    If your talking about the Clarke review, I don't get where your coming from because the fact is they all went up for it and it looked out, until they showed super slow-mo, so where did they go up for something they didn't think was out. Every test team in the World goes up for close decisions, or when they think it's close, thats why you appeal, then let the umpire make the decision.

    When Hussey is in form, he is like Australia's Laxman.

    100 Partnership. And wow have they had to fight for that one.

    Hussey has been lucky, no doubt, but he's played exceptionally well. Clarke, though - how late is he playing Swann? That's what I've been paying attention to, and probably the reason we're still alive in this test.

    These two MUST hold the line. I don't see anyone else lasting any length against bowling of this calibre on such a pitch.

    lol. It never looked anywhere near out for a second. Anyone with a functioning pair of eyes could see what happened. It was a disgraceful decision by Tony Hill which really illustrates my point, that appeals for phantom edges etc can con dopey umpires.

    Very poor decision as it obviously wasnt out but can understand why they appealed
