    Alrighty non-cricketers here's a non-smartass explanation of that very crickety title

    "Upper Cut" refers to a shot where you hit the ball in the air over the wicket-keeper (our version of the catcher)'s head where there is never any fielders. It is a very unconventional shot that very few batsmen play in any kind of cricket.

    A "half volley" is a delivery (pitch) that bounces quite close to the batsmen and is normally hit in front of them, in about the same sort of area as a legal delivery in baseball. That means that the shot he played (the uppercut) is even more outrageous because he should have played this forwards.

    "Leg Stump" is one of the three stumps on either side of the middle one (those wooden white sticks in the ground), it's either side depending on the handedness of the batsmen, in this case he's a right hander so it's on the camera's side of the middle stump. The "uppercut" is even more difficult to play when the bowl is directed to that stump because your body is in the way, hence why he's fallen backwards to play the shot.

    "third man" is a fielding position about where third base in baseball would be if you flipped the field in the opposite direction behind the stumps.

    "for 6" is our equivalent to a home run, where the ball clears the boundary on the full, and is worth 6 runs

    4th Ashes test is just the 4th match in a 5 test series of the oldest rivalry in world sport.

    FOR MORE CONTEXT:

    The guy batting is essentially solo carrying Australia. He's averaging 134 runs, the next best is an English player averaging 59 (most very good cricketers average 45-50 over their careers), and everyone else except one dude have been atrocious for Australia. He's completely dominated every time he's batted, however he's mostly been very patient and precise with his batting.

    Yesterday Australia needed runs quickly to try and win the game so he started trying to bat very aggressively and still spanked England around. He's also just come back from a match off due to a concussion he got in the second test match.

    Liberty head coach Hugh Freeze will work from a hospital bed in the coach's booth tonight, per LU Athletics.

    Freeze's staph infection is gone, but he's only two weeks into a 4-6 week recovery from surgery. He's most comfortable when reclined and plans to fly to ULL next week.

    I have no clue about American football but I've seen Wade play rugby plenty of times. He was always a quality attacking player but lacked a bit defensively and under the high ball which seemed to stop him from ever breaking into the England side fully. Not sure how much those skills will impact him in American football but I hope he does well.

  • OhNo_a_DO

    From this one clip, how good does he perform vs your expectations of an outstanding football player?

    What does he do well?What is unexpected?Are there any negatives?

  • RTRonan

    Good for him.

  • urbanek2525
    7 points Aug 09,2019, 10:45am

    Rugby players need vision and a sick ability to cut and that's what he did.

    At least he didn't follow his instincts and ground the ball in the end-zone.

    A pretty good English born rugby player at that!

    Wade is the joint 3rd all time try scorer in the English Premiership. Had he not moved sports he would have likely ended up breaking the record by some margin as he is considerably younger than those ahead of him.

    Unfortunately, while a prolific try-scorer, other areas of his game were not considered strong enough for him to play for England more than a handful of times, which I suspect is why he decided to switch sports.

    Congrats to him though, that’s awesome. I’m not bitter, just jelly.

    What stood out to me was how he actually held the ball while running full speed. It seemed to be particularly high and moved very little compared to what I'm used to seeing in football. Maybe my imagination?
