Re: Final ODI: Eng versus the dirty rotten cheats.

IMO Sri Lanka should have warned him once - and whipped the bails off the second time but then withdraw the appeal. Would have made the same point without being overtly controversial. A third time would have been fair game. Incidentally, I know the local Bristol Sri Lankan team has an appalling repu...
