How can they not have any decent angles on that catch?

Was about to say, why have they just not got fixed cameras on the slip cordon? Only need to adjust it at the start of each over

That alarm that goes off for a no ball is annoying already. We're only 2 overs in

'What can be done to help English players learn to play spin?'

🙄

If only counties could somehow create spin friendly wickets, I'm sure they'd be encouraged by the ECB

Yeah I had no objection to the decision but only checking from one angle before giving it seemed such a poor decision, how many angles did they have for indian decisions? Weird how they've suddenly got a crystal clear image when it benefits an Indian player

That decision only really needed one angle. I reckon the Leach decision needed several angles, but can't really argue with that decision, either.

England bowlers looking tight but not particularly dangerous.

Its about the clarity of the process though, from an England player perspective you've been screwed by the third umpire in previous tests, you've got the soft signal as out and the third umpire is overturning within 30 seconds. Spend 10/20 seconds to watch from a different angle so the process can be defended easily. 1 camera angle can be very misleading, while I agree it was not out it really should require at least 2 camera angles on all checks.

To me it’s like they are just waiting to get out - block block block at 104-8. Think I’d have a swing and try and get to 130

This seriously pissed me off today. What did Stuart Broad think he was doing? Bat out the ******* test? Remember the days when he used to swing hard. Ridiculous wasted opportunity.

Yes, that would seem right enough in the interests of fairness. Something for the powers-that-be to closely look at. Hopefully Root will ask for some clarity.
