Get home from work with SL at 210/2, by the time I've opened a beer and sat down they're 215/4. Was kinda looking forward to an exciting finish...

On the topic of boundary ropes, they should have padded fences like in baseball.

They should just have spikes on the fences.

The issue wasnt players running into fences exactly, it was players feet going under fences and getting stuck / being sprained in drainage ditches while sliding to stop a four.

Why do England have such abysmal odi all time run scorers. England's number one would be Australia's 13th or so.

Shane Watson would hold England's record by 400 runs.

Ian Bell would only be Zimbabwe's 4th highest run scorer right now

Because Styris has been his friend and traveled around the world with him for about 15 years and probably knows a thing or two about his food preferences?

Except he wouldn't have because when he played people were all fat, slow and couldn't field.

Anyone know if this England game is streaming audio anywhere? Usually it's easy to find on Tune In, but now that NZvSL is over, I can't find the Carlton anywhere.

I'm not sure if it's kosher to ask for video streams, but if so, anyone got any hot tips for that? Usually cricinfo has a great stream available but for some reason it doesn't show up for this match.

Baseball is dumb and the ball goes near a fence about once a month so it isn't really comparable.

Old ding dong's not a bad batsman eh. Root's batting freely without the fear of Warner's left hook.

Pad the fence and put the current boundary ropes in the gutter. BOOM problem solved. Next!

Was tried, only encouraged players to go even harder at the fence and didnt cut injuries as a result. The rope one-two meters in from the fence works, the issue is the way it's been used to take the piss of hitting sixes now.

Edit : Gonna be a big run chase tonight.

Thanks!

In some sort of stupor I put a decently large wager on England in the middle of the night last night. No idea what I was thinking in a half awake state. I swear I need some kind of lock out on my offshore book account. I used to wish I had a breathalyzer on my gambling account, but this time I wasn't even under the influence, just sleep betting.

If England can get Smith cheaply they'll be good. I don't rate a batting lineup of White, Fince, Smarsh and Maxwell.

Weird that this video should come up, my mate and I watched this an hour or so ago. Anyway the reason Langer retired was because that was the rule of that Mickey Mouse Super 8s comp they were playing. Same way he was getting 8 for balls hit over the fence

I didn't realise it was Super 8s, it looked like the Mercantile Mutual/ING Cup, also that explains how the first over went for so many runs.
