Amazing display of fast bowling by Stuart Broad today. Looks like being dropped from the one day team has given him the kick up the backside he needed....

Vic Marks “Bell is culpable as he should not have just walked off the pitch on the assumption that the ball had gone for four, you play safe and have to get in your ground. However, you’ve got to have some sympathy for Bell. He must have assumed the ball had gone for four.”

Question

Strangest thing I've ever seen. When was this retrospective morality clause introduced?

I think it's called good sportsmanship... Full credit to MS Dhoni, he would have been well within his rights technically to have the decision stand but made the right call. Worth remembering that a couple of years ago iirc we had a similar controversy against New Zealand and refused to withdraw the appeal.....

Funny you mention that, they just this minute showed that.

Collingwood was bang out of order IMO that day, thank God his days look numbered masquerading as an 'international' cricketer.

So all appeals can be subsequently withdrawn and the officials have no say in the matter? In that case I'm going to find that bloke from Ormskirk and if he takes back his extremely dubious lbw from the last match of 1976 I'll be top of the school batting averages. I'm sure Don Bradman's descendents might like to have his last test dismissal reconsidered too.
