    Rubbish delivery but the guy has played a lot in India so shouldnt be surprised if it doesnt bounce like the WACA

    Twatto should seriously be not in the team if he can't bowl. Hideous shot selection. Almost tailender like.

    Not quite a half tracker but surely better to have a look and see how balls of that length are bouncing before goling for a shot like that. Was pretty much the first ball from Kumar to Watto which was short of a length.

    He is a compulsive player of the pull shot though.

    Yeah if you're a compulsive hooker it's very tough to not play that shot once you see length. If it was someone like Ishant or another bowler who gets better bounce he would've gotten away with it.

    He's had a look. He's 20 odd not out. Only a bloke who doesn't play the pull shot wouldn't be in position to try and pull it. It wasn't marginally short, it was a really, really short ball.

    Was still funny though.

    If we were going to go all Nufan and play for a draw, we should have played:

    Cowan
    Warner
    Hughes
    Watson
    Clarke*
    Usman
    Moises
    Backboard
    Big No
    MJ
    Patto

    That had to be close, eh? Hitting leg for me; back in his crease.

    Umpire could not possibly be certain that Hughes appeal would have hit the stumps given the severe angle from around the wicket.

    To get an LBW from that angle you have to make the ball straighten and it did not do that.

    But according to the commentators that was hitting clear as day!

    Huge test for Hughes here...he has got a start and MUST go in with it to save his team. This is the kind of innings that can make a players career.
