the scorecard says dravid ran Williams out... it was really a stumping... coz it was done by the wicketkeeper... and the ball was not of the bat.

no it was a run out...i'm not sure of the definition of a stumping but i think it's done as one movement or something without the ball bouncing and while the ball is in the gloves (not released)...i dunno that's what I've always thought of it as

Damn Martyn :mad:

It was India's day. They really played some good cricket. Lee gave away too many runs, shouldn't be pleased with that.

It could have been anyone's day yesterday (similar to the match in the MCG last week)

India's 303 was the highest total in the Gabba. Laxman, Tendulkar, Dravid, Hayden all were fantastic! The only bad thing about yesterday's game was the usual Channel 9 biased commentary.

Btw, if the Indians don't want Laxman in ODI games, we'll have him :)

Made a pretty decent debut. Good on him!

I know the commentary on Channel 9 just keeps on getting more hilarious every day! Fab (and James hehe) did you see when they were going on about how Laxman had scored 22 singles in a row, wasn't hitting any boundaries because he wasnt comfortable going over the top and saying how he didn't have the ability to start slogging when needed, even though he kept the run rate at 6 an over! but oh no when the Australians did the same thing, it was just 'convenient' for them to take a single every ball and they didn't have to worry about boundaries too much!

Would you belve it they are not the most biased in the world. Jim Maxwell is. That... person... said that they should put Mcgrath in at number 5 against Bangladesh so that he can score a half century... I know we are bad... but not THAT bad!!!
