Technically, if it could later be proved that he hadn’t made the time limit, Australia should have retained the review.

Did the umpires make a blue in allowing David Warner to review after the timer?

Yeah, come to think of it I can’t remember too many successful ones … and yet, he’s flown under the radar in this regard compared with Shane Watson. Maybe he has had a minority of successful ones here and there.

Boonie can be AB’s vice president, just like in their playing days.

Three Australian cricketers who deserved a knighthood

Yes I agree. And a statue of him in front of parliament house.

Yes. And presented by our own head of state when we become a republic.

Knighthoods are dumb, and we are Australia not England. We have to have our own head of state, and not a monarch.

Just goes to show how little cricketers often know about the Laws of the Game.

Mickey Arthur enraged after obscure rule saves Joe Root

I agree with your dislike of bad manners – few things are worse. I’m not saying I’ve never been guilty of it mind you.

I’ll tell you what I am sticking to: neither being Indian, nor a senior public servant has any relevance as to whether they are telling the truth or not. We will never know for sure. Remember the impeccable character Sachin Tendulkar went on record as corroborating Harbajan Singh’s version of event in the Symonds case. What I find amusing, in a rather dark way, is that so many Australians believe Symonds, but not Mohammad Siraj … I happen to believe both of them.

In any case, when the alleged wrong doing is entirely verbal in nature, it is next to impossible to prove because it quickly and pretty much automatically degenerates into hearsay he said she said type stuff, totally different to when the alleged wrong doing is physical, such as assault, or murder or whatever else. So I suggest we stop arguing about it. It’s pretty obvious neither of us is going to budge from our stand point.

Far more relevant than being a public servant.

That is 100% a hindu name.

Bangladesh are not easy beats at home any more in any case as both Australia and England found out in 2017.

Root relieved to break his century drought

Yeah, I don’t have a problem with that point of view.

Should wicket keepers be allowed to be replaced during a game?

Do you think paying entrance money gives spectators the right to say whatever they like to players?

After an exhausting week off the field, it’s time to play cricket

No, I am entertaining the possibility that the spectator was a Hindu – there’s an 80% chance in fact – and Mohammad Siraj is definitely a Muslim.
In fact, if anyone can provide me with the name of this seemingly beyond reproach Indian spectator, I will be able to tell you with total certainty what religion he is.

It depends what was said.

Goodness, that is some tangent you have gone off on … do I really have to spell it out for you? It is well within the realms of possibility that the Indian spectator whose word seems to assume gospel truth among some could well be a Hindu that doesn’t like Muslims.

Who said that India doesn’t have a major history of ethnic and religious intolerance come violence? I certainly never said any such thing.

Go and learn a bit about India which prior to 1947 included Pakistan Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Maybe he thought Haddin might still make some runs with the bat, remembering runners were still allowed then ….

Should wicket keepers be allowed to be replaced during a game?

No, I queried whether he was completely independent of the Indian player. It is quite clear that I am talking about possible baggage he may have been carrying from home.

It’s not a conspiracy theory at all, but merely a sensible recognition that it is legitimately problematic to just go on the word of that one Indian spectator simply because he is Indian. Anyone that knows anything about India would not disagree.

After an exhausting week off the field, it’s time to play cricket

How do we know it’s a completely independent person? Do you have any idea of the social, ethnic and religious demographics of India and the history?

After an exhausting week off the field, it’s time to play cricket

You think the word of one solitary person should be considered gospel truth simply because he was the same nationality as the player concerned?

I seem to recall him fighting most diligently against the saffies in Adelaide early 1998 to save us a test and preserve our lead to win the series. And this after a match winning ton the previous test that actually gave us the series lead in Sydney.
