    Tardy over rates in the Ashes

    Will either side get fined or will the umpires, as usual, turn a blind eye ?
    In the first test, England and Australia were both adrift of the over rate.
    Didnt follow the second test, so dont know.
    In this test so far, OZ had to use 30 extra minutes and still came an over short ( scheduled close is at 5:30, play continued till 6:00 pm).

    Shocking really considering there were no real injuries and there was spin at both ends for a while.

    Over rates are a problem the world over.

    No doubt the fines will be issued providing that any extenuating circumstances are taken into account (ie lots of wickets/physio trips to the middle)

    I don't think I have seen so many, captain- bowler conferences. Ponting and Warne had four in one over, and that was just after lunch. You think they would have worked out the field during the break.
    You know it makes sense.

    Probably because they had to spend so long chasing leather

    Really ?? I thought it existed only with Sourav Ganguly.

    well more batsmen have been getting hit than usual, but not that many more

    apparently the over rates in the womens ashes have been quite impressive

    It truly is appalling that it takes on average more than 4 minutes to get through an over.

    You only have to fine the captain 20% of his match fee for EVERY over that is outstanding at the end of scheduled play (note: not the half hour's 'grace') and the problem will be on its way to being solved.

    Alternatively (or in addition) do the same as they did in the Twenty20 - an extra six runs added to the total for each over shy.

    When I played Cricket, I use to hate to miss out on any of my breaks. I think they should just eat into their lunch breaks and tea break. I bet they would hurry up then.

    Do you guys like the rule where only an extra 30 mins is allowed ? What's the point of having the 90 over a day rule when they'll go off anyway ?

    The threat of suspending the captain is the best idea. I think it can be to hard on the bowlers to have to bowl for more then an hour extra.

    Still, the problems with over rates so far are nothing compared to the slow rates of the Indians, particularly under Sourav Ganguly
