Completely ridiculous and pointless try by Pattinson to peg the ball again at Hughes’ stumps. I hope the match referee sanctions him for that pathetic act.

I am a Victorian fan however Hughes by no means left his crease. Very poor cricket from Patto. That is the kind of throw that deserves to overlook the batsman, hit the stumps and go away for 4 over-throws.

That is an intentional throw there
