The issue is by enforcing the follow on you run a risk. The risk that the opposition score 400, leaving a tricky day 5 chase of 200.

If you don't enforce you will be setting a minimum of 300.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

Interesting comments by Broad at a presser at the close of play....that the pitch conditions are more like Indian than English...

If the opposition scores 400 it surpasses the 300 you have set them.

But 400 in 4th innings is rarely done.

Traditionally day 3 is the best batting day at Lords.

I'll take your word for it. The same can't be said about the commentary which I eventually muted.

Aussies claiming non catches again.

Meanwhile Buttler walks straight off whilst being given not out.

Thats why umps use thier discretion to review if not sure about if carried or not. To naked eye (live), I thought it was out and am positive the keeper thought it as well. But the usual violin tune is played nevertheless.......

Do you actually believe what you wrote there? He knew he hadn't caught it, the same as Voges in the first test.

Now read what you just wrote. With cameras everywhere, review available, why would he claim something if he "knew he hadnt caught it"? I thought you actually played the game, even as a keeper.
Perhaps just another whinge........

Because maybe he would have been trusted and not reviewed it. He cheated, plain and simple.


Now listening to the Aussie media whingeing that DRS isn't good enough.

I tend to agree. Accept the umpire's decision and get on with the game.

It has to be maybe as we don't know whether he might have been trusted and whether he would have called for DRS.

However we know that another Aussie has claimed a catch that never was. 2 in 2 games now. Yet still some will defend them. :lol:

Yes, I got an Aussie player to cheat to distract on here. That said with the Aussie history, they probably do have a price.

It's a bit like tennis... you endure for five sets but sometimes finish in three.

Dodging the questions again I see. What did he get away with? How were his actions "unfairly giving Australia an advantage"?

Looking at the scores, it looks almost like things were evenly matched. We doubled their total runs, but they doubled total wickets (lost). :wink:
