Aye, there was quite a bit of bad umpiring there. How many LBW shouts were rejected? 7 or 8 good shouts, 2 of which were definately out, and the caught behind nick that was not heard by the ump. And Tresco. ECB should bribe some friendly ump's for the 4th test.

102-7 a lead of 185, say they stretch the lead to 220 - 250 that should be defendable with a good effort. Even getting south africa out for 185 is not completely out of the question - although I wouldnt back england to do that.

SA 63/5 dispite the Up's attempts to make us get out 2 SAfricans to get only 1 back in the pavilion. Game is somewhat carefully poised.

Good on yer, Blighters.:D

"Kirtley's match figures of 8 for 114 are the best for an England bowler on debut since John Lever's 10 for 70 against India at Delhi in 1976-77........There will be much debate about whether this was a fair pitch for a Test. It wasn't a great track - today's bounce was sometimes so low that Hawk-Eye could have done with a periscope and a conning tower - but it did produce a great match, which everyone who turned up on the last couple of days will long remember. And it seems churlish to complain about a nailbiting Test match. But expect a few pointed remarks in the papers over the next few days. It's probably a relief for Steve Birks, the Notts groundsman, that the next Test follows so quickly. All eyes will soon be on Headingley, where South Africa will be without the peerless Pollock."

So says Wisden. And who are we to argue with that?

Methinks the Poms have a very good chance at Headingley.

Go for it England.:D :D :D

Duty waiver for Tendulkar draws flak
Wisden CricInfo staff - August 11, 2003

Sachin Tendulkar's Ferrari 360 Modena, gifted to him by the Fiat group after he passed Don Bradman's tally of 29 centuries last year, continues to attract controversy after it received exemption from the duty normally levied on foreign-made cars imported into India.

The car arrived in Bombay on Friday after the duty of US$ 245,000 was waived on the US$-163,000-dollar Ferrari upon a request by Tendulkar to that effect.

But the decision has drawn flak from various quarters, surprising considering Tendulkar's normally high status in public esteem. "Sachin has earned enough for five generations, he needs no financial considerations," said Pramod Navalkar, a leader of the Shiv Sena party.

A survey conducted by the Indian Express newspaper revealed sharp public criticism as well. "They do this for Sachin and then spend hours checking the baggage of hockey players who have also brought laurels to the country," said reader Vijay Kalantri. "Would hockey star Dhanraj Pillay have got the same treatment? Sachin can afford to pay and he should have."

Another letter said: "The duty would have gone a long way in alleviating suffering of poor farmers who sweat in the fields to make our country self-sufficient in food."

The chief minister of Maharashtra, Sushilkumar Shinde, defended the decision, however, saying: "Sachin has brought name and fame to India, we must accept that contribution by such gestures." Tendulkar himself declined to comment on the isue.

Do super-rich cricketers need tax breaks?

""They do this for Sachin and then spend hours checking the baggage of hockey players who have also brought laurels to the country,""

Thats because cricketers are far more worthy than primative hockey players.

If you go to cricket.org right now, you can see a picture of Sachin being tortured. :confused:

Bad light stops play with the poms 164-1. Let's hope they build on it tomorrow and get a good innings up.

It is the most intriguing decision I have ever witnessed.
I was watching the match live on TV. Two left-handers at the crease, and yours truly, the spectator left-hander, cheering every boundary scored in a wonderful century partnership, when the umpires offered the light with 25 blooming overs to go, and the batsmen who have been dealing mostly in boundaries, accepted it like they were visually challenged or something. They were sighting the ball as if it was a bloody football and instead of grinding the Proteas into the dirt like the Ozzy convicts would have done, the Poms tucked their bats under their arms and walked off. Crazy, I call it. I can understand if there were only a handful of overs left before draw of stumps, but 25 overs?:(

Beats me, mate. Mark Butcher has done some crazy things before but this takes the cake. He had a century for the asking. Even a schoolboy knows that a break in the game means a break in concentration.
