    About time they start showing field settings in a small circle in a corner of the screen imo.

    I am sure someone else must have mentioned it but I loathe the concept of "seeing a bowler off" in limited overs cricket. I was talking to someone today about taking what you are given against the best bowler, seeing him off and attacking the others. That is absolute bull****. Not one good argument can be made. ****ed up cricketing idea for morons.

    I'm sure at least one good argument can be made.

    I don't mind the idea of just seeing off their last over, for example.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    An ODI never goes by without a commentator saying "double the score at 30 overs" for an estimate of the final total. It's always been bollox for a number of reasons, but even more so since the introduction of Power Plays and various other artificial stimuli.

    Or when it's a small total, or when you've got one spinner in the team bowling on a bunsen or something like that game the Zimbos won against the Aussies

    G'day all - new to site. Just been watching India/Aust and what grinding me is listening to commentators rave on about footwork not being up to scratch especially Clarke's early in his innings. What they don't mention is that footwork is a by product of how quickly you pick up line and length. Once you know where it's going the feet will follow. It's all very well to say Clarke should get further forward but if you haven't got the eye in yet it's easier said than done - go Warner you little legend!!

    People who obsess over fast bowling speeds, as if a 3 kph difference is going to be perceptible to a batsman.

    Or the Australian commentators managing to mention every 10 minutes that India doesn't use DRS so it's not available. I think we all know that by now

    If anything, it needs to be mentioned more often.
