All countires do it, ICC are gutless

^ This, sh1ts me to the back teeth!

Cricket in general is struggling to keep people interested and then they go and do this. They should be made to either 1, keep playing till they bowl 90 or come back the next day, early and start bowling the extra 7 overs they missed the day before.


But this then brings it's own problems.
They tried making teams bowl all overs at one stage in the 80's and 90's - Alan Border reckoned the Windies used this as a tactic when they were bowling - they prepared themselves to play that long, but the batting side for all intents and purposes had batted for a day/6 hours and then had to bat for another 15 overs.
Coming back the next day becomes a problem if conditions change, the batting team might not get the chance to take advantage of a log, hot afternoon, or the next morning may be better bowling conditions.

Suspend the captain for two breaches, which they did for a while, but I believe have gone away from.

At the start of the over when the fielding team is ready to bowl let them, if the batsman isn't ready stiff biccies, I bet the glove changes happen a lot quicker. That fixes one of the issues. Now all other blame can be put on the fielding team. They are already given an extra 30 minutes to allow for DRS etc etc, the overs are meant to be bowled in 6 hours not 6 and half. Automatic one game suspension for the Captain and anyone who bowled that innings, no exceptions.

Well bowled Mitch Marsh, swung the ball more than any other Australian bowler this whole series.
Handy to pick up the last 2 wickets in quick succession.

Lucky for Warner this is the last test, by time Aussie summer rolls around this will be forgotten and he will bully lesser attacks on flat tracks.

Am I the only one who thought that DRS wasn't conclusive with the noise not lining up with the bat?

Yeah, I'd agree with all that except I'd give the bowlers a first warning that would stay with them for two years and if they are involved with a team that has another breach then they are suspended for a game.

No. I thought the same. The noise seemed to coincide with him dragging his foot.
