Thanks for this, just watched it again and you can clearly see the moment when Dharmasena decides to "take matters into his own hands". Shame. I've said all along that it would be the worst World Cup ever and it looks like i was right.

Love it when the Saffer commentators pout and moan when things don't go their way. Also I stuffed up in fantasy cricket and transferred Steyn out for this game rather than next so I officially don't care any more.

See if you do a lot of choking now there's less chance of doing it during the knockout phase.

All the scrubs that picked ABdV when there was every likelihood he wouldn't get much of a bat are going to get a million points

As an American watching cricket for the first time, the casual racism of some of the commentators has really caught me off guard. We've got our own brand of it over here, obviously, but I guess I've grown used to it.

Great sport otherwise, though. I'm seriously considering dropping $100 on the ESPN streaming package so I can get HD and watch whatever match I want.

I reckon the mentions of the size of the IND v PAK TV audience will outnumber said audience.

this was the first casual racism i'd heard but i'd bet bottom dollar that any you hear would be from either an australian commentator or one of the english toff twats.
