It's Cottrell's "thing" - he's actually a soldier and does it after every wicket in any competition (so no Matt Hayden doing the cross and looking to the heavens in televised test matches only). If it weren't a personal thing for him, I'd tend to agree it's a bit floggish but clearly not given the context.Marlon Samuels saluting Ben Stokes was brilliant but the salute is getting a bit old.
Don't worry, the next three matches have a decent likelihood of being rain affected tooThis is the second match I've been looking forward to all day because I can stay up to watch it to the end. The other one was Pakistan v Sri Lanka .... and that got washed out as well.
Haha, thank you - I did indeed!I think you popped this in the wrong thread mate
The forecast indicates that the rain this week is moving in a kind of circle, so if there were reserve days there probably wouldn't be a problem. Instead, we stand a good chance at having 6/18 matches rain affected, potentially to the point of wash out (I don't expect that to eventuate, but it's a possibility).Good place for tournament cricket!!
