    Was watching live. The commentators said the Indian team spent a lot of time practising precisely that catching manouevre to ensure they complied with the rules about keeping their feet from touching the boundary or anywhere beyond whilst in contact with the ball.

    They also pondered how much the catcher was helped by the fact the boundary 'toblerone' was missing at that point. However the video replay suggests the catch would still have been perfectly fine.

    I've seen some breathtaking catches in my time, going all the way back to Tony Lock for Surrey and England in the 1950s, but that one tops the lot.

    It's literally taking over too !!

    I just looked at tickets, it's £30 at Lords and £25 at the Oval, you get a woman's and men's match but its 33 overs or something !!

    T20 is fine.
    Can’t see the point of the 100.

    Agreed, it’s one or the other surely?

    T20 for me all the way.
    I don’t see the 100 surviving but money will call the shot.

    Test is the only one that matters, the rest is glorified beach cricket.

    Now I know it’s the 100 (excuse warning! I’m still resting broken leg in bed)
    WTF is the problem with Lords based cricket teams?
    They are bloody useless.

    Thoughts on The Hundred? seen some comments...

    We know why it came about. ECB wanting a bigger slice of the pie that they were not getting from T20 County games.

    Personally, good to see equal money for women and men's game, but i don't see the necessity of The Hundred. Creating a new version of the sport to make bigger bucks worked for T20 and went internationally, will the BCCI of India or CBA of Australia now go for The Hundred after established T20 programmes? Not sure i see it happening.

    I've only seen one game, but apart from the nomenclature (an over appears to be a set?) and the garish graphics on the screen, I couldn't really see why it wasn't just played as a T20 comp.
