    Exactly, thats the thing. Murali bashers/haters just want another reason to be "against" him playing the game.

    It's something more like 70% give or take a few. Definitely not 99.99%

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I don't have a problem with the Murali catch, but do you really think it's only 70%? I think 99.99% is closer to the mark then 70%..

    Think about it...how often do those close catches occur? If you get 10 of them do you think you're sure almost every time that you've caught it? It would be more like 7 or 8 times out of 10, not 9.9 times out of ten.

    And if anything you (as a player) tend to err on the side of "I caught that" rather than the other way.

    Murali is not a cheat, but I daresay he could've chosen to defer it to the umpire. But in his own mind he felt he had taken it. The replays are unclear and at best it was a doubtful catch, although I cannot say it was not taken, because if he had spilt it he would've struggled to get it under his other hand considering the speed with which it was hit.

    I am surprised the umpires (who had a shocking day) failed to refer it for clarification.
    (in fact even if they had referred it - no one would be any wiser judging by the inconclusive replays and may be the benefit would've gone to the batsman )

    But its unfair to call Murali a cheat as in his mind he felt he had taken the catch (and who is to say he hasn't, as the replays are very unclear) .

    I don't mean that you claim the catch if you're not sure, I mean that in your own mind, if you make an error, its usually an error saying "I caught that".

    As a player I am sure at least 9 out of 10 rather then 7 out of 10, most definately. It's like nicks when your batting, you watch the ball, you know whether or not you caught it, especially in a catch like Muralis..

    Two actualy

    Taylor got a shocker too, lets hope that if he umpires in the final he has a much better game.

    Good, balanced response. Congratulations on your team's win, Jason.

    Thanks, Voltman. I daresay Oram's decision would've made a significant difference compared to the other shockers, given Oram is a player capable of making big scores at very high strike rates.

    I am disappointed that Umpiring at such crucial games has become so poor .

    NZ were also affected by Styris not being able to bowl and Macmillan not being able to bowl.

    Yeah but it's disappointing the other big players in the team didnt step up. The newer boys bar Styris and Macka did most of the good stuff. Good on the new guys though, will be good in the future. Also well done to Sri Lanka, you guys deserved it. Go kill some Aussies or Saffies!

    Yep, it's just typical for a NZ cricket team that the players always seem to pick up injuries at the worst possible times. There needs to be a deeper investigation into why our injury rate is so much higher than, say, Australia.
