    I stand corrected on that one. The 3rd umpire can be used to see whether the catch was taken but not whether the batsman hit it. My apologies. But it doesn't change the fact that it was a really bad decision though. The bat and gloves were a long way from his body.

    Why?

    For daring to point out the flip-side?

    His bowling average is higher than his batting - I'd say he's more a marmite player at the moment.

    Its easy to say that after you have the luxury of seeing repeated slow-mo replays.... mind you im not sticking up for the decision, it was a bad one, but not the worst i've seen

    It's OK for one side to complain that the other are getting help from the umpires, but not vice versa?

    It's not a bad record though. Compared to other New Zealand bowlers, he ranks fairly highly (I know this contradicts my earlier argument).

    Could someone please tell me the difference between NZ fans complaing about Australia getting decisions and an Australian fan complaining about NZ getting decisions?

    Now Scallywag and I have never got on very well, but I don't see what he's doing that's wrong here?

    i don't think its any surprise that it was australia's two best ODI players, symonds and mcgrath, who rescued Australia. A solid win which hopefully doesn't mask the fact that our middle order is, in general, atrocious. Symonds is in hot form and Martyn isn't too bad (though has failed against NZ the past 4 times) however Katich is rubbish unless he comes in higher, and Clarke's a bit hot-and-cold of late. Let's hope they get Hopes in for katich quick smart.
    Andrew Symonds 143*
