    Agree, that is the reasonable thing to do

    An injury incurred externally during the match - like from a collision or being struck by the ball - is allowed to have a runner IIRC.

    Full substitutes are allowed provided there is approval from both captains before the game has begun and after team sheets are exchanged, but I wasn't aware you could do this during the game. I'll have to look this up.

    I also didnt know this happened recently. Links anyone?
    Essentially the new rules are if you suffer concussion in-game at domestic level, you are allowed a full substitute.

    Also, there is no internal/external injuries reg. runners anymore. There are no runners allowed, period.


    And I do think the full replacement thingy is a fair rule for games where the player gets injured during the game. Good that is being trialled in List A in Australia.

    Does this mean a player who gets any sort of injury,not just concussion, which prevents them continuing in the game will have a full replacement ?

    the runner thing is an ICC thing, you can still have a runner in county cricket; that is, the mcc rules still allow runners

    the concussion sub is a CA thing. CA wants it in FC cricket but they'll lose FC status if bring in it because the ICC don't want it. However, similar to the grade thing, if a player gets called up to the test squad during a match, a sub can happen

    There've been quite a few cricket stories bandied around in the past week or so. Feels more interesting than the buildup to the first test.

    What's with this?

    Younis Khan c †Bairstow b Stokes
    BA Stokes c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Wahab Riaz

    Why do we need to know the full name of Pakistan players but only a surname for everyone else?

    Cricinfo just keeping the white man down again, I guess. They do it with Indian players too. It's stupid. If you're unsure who's playing, you probably won't be looking at the scores anyway.

    Can understand it with a name like Singh, I suppose, where there's number of contemporaries who share the name - RP, Harby & Yuvraj as examples. But otherwise, yeah, don't get it.

    I suppose most Pakistani and Indian players have pretty short term careers, so it's nice for their families to have the full name on the scorecard when they frame it on the hovel wall.

    Because Khan and Ahmed are amongst the most common surnames in Pakistan. Generally, subcontinental first names have much more variety in first names than the western countries, who are mostly a blurry mess of Bens and Steves and Michaels and Ians. Conversely, it's not so for the family names in the SC, where you have a gazillion Singhs and Khans and Patels.

    I get what you're saying, but there's a few Smiths around the place too, but you don't see a scorecard which reads Khan c Stephen Smith b Starc.

    Sif Younis Khan would ever get dismissed by Starc.
