Don't agree with that, tbh. I thought it a suicide single rather than a cheeky single. Trott had little to do other than move a couple of paces to his left, gather and throw in from short cover (which hardly demands a fantastic arm). Foolish run, IMO, and Hughes should have said "no" and sold Watson down the river if he had to.
If Hughes had pulled out a Trott-esque dive I think he would have been safe.
But you just don't have to take those risks, in that game situation.
Also, why is "Twatto" disliked by most? Seems a decent enough guy and one of Australia's most consistent performers over the last 18 months
Also, I don't understand why people keep saying Trott's a wheelie bin and can't field. He's slow, yes, but he's clearly got a good arm. Thus the two run outs in this series - one of them direct and the other pretty much direct.
He's a good catcher too - anyone see the pocket catch? Thats takes genius.
Both batters obviously thought the run was on, Watto called and Hughes went pretty much straight away. They were probably well aware it was to Trott's wrong hand and weren't expecting him to pull off probably the best bit of close-in fielding in the series. Sorry mate but I still reckon the run was there.
As I said, though, you'd think it wasn't necessary but I understand the motivation for taking some quick singles when the team is motoring at > 5 an over.
Anyhow the scoreboard has spoken and I'm delighted they chose to attempt the single. The latest in a series of ridiculous run-outs gifted to us by top order Aussie batsmen at important points in recent Ashes series: Ponting, Ponting, Katich and now Hughes being the batsmen dismissed
I liked that interview by Watson. He came across as honest and straightforward, hardly a "Twatto".
Again, it was only 'on' from the perspective whether there was technically a run there. Already said it was unnecessary in the context of the game.
Todays play will not last long..... been to easy for England
Lovely ball from Bres
