    Just pitched in line and gone straight and just nicked the stump? No.

    Just pitched in line and came in/out and hit middle or the inside of the leg or off stump? Yes.

    Just pitched in line/just off line and just nicked the stump and not playing a shot? Yes.

    Agree. LBW referrals should be streamlined,

    Decision of 3rd umpire should be limited to whether bat was involved. Maybe the "pitched-in-line" aspect also can be checked.

    Irani Trophy

    Dravid to open alongwith Jaffer? HT says so.

    It also says Ganguly was dropped to accomodate a 5th bowler.

    NDTV says it was coach Gary Kirsten who wanted Ganguly out.

    What's with SCG and coaches?

    Remember the last time Dravid opened with Jaffer? For the love of God, no, never again. The most painful opening to a series since Steve Harmison's infamous wide.

    painful from spectators PoV but in the Irani Trophy it would make sense as it is a nice opportunity to check Dravid's form and his suitability for the test series against Australia [vs someone like Kaif's for example]

    2 off 44 is pretty painful for the rest of the team too. Dravid hates opening, hasn't he said so?

    Haha, so true, if he averages 500 in this series, a few years down the line "Ponting wasn't as good as [blablabla] because up until October 2008 he averaged 12 in India, he's so **** and he looks like a ****in monkey!"

    Dravid is a terrible opener, and should not open, as he himself has came out and said he dislikes it in the past. Jaffer is a good batsmen on low, slow pitches, in Pakistan and India. He has made a few scores there, and if he plays this series, that's what I expect again.

    So what do you Cricket Webbers think Australia's line up should look like? With spinning pitches, and low bounce, I think we need a front line spinner in our line ups.

    1. Hayden
    2. Jaques
    3. Ponting
    4. Hussey
    5. Clarke
    6. Symonds/Watson
    7. Haddin
    8. Noffke/Spinner
    9. Lee
    10. Clark
    11. Bollinger

    However I am not sure what spinner to include, because Casson is young, and inexperienced, as is Dan Cullen. I am leaning towards giving Bryce McGain one series while the younger spinners develop further. If Symonds goes, and plays, it is possible to name Ashley Noffke in the side, and have Symonds and Clarke doing the spinning. Simon Katich is another possible option, batting from 6 (or opening, 3 or 5 - he is very versatile) and prociding some handy spinners.

    Maybe, but by the time they get on the field again, it looks like they'll all be in their 40s.

    against Delhi, Dravid should be made to open to test his form out .... Laxman should bat at 3, Tendulkar at 4 and then Kaif

    these guys should take up the responsibility of putting up a good score and getting themselves in the right groove for the series against Australia

    Considering what has been dealt to Ganguly, i'd say Dravid is lucky to get a chance.
