    Australia's Answer to Stump Mic's

    I was reading the paper on Thursday and it turns out Australia have successfully got the broadcasters of the first test against Bangladesh to turn the stump mic's down...

    Apparently the team agreed on the prank before the game... However it was mainly Gilly who was the ring leader cos he was closest to the stumps for a long time..

    On numerous occasions Gilly was giving massive plugs for various team sponsors... The article contained about 5 quotes that he said ranging from 3 communications to Milo Bars but the best one was what he said after Roy fired in a return to Gilly at the stumps and Gilly said "Woah that throw was hot, he must've had a Milo Energy Bar before play to give him lots of energy".

    Very creative and well done Australia.

    Perhaps they'd have been better served concentrating on playing the game then messing around.

    How funny would it have been if they'd lost?

    But did they?

    Best of both worlds really. It's not like they underperformed because of Gilly doing that.

    Come of it, saying things in the field has no adverse effect on a players performance, in fact, talking to the keeper in between balls helps the slips to relax and save mental energy
