Disgraceful match to watch, over rates and scoring rates were abysmal (Elliott 44 off 208 balls!), but Slats played a blinder. Ambrose and Walsh were unhittable for almost all their bowling spells.
    My father goes on about this innings whenever someone mentions Slater. Or Langer for that matter.

    yeah.. Lara was playing a bit of a classic before THAT run out by Langer too.. Think it was some new #3 who was batting with him and he made a half century too.. Pretty sure THAT was the reason the series was tied. No saying how the game would have gone had Langer not done that freak run out.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
