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

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.

Is that an issue with baseball style fences?

Baseballers dont have a need to slide at fences so who knows.

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.

Steve Smith, Aussie captain and literally the best batsman by a mile - the player only a couple of months ago they dropped because he wasnt enough of a stinkyhole for Michael Clarke's liking.

England fast bowler Stuart Broad has apologised after making comments about the UK minimum wage on Twitter.
The 28-year-old tweeted: "I've heard if you earn minimum wage in England you're in the top 10% earners in the world. #stay #humble."
Broad, who is in Australia on England duty, deleted the message after angry replies from some Twitter users.
Broad then posted: "No offence meant and sorry if any taken. The hashtag was aimed at myself."
The Nottinghamshire seamer is due to face India in the tri-series in Sydney on Friday.
In another post, he wrote: "Clarifying my earlier tweet, I merely wanted to emphasise my amazement at just how big the world is."
Since October 2014, the UK minimum wage has been 6.50 an hour for adults aged 21 and over, and 5.13 for those aged 18 to 20.

Another pathetic Tory stinkyhole. Not surprised at all

It's actually quite a big deal if the umpires don't know the laws of the game. The fact that it cost England the victory is incidental in this matter.

The umpires and England are a perfect pair. They both dont know how cricket is played.

I didn't watch the game but looked at the score and can only assume that it was a game of graceless Australian showboating

Australia treated Afghanistan with a surprising amount of respect, no showboating or over the top stupidity. The Afghan players have a lot of raw talent and the bowling certainly didn't deserve to have 400+ made against it. Batting wasnt great but what do you expect of players that would almost certainly never played against bowlers near the pace of Starc / Johnson?

Despite the huge loss, Afghanistan weren't an embarrassment at all.

Really? This is the last pair of actual batsmen, and I have no confidence on Woakes Jordan and Broad to bat well or play spin under pressure.

While Buttler is still in, it's still likely. I'm not confident Bangledesh can seal the deal while he's about.
