    Kohli's ticks an awful lot of boxes, tbh.

    Dire ball - check

    Team up against it - check

    Rank shot execution - check

    Subfielder who'd never held a catch in tests before - check
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Leaving aside that it was Kohli who did it,Bell's was still worse as far as this series goes.

    Probably but I still think KP and his premeditated sweep shot was worse.

    Yuvraj's charge down the wicket premeditated too, fiddle around on a turning/bouncy track was worse than Ashwin's for mine.

    At least the intention from Ashwin was right from the start.

    So, it would have been fine for Match awareness had he got out edging to slip on 4 like Dhoni or charging down the pitch to do nothing like Yuvraj ?

    Yuvraj's a bit run-of-the-mill for this stable.

    Presumably you're going to wait for the end of this series before closing nominations?

    Would seem a sensible idea.

    Might leave this up for a while, tbh, hell of a lot of Test cricket being played for the next while.

    Reckon? Dire and painful as it was it wasn't to a rank full-bunger. Bell's probably does Kohli's on "batsman's thought process", but I think on "match situation" and "quality of delivery" I'm favouring the future Mr Augustus.

    Ashwin right to attack, and despite the plaudits, primarily a bowler. Doesn't belong here IMHO.

    Jono's Boyfriend did it at a bad time but so did Bell. I think as far as match situation goes they're even. To the day I'm still blown away by a guy charging down the track first ball when his team were staring down the barrel of a huge first innings deficit, while I think JB had every right to attack the full toss. Have seen Stuart McGill take a ton of wickets off ful tosses, so it's not a first by any stretch.

    I don't see Brumby's nomination of the below in the list so nominating it myself

    Yep, nothing wrong with Ashwin's. At that point all that matters is runs, a ball will have your name on it anyway
