Nor me. Looks like only this morning anyway.

It’s going to be tough, and tough is what we haven’t been.

Without our mistakes in the field we could hace been looking at 300 from the Aussies. Now we haven’t got hardly any bowling either

Leach overstepping off a five pace run up! unbelievable! Its annoying when an express bowler does it, but not a left arm spinner!
BTW isnt that another thing technology could help with, save umpire looking for it!

I like Burns a lot, he's by far been the best opener from either team.

It's almost like picking players in good county form pays off, who'd have thunk it?

Don't need the rain DES, this pitch is a road.

Also helped by Starc bowling pie after pie.

Root might want some rain after getting hit in the crackers though.

The real question is, do we declare at 600 or 650?

It was given by the third umpire, the standing umpire did not see it.
It's easier to beg for forgiveness, than ask for permission.

There were other no balls that the umpires didn't call earlier as well - apparently.

It does feel like on field umpires are very half-hearted with looking at no balls nowadays.

It seems they leave it to the third umpire to make sure a wicket doesn't fall to a no ball.

Generally I'm with Des though, a spinner should never overstep.

I totally agree a spinner over stepping, should be shot at dawn.
