    Could've done without the farcical dancing in the dark that ended the final, but that was hardly Australia's fault.

    Is this a "Gilchrist/squash ball/glove" thing?

    Is this regarding Gilly and his squash ball in his glove?
    NRL Tipping Champion 2014

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Hope not - that's been settled and it violates neither the laws nor the spirit.

    Ah BB beat me to it.

    I can't believe how little interest one day cricket talk is for me at the moment.

    Only Sri Lankans ever suggest otherwise, and Australia aren't the most liked team in the world among neutrals, so that should tell you something.

    Yea well until Murali goes and plays as a pitcher for the Yankees Sri Lanka have no room to talk about fair play....

    Whats wrong with a squash ball in the glove? All it does is reduce his bottom hand's grip on the bat so he wont use as much bottom hand.

    I mean talk about clutching at straws, but come on, cant they come up with something better than this? Why not call Lee a chucker? Throw in a bit of hypocrisy to the mix.

    I would love to know if Sri Lanka ever called Lee a chucker with Muralidaran in their team....lol
