It was certainly a far more difficult decision for the umpire than the non run-out (by yards) of John Dyson at Sydney in 1982/3, which went a long way towards Australia setting up the draw that secured them the Ashes. Hey, it's cricket, them's the breaks.

It really makes no sense at all but the selectors may have got away with it through Buttler's contributions with the bat from that position, fortunate though much of his time at the crease has been.

I lost count of the number of times he played and missed outside the off stump in the last test.

Something on which we may agree. Please don't stop.

For "different", I'm sure anyone with an objective approach to the incidents would read "better".

I can't fault your persistence in the face of lost causes, though.

Well at least you’re being consistent in cutting out the substance of the argument and not responding to it, presumably because it’s too complicated for you.

I know but I regard you as a sort of charity case (the willfully blind) so I do try to clarify things for you.

Or, typically, a little elusive.

Thanks, particularly given the lateness of the hour.

Not one of those who say that charity begins at home then? I dare say there'd be little left for anyone else were that the case.
