Toomer logic:

1. If you ball tamper ( which is cheating).
2. Don't get caught ball tampering (cheating)
3. But later a player confess to ball tampering (cheating)
4. You still didn't cheat.

Oh so it was just a little cheat? Dear me that is clutching at something and maybe not straws.

Was Atherton convicted and penalized for ball tampering?

Deflect again.

If a murderer escapes conviction, despite admissions, is that person or their allies in a position to take high moral ground about other "murders"?

PS - some of those grounds over there. What sort of shape are they meant to be? Couldn't you find any round or oval shaped ones to use?

Sub-par grounds shouldn't host such a prestigious event.

Hello All, from New Zealand. So, I don't have any knowledge about cricket but I saw the above discussion it's very interesting and I'm looking forward to this.

May as well play in a corridor if shape isn't relevant.

PS 5-0 :lol:

I thought Atherton was fined for attempting to maintain the condition of the ball (keep it dry), much different to gouging out one half with a sheet of 40-grit.

Where in the laws does it say a cricket ground has to be aussie rules football ground shaped?

:lol: @ trying to keep it dry - when was this?

No, it doesn't have to be oval (or round) but quite laughable to have a multi-shaped poorly designed arena for such a prestigious event. May as well use a corridor.

With three games already forfeited due to the weather, this World Cup has set an unwanted record of having the most matches abandoned of any tournament, with 32 matches still to be played over the next month.

maybe they should give next tournament to a more suitable country like bangladesh at least they have more sun and have better symmetrical shaped grounds

They'd probably accept a point each quite gracefully.

Rumour has it that maybe next Thursday, but I'd take it with a pinch of salt.

Morgan broke the record for most sixes in a one day game .

While Rasheed Khan 0-110 most runs conceded by a bowler in a WC game .

They still gave it to Smith last night. The only thing is that it's hard to tell the difference between Bangladeshi supporters and the locals. They appear very similar.
