    That change is before the ball is thrown.

    The actual change is a slight one where he realises he is in the middle and tries to back out.

    That is what I thought initially, but his main push towards the stumps is after he turns his head back.

    That doesn't matter, he started running towards the stumps knowing that AB would need to throw towards the stumps when he got the ball.

    Because that's when he puts the accelerator on. He doesn't deviate any further at that point.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Well I disagree, the replays show that he was intentionally running towards the stumps. The head turn shouldn't change direction to such an extent. Just look at how big the deviation from his initial direction end point and his actual end point is. I don't think he did it consciously though. It is a natural thing to try and run between the ball and the stumps, that is one problem with this law.


    Well done Pakistan especially Irfan and Farhat.

    What were SA thinking leaving Morkel out even though he is fit?

    Tend to agree with blankwave here, he was trying to protect his wickets, albeit unintentionally and more out of instinct. It can't really be proven either way though.

    the series is nicely set up at 2-2. Pakistan to ignominiously lose the last match
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
