SPIRIT OF THE GAME: The BBC's Ben Dirs wrote there has been much talk about "the spirit of the game" since the first Ashes Test at Trent Bridge.

Technology, and the DRS, "which took centre stage in Nottingham last week, was introduced because we live in a scientific age." And once cricket "conceded that we live in a scientific age then any talk of spirits started to sound wilfully old-fashioned." At "least to some" (BBC, 7/16).
