    I think if I were a T20 coach I would teach my players to think about 3 ball blocks - rather than thinking about an over at a time. Too much seems to happen over 6 balls.

    As a batsman you don't really want to face 3 dot balls in a row.

    And as a bowler and fielding captain you can predict a batsman's approach based on the last couple of deliveries.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    That's not a bad approach imo.

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    Is it just me or have these pitches so far been quite brutal for a Twenty20 league?

    it seems like 75% of T20 pitches are illsuited to T20
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Depends on how you define it; I think it keeps a match more interesting if a par score on the wicket ends up being 120/7 or so rather than a runfest.
