am i the only person who thinks he didn't hit that?
I know he's not very good and I still think it was a pretty silly selection but I can't help but love Todd Astle as a cricketer. Beautifully technically correct batsman who doesn't actually score any runs and a slow burning bluffer of a spin bowler; I can love someone like that no matter how bad they are.
Haters can tastle it.

Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
Tastle hits 80kph! #apocalypse2012
if this is a maiden or mathews stays off strike get southee on for an over at randiv
edit: btw we still need tastle to appeal for lbw in this test.
we should give guppy a bowl for kicks too
Gotta agree with Brian Megatron here. I know Astle is very much a work in progress as a pure bowler, isn't amazing right now and has come on when the match situation was massively in our favour, but Sri Lanka, very good players of spin, have respected him when before the match upon seeing a leggie on debut and consdering their difficulty with our quicks they would have targeted him for some Tahir style smokin'. That's a big tick in my book, even if he never plays another test.
Just bowl a 6th stump channel to Mathews and let him flirt with it.
I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowdOverrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaulone day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
Thanks **** things have turned around.
GUPPY GUPPY GUPPY
Showing why he's in the side hey?
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
woohoo this might just happen guys and girls
Wicket time. The less wickets we need with the new ball the better.
Need Mathews to really get amongst them.
lol 141kph all of a sudden
Who even needs the new ball? Reverse is the way mon.
I hope Mathews gets 50. Such a good batsman.
