    I've lost count of the number of times Clarke has done that almost straight away to a spinner.

    Great shot.

    Reckon they should look to take Herath large. Get a quick 40 and it's game over.

    Difference is, they take singles during the middle of an ODI. If you tell batsmen they can't take a single out of the powerplay in an ODI, they'd get out IMO.

More often than not, when it doesn't work it's because the bowlers can't bowl to the plan.
    Can you point me to where the commentators were critical today?

    Nope

    Anyway, if you were happy with the tactics today, that says it all

    nah the difference here is there was no urgency for chandi to score runs at any pace. wouldnt matter if he took 3 sessions going at 1 an over, his game was to protect n00fan prads, and just grab 2's and 4's when he could

    Commentators are always critical of those tactics, you've clearly been listening to Chappell go on about it for years and thought you'd jump on it. Benaud said something during the lunch break.

    There's a reason why captains all over the globe employ the tactic in those situations. You can thump your chest and say we should be getting both of them out!!!! But it's to the detriment of the team to allow easy boundaries at that point in the innings when you don't need to get both out.
