    Yep, whether they mark centre with the inside, outside or middle of their shoe.

    Or with a bail.

    See also: If after the bails have been dislodged for a failed stumping/run-out/etc, they offer their cricket bat to the umpire

    If you were making a video to demonstrate correct batting technique you wouldn't use Steve Smith.

    I'll repeat, Smith's technique against spin - what's wrong with it?

    Looks like 2 full rounds of SS for blokes to put their hands up.

    His technique against quick bowling isn't the worst either.

    Yeah he looks weird but the way he played some quality bowlers in really helpful swing bowling conditions on Day 1 at TB and Day 2 at The Oval was pretty impressive. Most (all?) of the ways he got out to the quicks were down to poor shot selection, not flawed technique.

    The knock on Smith has always been that against the moving ball he's too loose. He's come a long way in that respect but there's still plenty of work to do.

    Hasn't had a knock on his spin game though. Not sure where the poor technique calls come from there.

    my memory is worse than smiths technique against spin, but wasnt he troubled by swann one time and then threw it away in response? that doesnt mean his technique is bad as such, just askin'

    Was coming up to a hundred and a lack of experience got the best of him and played a horrible slog.
