Anyone watching?

Know a couple who are taking their grandchild to a game.

Other than that not much interest.

Yeah, good fun and a lot of volatility. Going in a few weeks.

By the way, anyone know why Birmingham women only faced 84 balls today? Or is it a reporting error?

Ah yes, that's weird, both BBC and the app hadn't recorded the last 16 balls. Amateur stuff.

What stage were Phoenix matched at 1.01 there?  Was it in the act of losing?  Surely they weren't matched at it before that point?  Fat finger?  Must have been a serious chunk to wipe the market out.

96th ball went for 4 , leaving
4 was wanted off last 3 balls ,

Could it of been then ??

Which I suppose technically would have been 3 off 3, given the market would have been voided in the event of a tie, so maybe. 

Cheers for the reply.

even in test matches players back flipping it over the wkt keeper, in to row 6,so in hundred etc besides making it easier and easier for batsmen ,they clear the ropes by miles with just a flick,why are the boundry ropes brought in 10 yds,etc ,why dont they just use natural boundaries /fences of the grounds as the boundaries , as in golf as the equipment balls,bats etc get better/easier for batsmen only defence is to make courses/grounds bigger,cricket make them smaller

I totally agree.

I share your dislike of short boundaries but you certainly couldn't play to to the fences in this era...someone would be destined to suffer very serious injury with modern fielding..

What a game this is!  £25 matched at 1000, £100k matched at 1.01, market suspended, THEN we discover Curran has bowled a no-ball. Spirit left needing 3 to win off the last ball, Curran bowls a yorker and cleans up middle.  Class.

Great entertainment. Just imagine telling the wife you've picked up £25
off a right mug.

Those last few minutes must have felt like years

Laugh  Indeed. 

Hopefully some more drama in store today.

No need to feel sorry for them in the slightest. Courtsiders / fast pics guys / no bet delay punters, whatever they are, are nigh on cheating the system. Was quite funny to see it.
