Of course you should.you should not be able to retire hurt if you go out onto the field to bat with an injury.
Huh? I’m honestly confused where you are coming from, he was good last season
While ago now. Players took the piss out of it so unless the injury clearly happened in the match, you get no runner (someone else will verify finer details better than I)
I think you'd be silly to rule out the Sixers. They're a hugely professional franchise, and in T20s it only takes a couple of special efforts from individuals to win a match. Scorchers favourites, but it isn't a sure thing by any stretch.So Perth win the final? Easy money
Few years ago. Was getting exploited by fat blokes namely Ranatunga (former SL captain) who did it routinely
people like to bring up Ranatunga but he's got nothing to do with it. if you want to find one flash point, it would be an ODer between England and SA in 2009 when GSmith started cramping up, requested a runner, the umpires didn't want to give him one and Strauss didn't want to allow it either. A couple of years later the ICC banned them in their playing conditions (not MCC laws of the game) to eliminate the grey areas because the issue kept on coming up.
Yeah and that’ll be the way they run with it. You can’t accuse them of any wrongdoing because it’s in the rule book and you cant force a batsmen to stay out there. But clearly it was tactical because Silk had no idea about it and was fine to continue.Duty of care will probably be the reason. You cant force an injured batsman to stay out there even if he was injured.
Joe Root retired ill in the SCG test 4 years ago come back on and batted. Then went off again and didn't come back.
Carey's first game back for the Strikers was good, he scored 67 and put on nearly 150 with his opening partner.If I was rating the Strikers tonight:
Carey : 1.5/10
The ironic thing is , the test players inserted looked lethargic and performed poorly. Agree with most on this thread , Weatherald and Nielsen probably would have performed better than those two tonight. Even as test players I reckon it takes a couple of games and for some around a good 5-6 games to get into the groove of T20 cricket. Not buying into that you can adjust your games straight away and be at top notch for either version of the game.
But there was no way those players were getting a gig ahead of those two.
Had Adelaide made the final would have been tempted to drop Head .
