    I've just seen a nice clip of the esteemed Australian captain telling Aleem Dar "that's ****ing weak umpiring, Aleem, that's ****ing weak umpiring"

    Having said which, I've gotta admit, I'm starting to like his post-match interviews, comes across as a far more likeable human (yes!) being.

    Marcusss, you're just sounding like Richard here. Australia dropped a lot of their catches as well, maybe we should just take their innings with a grain of salt as well?
    5-0

    I wasn't really complaining about dropped catches, so on your bike.

    Geez, that's cricket. You can't just keep on moaning about one bad decision and ignore that you didn't exactly bowl great for most of the day after that.

    Dropped catches are the fault of players, that's your fault..Dar getting one wrong is not our fault.
    How hard is that to understand? Really?

    But the point remains you can't just discount two massive innings, and pretend that we didn't bat particularly well, because of one dodgy decision. At the end of the day, we scored 481 and that is a lot of runs.

    Not the point. You said that Australia did meh because Hussey was wrongly not given out. Whereas Murphy's point was that both batting sides did well but we showed better bowling form (in the first innings anyway). My (rather stupid) point was that you seem to think it's OK to bash Australia's innings for giving chances, but not England's.

    Kthxbai.

    Considering it was Prior's first ball he should hang his head in shame as well. Whipping across the line first up FTL
    .
    Yes, but how loose was Trott's shot made to look by a good ball? It jagged back into him, not much he could do about it. Add to that call to make him drive on the off instead of been given freebies off his legs. Didn't look as strong in that area. Was the perfect ball to expose that.

    Didn't think Prior tried to whip it across the line as much as drive down the ground myself.

    Think there's a little bit of revisionism going on after the fact. Both got good balls, didn't see it as 'throwing their wickets away' myself. If they get a similar ball again in the series I'd back the result being the same.

    Didn't say Strauss played a good shot given the circumstances, hence the 'he could have left it'.

    Yeah, true. Was more talking about how he often bangs on about how (some) players are often merely lucky to score big.
