Oooh didn't know it was on a free to air channel, will check it out when I get chance. I've heard a lot of people don't want to play in the final as it's in Lahore.

I didn't know about Lahore so I read up on it and seen all the foreign guys are pulling out on safety fears.

Not surprised as I read one report that 130 died in a terrorist attack there recently, so it's just not worth it.

Karachi didn't many over 120 earlier but bowled out their opponents for 80 odd so my usual T20 bet of back whoever Christopher Henry Gayle is playing for paid even though he wasn't too good LOL

Don't blame them with all the terroist attacks happening lately in Lahore, but hope one day it's safe to tour the country again because it's had some great matches over the years like when we won there in the dark under Nasser.

Karachi Kings play again tomorrow at 4 pm so i'll be backing them to win as per usual.

Better value than backing England at 2/5 play a piss poor Windies team.,

Then they go an do an England LOL

Some new laws have been passed Adders, what's your views on them?

Quote Cricket will introduce sendings-off, award penalty runs for poor behaviour and limit bat sizes after lawmakers the MCC approved the changes.

Player offences will be measured across four levels and punishments range from giving away five runs to being dismissed temporarily or permanently.

Batsmen will also now not be run out if their bat loses contact with the ground after being grounded behind the crease.

The new laws will come into effect from 1 October, 2017.

MCC (the Marylebone Cricket Club) is the guardian of the laws and spirit of the game, and has a world cricket committee - established in 2006 - of 12 current and former top international players which made its recommendations last December.

This is the first time a new code of laws has been written since 2000.

The mode of dismissal of a bowler running out a batsman at the non-striker's end has also been changed.

Bowlers will now be able to perform the run-out "to the instant when the bowler would normally have been expected to release the ball", rather than before entering his or her delivery stride, as was the previous rule.

When would players be ejected?

Offences and punishments include:

Level 1

  • excessive appealing
  • showing dissent at an umpire's decision
  • Punishment - following an official warning, a second offence will result in five penalty runs being conceded

Level 2

  • throwing the ball at a player
  • making deliberate physical contact with an opponent
  • Punishment - five penalty runs being conceded

Level 3

  • intimidating an umpire
  • threatening to assault another player, team official or spectator
  • Punishment - five penalty runs being conceded and the removal of the offending player for a set number of overs

Level 4

  • threatening an umpire
  • any other act of violence on the field of play
  • Punishment - the removal of the offending player for the remainder of the match

"We felt the time had come to introduce sanctions for poor player behaviour and research told us that a growing number of umpires at grassroots level were leaving the game because of it," MCC head of cricket John Stephenson said.

Bat edges and depths to be limited

Following much debate in the past few years over bat sizes, and a call for restrictions from the International Cricket Council in June, specific size limitations to the edge and depth of bats will be added to the laws as the committee believes "the balance of the game has tilted too far in the batsman's favour" - with some mis-hit shots clearing the boundary for six.

Bat edges will have a maximum allowance of 40mm and bat depths must not exceed 67mm (60mm plus an allowance of 7mm for a possible curve on the face of the bat) and the width can be up to 108mm.

"The bat size issue has been heavily scrutinised and discussed in recent years. We believe the maximum dimensions we have set will help redress the balance between bat and ball, while still allowing the explosive, big hitting we all enjoy," Stephenson said.

While a bat gauge will be used to enforce the new restriction in the professional game, a moratorium will allow amateur players to continue to use their existing bats which may be in breach of the new law.

Bat sizes don't care and sledging is part of the game so don't want to see an end to it.

Going after the wrong stuff. They should be going after poor over rates from teams that rob the paying public of the 90 overs they have paid their ticket to see.

If at close of play they haven't got through 90 overs they should continue until they have even if it means less rest time between the end of one day and the start of the next.

5 penalties runs per over not completed during a full days play could help quicken them up haha.

Last season Middlesex won it. But that was because Middlesex legend Andrew Strauss let Finn play against us but banned Root, Bairstow and Rashid playing against them in blatant favouritsm that shouldn't have been allowed.

I can't say i'm too impressed with the North line up. I do like the Curran brothers for Surrey though in the South.

If both line ups were full strength and played a test match against eachother North would win by an innings with Root, Stokes, Bairstow, Anderson, Broad etc.
