why was Cresselly stopped from scoring 40 or more ? Is the game automatically over after they have passed the opponents score to win? I'd have 'thought' that in county cricket (without knowing the rules) that Cresselly could have batted on till the end of their innings.

Yes.

 

Cheers Hairy. I knew that that was what happened in T20 & ODI's but I honestly never thought it would happen in county cricket.

I remember many years ago, around Rodney Marsh time, Australia bowled the last ball of an ODI underhand as New Zealand needed 5 or 6 to win. There was a bit of an uproar at the time

The culprit was Trevor Chappell.

His profile on Wikipedia now shows:- 

Bowling: Right arm medium, right arm underarm.
 
The problem was not just that he bowled underarm, he actually bowled a grounder.

Fair play to Richie Benaud. He certainly didn't  hold back there and nice to see Rodney Marsh making his feelings known.

 

I was watching Crickets Greatest on Sky the other day and it was the Adam Gilchrist episode. Gilchrist was a 'walker' and they brought up him walking in the World Cup against Sri Lanka during either a semi final or the final. He was saying he always walked but there were quite a few of his team mates that were furious at him after that game. He did say he got great support from Ponting who didn't agree with him walking but said he was right to do what he believed to be right and to play the game the way he believed. If only more sportsmen thought the way Gilchrist did. 

 

Recently got Sky Sports back on and was looking forward to The Ashes only to find out it is on BT Sport!!!! Gutted i ll miss it now unless i can find a decent stream for it

I didn't realise that. I knew that the ladies Ashes series has been on BT but I didn't know about the men. Starts later this month......I'll get the morning (our) action.

I've amended my will so that neither Australia nor England get to play for my ashes.

Just watching highlights of the final T20....England won but Australia must have rubbed butter into their fielding hands including the wicket keeper. The amount of catches they dropped was really unbelievable. Anyway the series was drawn so the sheilas keep their ashes.
