Round one wrap:
The first round of the season saw a few happenings and the most regular of these most probably the Dolphins not getting result out of the two games. The Titans winning their first game with a bonus point and then losing their 2nd, handing the opposition a bonus point just shows this season is gonna be exciting. The highlight of the first round has to go to the Cobras innings of putting up a score of 379 in their 50 overs against the Lions team. In this game Cobras opener Richard Levi scored 110 runs from 57 balls, scoring the fastest 100(53) in the SA domestic OD competitions.

AB de Viliers became the first batsmen given out for obstructing the field when Ryan Mclaren tried to throw down the stumps an AB came into the line of the ball.

After the first round of games the Cobras and Warriors are ahead on 6 points with the Knights and Titans following on 5 points each. The Dolphins are next on the log with 4 points from their two rained out games, with the Lions not so hot on their heals with 0 points.

The SW SB round one top 5 contenders:

  • Yep let’s see if the Dolphins can actually get to play a game.

    I don’t like this obstruction rule one bit. Instead of aiming for the stumps you can just try and hit the batsmen and then appeal.

  • This morning I heard Pollock speak on ECR and saying that’s of his opinion that a player like Levi should have been given a chance even before the WC and players like Smith that’s not performing should be dropped..

  • @BR (Comment 2) : But how would they know the ball would have hit the stumps? I think its a bit unfair to be given out in this manner. That’s what I’m saying. As soon as the batsman looks like he is covering his stumps you just have to through the ball against him. Irrelative of whether the ball would have hit the stumps. This rule causes unnecessary confusion. I don’t like it.

  • @Ben (Comment 5) : with the old rule, the umpires had to be certain the ball would have hit the wickets directly, this meaning if the ball would have reached the wickets if it weren’t obstructed and there were a fielder in with a shout for a run out if the ball would have reached him it was tough luck for the fielder,that is also unfair, the new rule just consider the fielder at the stumps who might have had a oppertunity for a run out, remember most run outs are not from direct hits

  • @BR (Comment 6) : also it is normally batsmen that are unsure if they are going to make their ground that changes the line they are running.

    I am happy with the change but it is probally going to bite me in the ass with a crucial decision going against the dolphins in a important match.

  • @BR (Comment 6) : @BR (Comment 7) : I’m telling you now fielders are going to take liberties with this new law and hit the batsman on purpose instead of aiming for the stumps whenever they get a chance.

  • @Ben (Comment 8) : then you as a batsmen must just hold your line and if they throw you deliberately you pick up a couple of penalty runs along the way, they have so much padding it’s not like it is going to hurt

  • @BR (Comment 11) : I did not see the incident with AB in the Titans game but apparently that was controversial.. Saying he did not deter from his line but was still given out… Its now a case of was that a straight line of running or not…

  • Steyn gets Ponting!

    16.2
    Steyn to Ponting, OUT, he has Ponting in trouble now, there’s half an appeal for lbw and they are considering a review. Yeah, we have the first review of the series. Steyn makes him play now, full ball angling in towards the middle and leg line. Ponting thrusts the front pad well across, as his wont, and then has to play around it with the ball straightening a degree down the line. No inside edge on that. This is touble for the Punter. It’s hit him on the front pad as the bat scissors down and hits the pad. The ball heads on unimpeded into the pads, and that’s super adjacent. Ponting is on his way. Steyn 1, Ponting 0.
    RT Ponting lbw b Steyn 8 (51m 25b 0×4 1×6) SR: 32.00

    I think its safe to just say WHAT A JOKE THE GAME OF CRICKET HAS BECOME.

    Suspend the groundsman for at least 5 years, that seems the norm for suspensions handed out today. Maybe he can busy himself with woodwork.

    I believe this is the first test match played at Newlands in early November in 60 years.
    Do you think that could be one of the reasons the grounds man has struggled to prepare a decent wicket??
