Cricket Part II



It legit wasn’t, but this is… Australia will hold on from here



That’s where the fielder needs to have been practising the well disguised fumble over the goal line for a behind


I’m pretty sure it just counts as 4 overthrows, so 7 runs


I thought it was seven, like an overthrow, but I could be wrong.


Lol, how did that not hit!


I thought it would be a 7 too…but not sure if would count as penalty runs to the batting side.





Treated as overthrows. All 7 to the batsman


Mike Hussey needs to change his voice. Sounds too much like Michael Clarke and Clarke offends me.


Found it

19.8 Overthrow or wilful act of fielder

If the boundary results from an overthrow or from the wilful act of a fielder, the runs scored shall be

_ any runs for penalties awarded to either side_

and the allowance for the boundary

and the runs completed by the batsmen, together with the run in progress if they had

_ already crossed at the instant of the throw or act._

However I read that as 12?
-3 runs
-4 overthrows
-5 penalty runs?


Which means Paine would have kept the strike. Makes sense.


4 overs


20/20 hindsight, I know…but Lyon would have been more psychologically suited to bat at 8 in this situation rather than Starc or Siddle.


18 balls


18 balls


Amazing effort considering it’s 8 vs 11


Definitely better suited.


I wonder what homework Micky Arthur has lined up for the Pakistan team?


Reminiscent of the draw at the MCG in 60/61 when Lindsay Kline and Slasher Mackay held out for a draw against the Windies

Or the draw against the Kiwis when Whitney would not have survived a video review against Hadlee in the dying overs.


Was that a stumping chance?
