    Bloody hell

    Spinners should not bowl no-balls. Awful shot from Cook as well!

    Horrible shot from Cook. Still, I have no sympathy for Beer, he knows where the line is. And it's not like he's charging in.

    I'm amazed the non-striker's don't make it their business to watch the line.

    compared to:

    117 wickets at 31.45 with 3.08 wpm

    Not counting this test.

    Was worried about Mitchell - I think he averages ~24 with the ball in matches where he gets 30 or so with the bat. But he's been pretty average, one or two quality balls.

    Cooky, wtf.
    Significantly better bowler when he gets a decent score batting. But not as drastic as many have said.

    Too busy trying to get a quick single, but whats more important ? A wicket or a single ?

    You're right tho...

    Watching for no balls and lbws should be the fulltime job of the non striker these days.

    Good job billy. Why didn't he call it first up tho ?

    His foot was hanging in the air. If his foot had been behind the line but in the air then it'd be fine. Billy wasn't really sure because it was a few cm in the air.

    I remember there being quite a few no ball wickets in 05. Was so annoying.

    Looks like there's a bit there though with Beer. Gets a nice curve on the ball.
