Ball-tampering Earthquake rocks the Cricket World

March 31, 2018

Mark Nicholas, as Editor, Cricinfo in Newsin Asia, 30 March 2018 where the title is “This is another wake up call for cricketers”

It was remarkable that on the front page of yesterday’s Cape Times, beneath a picture of a quelled township riot, the headline printed in large bold font announced: “Disgraced Aussies kicked out. ” The Cape Argus was barely less coruscating: “Guilty trio on first flight home.” The words might as well have had an exclamation mark after them. If you didn’t know better, the immediate assumption would be that drug-trafficking, manslaughter or some such terrible crime was the reason. But no, it is ball-tampering.

Swirling Currents and Rips within the Australian Cricketing Dispensation –TODAY

March 27, 2018

Daniel Brettig, in ESPNcricinfo, 27 March 2018 where the title readsWarner and CA headed for Pietersen-ECB parting”

David Warner and Cricket Australia may be headed the same way as Kevin Pietersen and the ECB, with the vice-captain increasingly isolated as the instigator of the ball-tampering incident that has blown up into a perfect storm.

In reference to the view within the team that Warner had hatched the idea and delegated it to his opening partner Cameron Bancroft with the captain Steven Smith‘s approval, ESPNcricinfo has been told “the truth is starting to come out”. With the CA Board holding a teleconference with the head of integrity Iain Roy and the chief executive James Sutherland following the former’s hurried investigation, sources close to the board confirmed Warner “is the issue”.

What a Violent and Unique Six-Balls in Test Cricket! …. with Just Desserts!

March 23, 2018

Rabada to Warner in Over 03

3.4 = Rabada to Warner, FOUR runs, too full, rifled to the cover boundary! Warner climbs into a cover drive, low in his stance and using 141kph to his own advantage
3.5 =Rabada to Warner, FOUR runs, oh, even better, a murderous scyth past extra cover for four! This wasn’t a half-volley but he dispatched it via first-class delivery to the ropes
3.6 =Rabada to Warner, FOUR runs, skelped off the pads, three in a row! Morkel gamely gives chase but he can’t reel it in, Warner lets his bat do the talking in his battle with Rabada – this could become a proper brawl (within the confines of the Laws, of course!)
Rabada to Warner in Over 05
5.1 =Rabada to Warner, SIX runs, digs the ball in short… and Warner hurls his bat, KABOOM! over fine leg! That has gone miles, high up into the stands – someone is going to have to fetch it!

5. 2 =Rabada to Warner, (no ball) FOUR runs, FETCH THAT! Five boundaries in a row for Warner off Rabada! Just a touch of width and he slashes it through backward point, and you can sense KG’s temperature rising!…………….Rabada had overstepped too… Literally, not figuratively this time

5.3 =Rabada to Warner, OUTbowled hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim! Rabada lands the decisive blow, up off the canvas and demolishing off stump! This enthralling duel is ended by Rabada slicing through Warner’s tentative defence and sending the stump pinwheeling back. An extraordinary innings from Warner, struck on the arm and then responding with a flurry of boundaries before being run through, bowled off stump for the third time in the series

DA Warner b Rabada 30 (28m 14b 5×4 1×6) SR: 214.28

Dickwella’s Stupendous SIX! The Umpires caught Napping

November 21, 2017

The Ongoing ESPN Commentary on Paper

Over 15

Nice and bright still. Although it’s only 3.20 pm. Hard to believe the light might not be as good in another hour. Here’s Shami

Mohammed Shami to Dickwella, SIX, over long leg! Goes after the short ball, climbing up on his throat, but the good thing Dickwella does is keep his eyes on it, swivels on his back foot and sends it soaring.
