    Hasn't the rule changed to tell that you can start with that position but bring it back to normal before the ball is bowled? Or was it the other way? Either way, very odd they will say that is NOT a no ball...

    It can be a bit of a grey area as to exactly when you make the call of where the foot is with spinners because
    a) they bowl with their heel in the air, so the umpire has parallax error to deal with when making the call (obviously not so with replays)
    b) they don't tend to plant their foot as firmly as fast bowlers so it can move in the delivery action

    Which is why we're unfortunately unlikely to see an automated solution for a long, long time. It's really not always cut and dry.

    Is this the weakest Australian touring side of the past 50 years?

    lol @ a discussion FINALLY about Sachin not batting anywhere but 4 and forcing batting order rejigging just for that in case of injuries... Never thought Ravi would be the one to initiate that discussion too. Laxman's response was priceless

    He was silent for a moment and then laughed and said something like Sachin just likes to bat at 4... But that pause and the smile said a lot, I felt.
