    Hardly surprising on a pitch with such low bounce. Get too close and you won't react/might get smashed in the face, though
    do you think people will be allowed to make violins?

    Yea, agree with that. Should be closer with this slow pitch.

    I would rather err on the side of being too close where you can at least get your hand on it. Have there been a lot of catches which have gone high and quick in this series?

    Anyway it doesn't matter this time. India has a sniff but will need another couple of wickets today.

    replication of Trott's 1st Innings dismissal, must be something with that delivery

    EDIT: FFS, I change channel once to watch the last ball of the BBL innings and I miss a wicket... concerningly back-in-the-balance here. Can see 5-down at stumps at this rate.
