    Good point there. And they need to incorporate appropriate commentary somehow. Last ball, I needed 4 to win, and he leaves it outside off. A more suitable line would be, Big swing No ding, or sumfink along those lines.

    And non-strker can get run out.
    My Bes XI of all time:

    1. H Sutcliffe
    2. J Hobbs
    3. D Bradman
    4. S Tendulkar
    5. B Lara
    6. G Sobers
    7. A Gilchrist
    8. R Benaud
    9. D Lillee
    10. M Marshall
    11. I Khan

    I don't like drug addicts.
    I don't like chukkas.

    Few of them are real good like this one:
    That ball was just like my ex-wife. Short, wide and slow. Wilson decides to leave it alone. I wish I'd done the same.
    I would like to watch bowlers dominate batsmen like a dog would a tail-wagging contest against a rabbit. Which means I spend most of my days fuming and cursing the game. The Newlands Test between South Africa and Australia has vindicated my belief that batsmen are a bunch of weak-minded, inept fools only good for waving about sponsor logos.

    Its looks so awful to read. One ball six to win and he says firmly defended off the back foot! WTF?

    The BT commentary isn't too bad (rarely do I read the same play twice), but the player names could be better !
    Learn how to play great cricket.

    Take more wickets with better cricket bowling technique.

    As a BCC rep let me categorically state that changes are supposed to come thru next season.
