave everything just outside off all day then I'd let him. Dot balls around off are better than drifting onto middle because he won't play it. That's where patience comes in, and if you consistently bowl straighter because the batsman won't hit anything outside off then you've lost. Would almost guarantee that if you kept your line Trott would start trying to get the ball away on the off eventually.

    Siddle's bowled pretty poorly this morning. One or two good deliveries, but been all over the place really and far, far too wide.

    Siddle, on the other hand, is not a bloke who should be bowling a midde and/or leg-stump line.

    I'm sure it wasn't designed for it, but if the situation calls for it (and, of course, the ball looks out) then i don't see why not?

    Makes a mockery of it.

    Really, it's precisely why it's the worst possible way to implement the technology. Correct decisions shouldn't be a tactical tool for the captains. Better than not implementing it at all, however, so I'll live with it.
