    T20 Cricket World Cup

    Post by Rippin and Tearin on Wed Mar 16, 2016 11:47 pm

    Hey guys,

    Does anyone know of any free online radio commentary of the T20 WC?

    I see BBC 5 live have some games but I get Geo Blocked when trying to listen via them on tunein radio.

    Any help would be much appreciated as the games are on quite late here in NZ so best bet for me is to listen in bed as opposed to getting up and watching.

    Cheers

    Good stuff NZ last night btw. Pretty embarrassing for the Indians preparing a pitch like that and then getting walloped by a team not renowned in the slightest for either their spin bowling or their playing of spin....

    Cant help you mate.

    But if anyone is tuning to the cricket forum here, is it the same in all formats of cricket as what i have just seen in the England v Afghanistan match.

    Wherein, for a runout - the batsmen's bat was a half bat length within the crease, but 'raised' off the ground at the time of the runout - it is out ?

    Seems ridiculous.

    If it hasn't been grounded then that's been out since Jesus was a lad.

    Yep that's right. Think of it this way:

    NFL - the ball crosses the in goal line it's a touchdown
    NRL: the ball must be grounded in the in goal area

    Same rule applies in cricket, bat must be grounded and over the line

    Should have been clearer - the bat has grounded over the line, and then lifted and then the bails off !

    I've seen that before where the bat has bounced and not slid smoothly or the batsman has dived and the momentum has lifted the bat over the line, both batsman were given out. It doesn't happen often and it comes down to the letter of the law, the bat must be grounded. Another sport analogy is baseball, you touch base but over run or over balance and your foot comes off the base you can be tagged out.

    Yeah take your comparisons on board, seems harsh in cricket. You have made it back, who cares if the bat is lifted. This was obviously given out on a replay and it was very slight but very clearly off the ground.

    I'm with you. Once it's grounded it's grounded.

    I've seen it where a guy running hadn't grounded his bat but placed a foot behind the crease and as he continued his next stride at full stretch he was in the air and inline with the stumps as the throw at the stumps flew past just missing them and the commentators mentioned he would have been out. Now that's BS.

    I agree with ya. You're already over the line, that should be it. Technically if the ball was still in play (hypothetically speaking) and Dave Warner did his star jump and they wiped the bails off he'd be out. Which is ridiculous. It's also a ridiculous example but shows how bad the rule is.

    Funny you should mention that I got warned for something similar. Batted out 20 overs for a draw which won us the premiership. Last ball No. 11 blocks it, I jump for joy at the bowlers end and get warned by the ump I could have been run out
