I thought Durham signing Bancroft was a bit iffy, but making him captain in 2 comps seems incomprehensible. But having thought about it, Durham have been down in the doldrums and maybe this is a tactic to stir up some controversy, get some publicity, and push the club into the limelight.

If Bancroft weighs in heavily with the runs and Durham are promoted then all could be well. Think he will still get a lot of shit threw at him by English crowds and the media though.

From the IPL last night


You wanker, Ashwin. Not cheating but definitely not in the spirit of the game. I agree with the Kiwi commentator (Simon Doull?)


It looked like Ashwin stopped his bowling action to purposely wait for Buttler to move forward. Pre-meditated?


I'm sure Joss Buttler won't forget to say a few words the next time he is keeping and Ashwin is at the crease









Steve Smith was next in. Obviously, Ashwin was inspired by that cheating bastard

I thought the law on that type of run out had been revised? Obviously not. Ashwin was never at the point of delivery and just, literally, stood and waited until Buttler was out the crease. Very snidey. Suppose it wasn't under the laws, cheating, but completely unacceptable in the spirit of the game.

However, cricket is a funny game at times and a lot of things like this come back and bite the wrongdoer on the arse. Hopefully this will happen.
