    Khwaja was not out. No hotspot, no snicko, but given out.

    Absolute mockery of technology.

    When other teams 'cheat' and 'tamper with the ball', their media goes absolutely berserk.
    When their team tampers with the ball they are simply 'skilled' to make the ball reverse earlier than normal.
    Some massive double standards.

    Khawaja was unlucky to be given as he also delayed in the review which should've been instant. But would've been given still knowing how it's like.

    Pakistani's. Never get their way with umpires even when playing for a different country.

    Not to mention the official requests for clarifications from ICC and DRS people... England make it very easy for neutral fans to dislike them.

    Absolute shocker.

    What's the point of technology when you give that out? Disgusting decision.

    Like Indians who only cherish their ICC tournaments, England fans cherish the Ashes (Tests). Now I do not think there is anything wrong in this per se, but it does mean said supporters have a blinkered view of Cricket in general.

    I told an English fan at work that Jimmy is an ok bowler, presented the stats etc, and said that Jimmy is only effective when there is cloud cover.

    He told me he didn't want to speak to me about cricket anymore.

    Anderson will be and will only be a good bowler not a great or best as the English media and some others say.

    To be fair to England Bob Wilis is never one to bite his tongue. He will call out all teams and incidents equally and he was fair with his criticism of the umpiring today, in particular the Khwaja incident.

    One of the better pundits.
