    Another lame dismissal for both Roy and Buttler. Root missed a straight one which is a concern. So many of our batters got a start and then couldn't kick on like a certain Mr Smith will probably do.

    Not looking forward to seeing the Aussies get a 150 lead on Sunday afternoon.

    The thing is, the scores indicate that they were getting in. If you are getting 15-20 then getting out it means that you need to concentrate harder. Great we won the cricket world cup, but the longer format of the game has been sidelined for quick glory!

    Not even Smith could stand a short pitch barrage, retired hurt!

    The man is an excellent cricketer which begs the question why did he feel the need to cheat?

    I will never think of him other than as a cheat no matter what he does!

    I'm afraid it runs in the Australian 'culture' if you can call it that, win at all costs! Very good player with a tarnished legacy....

    Just as a matter of interest Dave. If one of our players dived to win a penalty that won us a game, ie cheating. Would you feel as strongly, or is that a different matter?

    I stopped supporting Wes when he dived to get a penalty against Watford.

    I'm not convinced any of our present crew would cheat. I certainly hope not.

    I despise cheating <cheers>

    Smith ruled out for remainder of test.
    First player to be substituted after an injury.
    New rule states his replacement can bat and bowl.
    About time this rule was implemented.
    It seems totally unfair that a sub can only field.
    It's like having a sub in football,but he cannot score.
    Back to the game
    We are165 ahead with 6 wkts in hand.
    Looks like a draw,BUT we could force a win.
