    Vaughans front foot when bowling

    There's never anything grounded behind the line at the point of release as he's always on his toes.

    Are they all no balls?

    As long as part of the foot is grounded behind the line when he lands, I think it's alright.

    But none of the foot is grounded behind the line. I don't think grounding comes into it, but just part of the foot is required behind the line. I've been known to be wrong, though

    The law for no-balls (IIRC) is that part of the foot has to be behind the line, whether it be grounded or raised.

    Pretty sure they would have been watching more closely than TV spectators.

    I see, now that you mention it I have heard umpires say that it doesn't necessarily have to be grounded, the foot that is.

    Thoughts on Vaughan's bowling? One of the better part-timers going round imho.

    Turned in good performances against both Ireland and Bangladesh I think, they looked pretty cluless trying to play him. The West Indies didn't really want to hit him because all the pace was being taken off the ball, Dalrymple could have had the same effect if he was bowling.

    I know he had been flaming, but he was bringing up some decent discussion points this time, even if they were primarily all anti-England.

    Should have bowled a lot more during his career, but his knees have probably restricted him from taking the ball more often. never forget the beauty he got sachin with at trent bridge in 2002, murali would have been proud of it.

    Didn't look like it - Dalrymple bowled some rubbish and wasn't keeping it tight. Vaughan lobs it up more than practically everyone, his hand grenades are highly useful on a good day on a high scoring wicket.
