    Get well soon Yuvi!!

    are you talking about this particular test? or the previous two? ill give you the benefit of the doubt and assume its the latter in which case pretty much our selectors were stupid enough to think maxwell is a test cricketer but if it wasnt for homeworkgate he would have in all probability got a game here

    There was unholy pressure on the selectors to pick two spinners for the second Test and MJ was last in the seamers' pecking order. Was DOA either way; homeworkgate probably did him a favour for not being responsible for the rise of Shikar 'Tip Foster' Dhawan.

    Cricinfo commentary asks:

    How different would this have been had they appealed for that accidental mankading?
    Has the law changed or something? I though that you could only be runout before the bowler had entered his delivery stride. In this case Starc had not just entered his delivery stride but practically completed it before the ball hit the stumps! Is this wrong?

    Look at his figures

    Tests

    6 wickets @ 27 vs SA

    9 @ 19 vs SL

    ODIs

    14 @ early 20s with good economy

    If his name wasnt Johnson, he would have been one of the first chosen for the first test

    Don't need to look at his figures. I looked at him bowl. Bowling short may work against the little Sri Lankans but against a proper team it would be absolute cannon fodder.

    Surely the reversion was just to allow it at all...?

    I've checked the laws:

    15. Bowler attempting to run out non-striker before delivery
    The bowler is permitted, before entering his delivery stride, to attempt to run out the non-striker. Whether the attempt is successful or not, the ball shall not count as one of the over.
    If the bowler fails in an attempt to run out the non-striker, the umpire shall call and signal Dead ball as soon possible.
    So Dhawan couldn't have been given out, I think.

    EDIT: Well cricinfo seems to think it's about "delivery swing", whatever that is...

    Nah I'm sure you're allowed to mankad during delivery stride now.
