No Ball

Adolf just watched McCullum given out off a no ball.

I saw it as the bowler bowled. The umpire was blind.

There should be introduced immediately automatic scrutiny by the third umpire of the bowler's foot and it's legal or illegal position via a vis the batting crease.

I don't believe for one minute you saw that as it was bowled. Perhaps on the replay that was shown a couple times, as I did, sure. But yes, it was a no ball.

Isn't it just part of the rich tapestry of the game of cricket?

Win some, loose some.

Well I did, so there!

More the threadbare arse of someone's worn out pyjamas.

There is a system of review using the technology available, which does show if it was a no ball or not. If McCullum was so certain he was not out, he should have appealed, but he didn't. Umpires are human - they make mistakes; sometimes you benefit, sometimes not. Lucky it's just a game, eh?
