yes its a bit sad. like the 1970's all over again. Thompson, Lillee....

what Frances Edmunds called an afternoon of murderous deliveries.
Its this business of the 22yards distance between wickets. it was designed at a time when most of the players were a footshorter, and some guys bowled underarm.

Its hard to believe there was a time when the game was played without body armour.

even though my mum doesn't like it...

In one sense, I’m not sure my mum would have had much choice in whether or not to like it! There was some element of “supporting wife” there but she does enjoy the game.

I don’t think she ever played cricket. Netball and hockey (neither watched now) were her favourite games in school and her favourite outdoor activity became getting lost in the mountains – not in the sense of loosing your way but in meeting few people. That and getting lost in the garden...

Just in case any American reading this thread is bemused by the whole thing, here are the simplified rules of cricket, clear as mud:

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out.
When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game.

It's what makes Britain great, I tell you. And I should add that women play cricket too, even though my mum doesn't like it...

A few random memories.

Capital Radio used to play a game against the Kent village I lived in for a while. Michael Aspel came down a couple of times.

On other “stars”, I remember some knock out thing in another Kent village where village players got paired with county players who came from a Kent vs Lancs match. Clive Lloyd was amongst the players bowling to and facing village opposition.

Dad was a keen village cricketer and at lot of childhood summer Sunday afternoons involved going to these games even if there wasn’t always a lot of cricket watched by us.

In the N Wales days when he played for Llanwrst which was about ½ hr by car from us, mum would often make her own way later. I used to prefer it that way, otherwise we would be stuck in the Eagles Hotel car park for what felt like ages (although, in fairness, I think he only had a pint) while dad had a post match drink with his team mates.

In the Kent days, mum got roped in as chief sandwich maker. The wife of another player would join her at our house and they'd have there little “factory” going on the Sunday mornings. I think the only time I got roped in was once when they were stuck for a scorer. I wasn’t 100% sure what I was doing but think I did OK...

I know that Kew Green isn't exactly what you might call a village green, but on one occasion in the early seventies I quaffed a pint or three there whilst watching a charity match in which Michael Parkinson and Elton John were playing. Not a bad batter, Parky. Not much good for owt else, mind...

Nah then, Mike, plumb (or plum) relates only to blatantly out LBW, nowt else. "Bloody umpire never give 'im out ell-bee, though we could all sithat 'e were plumb..." sort of thing. I contend that a batter would rarely be in a good position to decide whether he's out leg-before. With LBW it's always best to let the umpire decide. In most cases, the batter may have an inkling as to whether he's out or not, but he can't be sure enough to walk. Walk if tha's bowled or if tha's nicked it, if tha's a gent, but 'ang on if tha thinks that t'fielder grassed t'catch...

Hi Steve

" Do batsmen ever walk after an LBW shout?"

Nowadays it is extremely seldom for any professional Cricketer to walk for anything. It is far more usual for a batsman to be angry and argue even when they are plum out on the photo evidence.

”Do batsmen ever walk after an LBW shout? Intriguing...”

Intriguing indeed, Steve. I find it difficult to see how a batsman would be able to judge whether the ball would have been ‘hitting’, and he’s not likely to be able to judge that the ball was legal, e.g.. no foot-foul on the part of the bowler - he would be watching the bowler’s arm/hand, not his foot, and he probably wouldn’t be able to see where the bowler’s foot fell in relation to the popping crease.

Time for pedantry Dave?do you dispute the content?breaking news here if you pssted it you would find it, here By Press Association

England were dismissed for a calamitous 67 as their hopes of reclaiming the Ashes were left hanging by a thread on a day that could prove a line in the sand for their misfiring Test batsmen.

Joe Root’s side arrived at Headingley on the second morning of the third Test with a huge chance to play their way into a series-levelling position after toppling Australia for 179, but ended up turning in a sorry, insipid display.

They were sunk inside 28 overs for England’s third-lowest Ashes score on home turf and the eighth worst overall. Australia responded by reaching 171 for six at stumps, a lead of 283 that positions the holders to go 2-0 ahead with two to play.

You can only play the team who turn up. 'Twas ever thus. City won the league last year despite their unarguably best player, Kevin de Bruyne, missing for much of the season. Liverpool almost got there despite the absences of The Ox and Adam Lallana. The team that wins is the team that makes fewer mistakes. Umpires and referees are human beings in sports played by human beings. Errors of judgement are part and parcel of the passion in sport. As long as there's no deliberate partiality we should enjoy it for what it is. Or just don't follow it at all if it irks you so.

”Umpires can make mistakes, players are entitled to (and usually do) stand their ground and there was nothing sinister about what happened. Get over it.”

Absolutely correct, Jon. It’s always been so, there is nothing in the Laws of Cricket requiring a batsman to ‘give himself out’, and it’s understood by true lovers of the art of the greatest game in the world.

In reality England lost the game, they won because of a bad umpiring decision

If Lyon had taken a simple run out chance, we wouldn’t have got to the debated lbw. If Australia had been more prudent with their reviews, they would have been able to review the Stokes one. And there are possibly other “if only’s” that just might have altered the outcome of the game.

In reality England lost the game, they won because of a bad umpiring decision, their first innings was very bad and their are questions about their batting line up that need to be sorted
Steve Smith will be back, and in my opinion the aussies have a good chance of winning the series.

Your second post was, to my mind, deliberately antagonistic.

"stokes knew he was out and should have walked, but obviously he is not a gentleman"

The batsmen cannot know for CERTAIN just where the ball in heading, it is up to the umpire to adjudge whether or not the ball will hit the stuffs.

The umpire made an error.

But all of this detracts from a stunning innings from Stokes, with stalwart defense from Jack Leach.

One that should be celebrated by every cricket fan in the country.

"But I have never seen an Aussie walk."

Adam Gilchrist, the Australian wicket keeper/batsman, was known for his belief in walking but I don’t think you would find many “walkers” from any country within professional cricket.

Incidentally, Stokes has said that he believes the DRS verdict is wrong and that he was not LBW. Any feelings regarding the reliability of the technology?

hi

What a load of c**p - I have played and watched cricket for many years.

I have played with and against Australians for many years. Great guys.

But I have never seen an Aussie walk. They wait for the umpire to decide.

I don't think any Australian of the recent game held nothing but admiration for Stokes. As they walked off the pitch at the end. I noticed that every Australian player made a point of congratulating Stokes.

The press are just trying to create problems.
