I think Smitteh stole that shot from one of the guys I play cricket with. He turns yorkers between his legs with alarming regularity, and has been doing it for years. Given he's about TPC's age and would have played against him in U/14As and U/16As in our area, it's entirely plausible.
well maybe that **** stole it off Smitteh budI think Smitteh stole that shot from one of the guys I play cricket with.

Yeah it makes me think they'll absolutely crush all and sundry in the group stages of the WC, but I'm steadily lengthening the odds on them getting through three knockouts unscathed. So, y'know, pretty standard SA.South Africa are weird. They're not top heavy, or even bottom heavy, they just have nothing in the middle of their side. It's all down to 3/4 batsman and 2/3 bowlers.
That's not a problem bud. Go listen to Athers and Gower call together. The silence is gloriousChannel Nine wants third umpire to speak up
There are still two games left to go but Channel Nine has given the thumbs up to the ICC's initiative of wiring the third umpire for sound.
As part of a trial before the World Cup, communications between the two on-field officials and the video umpire for the decision review system are being broadcast.
The only issue has been the amount of "dead air", or silence, during the telecast.
"While it's a trial for them, we're on air, it's not a trial for us – it's something they have to be aware of," Channel Nine executive producer of cricket Brad McNamara said.
"The third umpire needs to keep talking and communicating.
"Our feedback has been positive, the viewers have liked it, it's worked fairly well, from our point of view.
"With all trials there's been a few little things we've discovered that needs tinkering with but I think it's got genuine opportunities to become part of cricket broadcasts in the future."
