Why wasn't that given out ?

It was an umpire’s call.

Must have taken into account that the bowler looks far to much like Stewart Downing too.

I reckon, when that much of the ball is hitting the stumps, the third Umpire should over-rule.  Perhaps a rule to bring in after the Final though!

I think it takes account of the margin of error in the technology.

This will be a good test of Roy’s ability ahead of the Ashes.

I wish Ian Smith wasn't so biased with his commentary, they are supposed to be neutral.  It's making me more nervous.  I'm glad i don't smoke!!

I don't mind him actually.  He's not like Ian Chappell, who thinks all non-Australians are shite, he's just so enthusiastic and desperately wants his team to win, which is fair enough for me.
