    Yes, there's been some rotten weather today. Hammered it down this morning and intermittent hail showers this afternoon.

    It's 'orrible round here. Hailstorm right now. I'd be surprised if there's any more play.

    Jofra Archer begins his 50-over England career with two maidens and a wicket. He should be playing for West Indies for my money but he ain't half menacing. Can see him playing all five Ashes Tests as the Pietersen-2005 figure in the team.

    Good game, with a good partnership between Foakes and Tom Curran seeing England home.

    Such a frisson of excitement hearing Ian Bell in the commentary box. Get him out there for the Tests, he could still do a job at number five!!! No, wait, listen...

    England looking a bit wobbly.

    Sorry, my error. The ball is dead as soon as the wide is called so the stumping does not count and the batting side wins by one wicket.

    Even though the ball passed the stumps in a wide position before the stumps were broken?

    The match is a tie with ten wickets down. The ball is dead when the stumps are broken so no run.

    Well, I never knew that you could be stumped off a wide...

    What happens if scores are tied and it's the last wicket that goes like that? Do you get the run, or the wicket, or both?

    The Ireland-England ODI finally gets underway. Who'd've thought that early May in Dublin could be a bit soggy...

    I'm in broad agreement. Although "until the ball is delivered" these days might need to be "until you'd expect the ball to be delivered". The non-striker these days is busy watching the line so they can give a reasoned opinion on any DRS referral that they can't be expected to be watching the bowlers arm for the actual release. Which means that to me, an interrupted run-up that waits for the non-striker to get out of their ground would still seem unsporting.

    I'm actively in favour of Mankading too. It's enough of a batsman's game as it is without giving them carte blanche to scamper down the pitch to steal a run at will. And when I were a lad, one of the first things I was told by coaches was to keep your bat grounded at the non-striker's end until the ball's delivered.

    And now the MCC has reversed course; they say Butler was in his ground when he could reasonably have expected the ball to be delivered, and that he was only outside it due to Ashwin delaying taking the bails off. Therefore Ashwin's actions went against the Spirit of the Game.

    It does make them sound as if the come from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. I wonder if Peter Jones did an earlier version?

    The law seems fine as it stands. It was pretty touch-and-go whether Ashwin had delayed and Butler was simply trying to sync his amble forwards with the expected delivery. Either way, it didn't look like egregious backing up against the spirit of the laws. More like dozily being out of his ground.

    MCC have made a statement. Seems reasonable. For some reason I thought the ICC were in charge of the Laws now.

    Especially in 20/20. If the batsman leaves his crease he's trying to gain an advantage, and the bowler has every right to stop him doing so.

    Yeah, if the batsman isn't trying to gain an advantage by leaving the crease then he can't be put out.

    Sporting, they removed the part about the bowler not being able to interrupt their delivery stride a couple of years ago.

    It all feels a bit of a hang over from gentlemen batsmen and player bowlers to me.

    Edit: Buttler just wasn't paying enough attention.

    But hadn't the bowler interrupted his own run-up? Not sure, just asking.

    Yes it's up to the batsman to stay in the crease imo
