    98 out of 214, pretty decent effort that. Haven't read the report yet though, so there might've been let-offs.

    He was beaten on the forward defense. Don't see how that constitutes as throwing it away.

    No chances, although he did edge one through where 4th slip would have been, and he played and missed a few times, but not an easy pitch
    You know it makes sense.

    I thought he was playing a big drive?

    Nope, just followed-through on the forward defense a bit. Was beaten by the surprising speed and movement back in, for mine.

    A great innings, made difficult with the covers being blown off the pitch last night due to the storms in QLD. A loose shot to get out on, the ball swung in a little and a little bit of lateral movement too, gap between bat and pad too great IMO. A shame, he deserved a hundred and to perhaps carry his bat.

    It wasn't a defensive shot, he was trying to put it past the bowler for a couple.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    That's defensive to me.....

    Either way, we're not talking about a Warne-esque heave across the line to be caught on the boundary line, are we?

    One of his most mature knocks.

    If you don't count his early let offs.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Never said it was, was a good ball that came back. With Clarke if you can get the full ball moving either way you're in with a shout, often leaves a gap/plays away from the body. Well done to him though, quality innings.
