    Since when are pull shots straight to a (shortish) square leg 'simple catches'? Sure enough, a good fielder should take 'm most of the times, but it's never really simple....

    Nah that was pretty simple. He literally did not need to move a muscle.

    Just checked the stats. Jimmeh has 11 wickets at 28.90, and in 2nd? Steven Finn with 11 wickets at 31. Very surprised that he's managed to pick up 11, don't think he's bowled particularly well, has certainly been the weakest link in the 4 man attack anyway. Guess he just has that handy knack of picking up wickets.

    Exactly. To lose a challenge for that one with Siddle when it showed that the ball was likely to be hitting must be a bitter pill to swallow. I think more than none of us thought that was out (if he didn't hit it) at first view - I personally thought it was missing leg, but Burgey thought it was out. Well worth a challenge, and harsh to lose the challenge.

    Shot Hilf!

    Good grief look at the pitch map for Finn vs. LH's. All over the place.

    Greig may be biased, but to nowhere near the same extent as Healy. I've heard Greig praise the Aussies on plenty of occasions.

    He was near the umpire and it was hit to him at throat height. The don't come much simpler than that.

    Yeah I think Greig's generally a very good commentator. He doesn't mind the Aussies losing though. He really loves Sri Lanka.

    If England can get past the first 20-30 overs without losing a wicket, they should be on for a big one, especially seeing how the tail end are batting.

    He says some fairly stupid stuff from time to time. Generally OK though.

    Greig's problem is crowing too much when the Aussies are playing badly. When the Aussies are playing well, he's pretty good at analysing their strengths. Plus, this C9 group of commentators need someone like Greig with Healy, Taylor, Lawry et. al. around. Warne's been a refreshing change.
