so we got the 3 you mentioned plus -

bowled
caught
lbw
run out
stumped
handling the ball
hit wicket

never heard of timed out (i assume that is where you take too long to come out to bat)
double hit (self explanitory , but never heard of it)
obstructing the fielders (now that you mention it yes , but never seen it enacted upon)

thanks GG , that may come in use for future trivia nights at the pub ;)

Yeah timed out is taking to long to come out to bat. Can't imagine its a very common way of getting out unless you need the loo and get called while you are there! ;) Dunno how much time you have though...

Rather ironic that a batsman could be out for having "the runs" :sneaky2:

it will be a cracking series for sure !!! i don't think we are really strugglin as much as some think . south africa played very well . in the 2nd test we had em 6 or 7 for 160 ish . then dumminy and steyn batted the innings of their lives and ended up with a lead on us . we had two players playin with injuries (symonds and lee) we also had two of our more reliable players suffer a massive drop in form (hayden and hussey)

bring on the ashes ... i can't f***ing wait !!! :clap:

fair point mate , they did beat us the last time we were over there and we would have had an arguably better team then .

If Glenn McGrath had been able to play in that match then Australia would have retained the "Ashes" they lost by just one run and by the way that McGrath blew England away at Lords it's impossible not to conclude that his presence would have meant much more than just one run.
