    Technically it's not the case; the third umpire can over-rule not out decisions as well. It just never happens. I certainly don't think we'll ever see it for an inside edge based decision as it'd require the umpire to actually tell the third umpire why he didn't give it.

    It's just how it works out, simply because you have enough time to review things before the next ball is bowled.

    If this is the system that would be used without challenges, so that Tubby Taylor is a happy man and doesn't see the umpire's authority being "questioned", then it's arse-about-face, and you end up with that situation with Finch last year refusing to walk off.

    Tassie won the toss and are batting. Could be a long day for SA, I personally think Doolan is due. I am looking forward to seeing how effective Lyon and Botha are bowling in tandem.

    Klinger injured, meaning Miller gets a promotion to open after scoring 1,0 on debut.

    At least he'll have something useful to do now.

    Tassie's batting line-up today = long day. Ponting loves AO so you'd back him to ton-up but I'll be interested to see how construction of the new stands affect conditions. Rain/thunderstorms predicted tomorrow and for the rest of the week so a result is unlikely you'd think but I'd confidently pencil in Tassie for points since they'll be batting in in the only good conditions..

    Watching a small passage of play Cosgrove facing Christian has been hilarious. Pitch is basically on the member's edge of the square and Cosgrove has been beaten I dunno how many times trying to drive through cover going for the short boundary. He knows he shouldn't but he just can't help himself. Sums him up nicely.

    Some good fields set by Botha so far, Cowan and Cosgrove having to work hard.

    1/182 currently, Tassie doing superbly. I've really enjoyed this partnership, Doolan is a bit underrated. Cosgrove has started the year superbly, opener could be his spot.

    I think Sam Miller should concentrate on his batting

    Medium pace pies with no swing is my assessment.

    Bowls off quite an unnecassirly long run up. He just ambles in and then puts some effort into the delivery with a quickish action.

    Lawwwwwng day. 1/222 with a session to play, Cosgrove in the groove and alpha types like Ponting and Blizzard in the sheds.

    Tas to finish the day 450+ or all-out 295 losing 9 wickets all caught on the fence in the arc between fine-leg and wide mid-on.

    haha, hilarious passage of play, Cosgrove just run-out after being forced to run > 1 on an easy 3, the person manning the camera initially focuses on the SA team celebrating but then zooms out and looks for Cosgrove walking off/having a bit spit, KFC umbrella in the way, quickly moves left and almost falls off the stand desperately trying to keep on Cosgrove in frame.

    Bugger missed it!

    Disappointed for Cosy, its the exact way you wouldn't want him to get out as it'll take a little gloss of what appears to be good century.

    I watched some of it and he looked so secure and in some ways its crazy to think his opening partner is the Aussie opener and not him.

    Such an important knock for Doolan who was under some pressure to keep his spot with Bailey coming back soon.

    What a 6 by Punter.
