87.3

Krejza to Dhoni, no run, Drama. They appeal for a caught and bowled catch. They reckon it went off the bat and then on to the boot and to Krejza. They have referred it up stairs. and the replays show that it hit the turf before hitting the boot.

Rick Middle: "Johnson's been consistently faster than Lee for the last few matches - time to upgrade Mitch to LF and drop Binger to RFM?" I would think so. One more series of this and that should be done. But can Mitch bring the ball back in to right-hand batsmen by then please?

Jack: "NSW bias? Both Clark and Lee are from NSW. Hilfenhaus (Tas) or Tait (SA) should be in the side to ruffle up a few feathers. There is no way White is a test quality bowler."

Arron: "We should have played Bollinger & Siddle instead of Lee and Clark. At least they would have given there all...Lee looks flat and out of touch."

Nick:"People need to give Lee a break. He was man of the series on two occasions in the last year or so. He is still one of the best fast bowlers in the world, just having a bad series after a long break. Once he gets off these Indian roads, and back to the WACA, he'll be right."
