You can't give him 3 chances and expect him not to destroy you.

Incorrect, you seriously cannot count the chance when he with out on a no-ball!
You can give Denley and Roy 3 chances they wont destroy you .:wink:

There was nothing bad or insulting about what those aussies said to him, he needs to grow some "cogliones".
Can you imagine what will happen to him when touring the West Indies, seeing his family?
Or what about when he finally tours here, the aussie crowd will give him much more than he is receiving.

Its ok though the abuse Smith, Warner and Bamcroft received though?

abusing a cheat is the same as racially abusing someone.

Aussie crowds are reisling cats, you hardly even notice they're there.

Every day you show up how you are not really a cricket follower.

The fact that Archer WAS NOT racially abused, just debunked your theory.

Sorry, but I never claimed to be a hard core follower or a critic like yourself.
Doesn't mean i cannot have an opinion!

And you can't claim that as a chance, because he was not out, period!

All not taken chance are not out. Otherwise they're be more than just chances.

You can have an opinion but when they're ridiculous and show how you don't follow cricket then expect them to be ridiculed.

Looks like the Poms in more danger with Stokes possibly ruled out from any further bowling.
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/cricket/201 ... ion-widget
England fear Ben Stokes may not bowl again in this Ashes series after their talismanic all-rounder suffered an injury scare at Old Trafford on Thursday.

Stokes managed to bowl less than three overs on day two of the fourth Ashes Test before leaving the field part way through his third, wincing, and with soreness in his right shoulder.

Having been hit for 30 runs off 17 balls, he returned to the field a few overs later but did not bowl again as Australia amassed 497 runs.

Stokes’ sudden withdrawal have prompted concerns that he might not bowl again in the current series as the fitness of the host’s frontline bowlers continues to cause problems. James Anderson has already had to withdraw from the series having bowled just four overs in the first Test.

"As far as I'm concerned if it was very, very serious he wouldn't have retaken the field," said Jonny Bairstow at the close of play. "We know what a character Ben is, how strong he is mentally and physically. I'm sure it'll be assessed overnight but as of this moment in time I genuinely don't know [how bad it is]."

In the last Test, before Stokes’ Herculean century, the Durham all-rounder bowled more than 24 overs in Australia’s second innings. All but two of these were bowled consecutively, and in total he delivered eight more than any other England bowler.

Stokes’ injury follows a warning by Shane Warne earlier this summer that he was at risk from burnout. Before the World Cup, the former Australian spinner advised that he should be used as a batsman first and bowler only second.

"If I was in charge of England I would bat him as high up the order as possible to give him as much time at the crease as possible," advised Warne. "He could then bat like a batsman. But do not rely on him for ten overs [of bowling]. I would say just take wickets, bowl in short bursts and don’t worry about conceding runs."

Stokes’ absence could be crucial in deciding this series, as Australia only need to draw this Test to retain the urn. With Stokes potentially out of England’s attack and Steve Smith on the back of a double-century in the first innings, England start the third day 474 runs behind with nine wickets remaining.

It was a chance and they missed it.

and to think you called me a narcissist for saying similar.

The funniest bits were where you thought you could produce a pitch for swing and the pitch wouldn't affect team selections.

Back to the cricket, this is a huge day for england. If they can put on a good day and a half of batting, they could save this test meaning it will most likely be a draw and go down to the final test. If Australia can get them out under 350, then I think we will go on to win, weather permitting.

As for Smith, I thought Archer had his measure? :lol:

Something was clearly wrong with Archer, what that was I don't know. Down on pace, down on aggression..

Even his bouncers seemed to be aimed at Paine and not Smith. Weird theory but is he frightened to hurt him again, or is he not enjoying the Manchester weather?

You really don't understand what a chance is do you? Think about it and try again.

Well done Aussies we retain the Ashes, but please do not play Warner next game, he has been an embarrassment. If he does play just start us on 0/1 and give Broad the wicket.

Good to see the dominating team in this series finally retaining the ashes on foreign soil.

Sadly, the english "summer-rain" couldn't help the home team, once again.

If it wasn't a no ball it would have been out. Same as if a catch is dropped, if it was caught it would have been out so it was a chance / missed opportunity.

Only need 1 element that went wrong but which could have gone right to be a chance.

You serious?

it was an "ILLEGAL" delivery, the fact that it was caught should not even be mentioned.
That takes Precedent, end of.

Well either we will be considered better or it will be neutral - based on that logic England currently aren't better than Australia in Test match cricket in any conditions
