might have been going down?

doubt it would have hit a second set of stumps....look at the angle it was bowled at.
One thing that you can look at when watching cricket on TV is the umpires ,
When they look at there performance this morning how can they go back out and have confidence in there decisions ,but the players who were given out cannot say a word .

Or on the umpire's personal radar by the look of it
3 absolute shockers by the umpires. Root did not help himself though by walking. To much of a gentleman I suppose.

We could have predicted a Root low score, it always seems to happen after months of inactivity in "proper cricket" by returning test players.

EDIT -- the last time Root played for us after a long winter break was against Middlesex in April 2014 and on that occasion he got a 5 ball duck.

Pretty sure the Root one was out, the 'bounce' you see is an optical illusion - Wessels had his fingers under the ball. Still unlucky with the two lbws.

Raining at Trent Bridge now.

If Root, having turned and watched the catch being pouched, gave himself out, then surely it's a bit harsh to blame the umpires?

Both LBW decisions were shocking though and I'm rather surprised that Sky's "experts" were so muted in their criticism.

Well i just rather enjoy the irony of it all.
Sky turn up hoping to see Root bat and Broad bowl - instead of which they get brilliant performances from County stalwarts like Alex Lees and Jake Ball - that truly is the magic of County Cricket..

Really enjoyed the morning session but a little frustrating to hear about the dodgy LBW decisions.
To the naked eye from the upper tier of the Radcliffe Road stand I thought the ball didnt quite carry for the Root dismissal.
Game finely posed so sad the weather has spoiled it.
After stopping & looking brighter it is raining cats and dogs now. Early tea being taken but wouldnt put any money on any more play today.

Hope that Broad does not join the party if they get back on, or we could well end up losing this match.
