    CricketWimb. Yesterday, Roy opened but didn't field. Yet earlier in the CWC, when

    fielded first and two went off injured, they weren't allowed to bat below 7 or something.

    Have I got this wrong?

    It can't be fair that the toss gives you such an advantage.

    He didn't field because he got hit on the arm while batting - as an external injury

    it doesn't affect whether you can use a replacement or the batting order. Similarly Rahul didn't field for most of the England innings (allowing India's best fielder to come on as a replacement). But as it was ruled an external injury he was allowed to open the batting - not that it did him much good

    So you would force Roy to field with an injury sustained while he was batting? That seems fair.

    Cheers, la.

    1. Then why did we have that game where Woakes came in at 3 or whatever? Our injuries in the field meant one slogger (Morgan??) couldn't bat below 7 while another had to wait a certain number of overs, I think.

    2. Can a sub fielder go in the slips or other specialist position? If Root had "picked up an external injury" we might have got Sharma out for 90 less runs.

    2) Sub can go anywhere I think. Possibly needs umpire/ref approval if wicketkeeper

    needs changing.

    1 - the injuries were hamstring and back spasm - internal (and pre-existing conditions which also is factor in these things). Depends on the amount of time off the field as well. Anyway, neither Morgan or Roy were fit to bat in that innings. Woakes is a legend

    It was a fortunate injury, though, r.

    An injury is an injury, LA. I hope you're not suggesting that a batsman might exaggerate a new injury in order to rest an existing injury by not having to field?
