    He wasn't nicking off defending though. He was nicking off trying to drive a moving new ball when the match (and series) situation called for him to stick around and let Dravid continue to accumulate runs.

    Indeed, but honestly I think there have been 1000s similar dismissals. I'm not lessing the ****ness, but we're talking about all time awfulness.
    Do I contradict myself?

    English batting leaves was so normal at one point, the fact is they were all brought up on the fact you couldn't be LBW if it was pitched outside off-stump, irrespective of if it jagged back in. May seem a small matter, but in the end it's the reason people had high back-lifts, if the ball went outside the stumps you padded up.

    Gooch, Gatting, Smith, all ****ed up constantly that way. The fact is pitches were so horrible back then this was probably a great relief and they couldn't get out of the practice.

    Fair enough, certainly not a thing I'd be against in general

    On the videos it's Read leading Hollioake IMO

    It's inexplicable how you can misjudge a ball like that.
    At least Hollioake was playin for the spin ...

    Mark Waugh was also trying to attempting to play the ball.

    Nominate Carl Hooper, Melbourne, 2nd innings 1992-93. Caught skying a ball to mid wicket off Warne when trying to save a test match on day five. Led to the classic "Oh Carl....." commentary from Richie.
