    "...we've raised the white flag and paid out on England's heroes after sending the Kangaroos back to the balcony before lunch," a company spokesman said.

    So that's been the problem, we've been playing League and they've been playing Cricket!

    Well not exactly. I think they were still trying to play cricket. The problem was that they only ended up with a RL scoreline.

    He should never have gone to the UK in the first place!
    Selectors are as much to blame as Clarke himself.

    I hope I didn't really see Archer and another Englishman laughing at Steve Smith lying prone and concussed just now. But I did. So I hope there was something else that was funny.

    I saw it as well, highly unlikely but I hope Patty and Haze have a new pill to dish out some treatment to Archer when he comes out to bat second time.

    Buttler and Archer are pricks.

    Root accused of 'blatant cheating' in Ashes


    England Ashes captain Joe Root has been accused of "blatant cheating" for claiming a dubious catch in the second Test at Lord's.
    Former Australian Test paceman Andy Bichel levelled the damning charge at Root after he claimed to have caught substitute Aussie batsman Marnus Labuschagne.

    Root's catch was cleared by the third umpire, despite appearing to touch the ground as it entered his hands.

    "As a fielder, you know if your fingers are under the ball; I clearly felt that was the case," Root said afterwards. "I'm an honest guy, I am not going to try and cheat the game regardless of the situation."

    Yet Bichel told Macquarie Sports Radio that Root had done exactly that.

    "It didn't carry – you can see that," said Bichel, who took 58 wickets from 19 Tests.

    "It's ricocheted off the player as well, so it's bobbled a little bit to him. He knows he's picked it up on the half-volley. It's blatant cheating.

    "To stand there and then all of a sudden give Marnus a bit of a send-off as well – 'Mate, you're out, get off here' – when Marnus has seen the footage of it on the TV as well, that he's not out and he shouldn't be out. It was a real bizarre one from Joe, a man of that experience playing it out like it did."

    Bichel suggested that Root, still 1-0 down in the five-Test series, was a man under pressure.

    "You'd like to think that there was a real gentleman's approach to that; just say, 'Mate, I didn't catch that', and you don't even go upstairs for it. It just didn't happen," Bichel said.

    "A little low point for a man under pressure in Joe Root. He just hasn't got any runs and now it's just mounting on him day by day."

    No chance.

    It was never a catch and Joe Root is of questionable character.

    That "but his fingers were under it" is what I hear a lot of cricketers saying. It's funny that Todd Woodbridge thought otherwise. I know the law states that it can't touch the ground, but it seems like there is a directive that if that even if it touches the grass, so long as his fingers are under it, the benefit of the doubt is going to the fieldsman. At least, that's how the cricketers themsleves tend to see it.

    Yeah, except his fingers weren't under it, not even near it. The ball bounced up into his widespread grasp

    And every catcher knows the feeling of a "catch". He's a lying cheating toe rag
