I have had enough of the game of cricket, specially involving the Australian cricket team. First it was the racial accusations made by the Australian cricket team while they were touring the sub-continent.
I have seen the so called “racial monkey taunts” made by the the crowds at Vadodra and Wankhede stadium in India. In my opinion it was meant to be a humorous joke just making a comparison to how Andrew Symonds stands out amongst his own team mates. I mean look at him when he has the white sun screen protection on his lips and his fluffy hair to go with it. He looks more like a clown than a Monkey. And if you call me a racist after this comment I made, then go to hell.
Akhil Tandulwadikar’s comment on Andrew Symonds hair would explain what this “monkey chants” are all about.
Therefore, it has led me to conclude that the only possible rational explanation to these monkey chants lies somewhere else. Something that the mediaâ€“in Australia and Indiaâ€“has totally missed in its hurry to earn some TRP
And then we have Australia chasing a record 16 test win in a row at the SCG this year. It is definately the worst game of cricket I have seen. The way the Australian team appealed for Dravid’s wicket in the second innings was just embarrassing. You can’t call any Australian player a gentleman after this test match. They play the game just to get a record in their name. Cricket is a gentleman’s game. A fine example was when Yuvraj Singh “walked” after he realised he nicked the ball.
At an interview, the Indian Captain was asked if he thought the match had been played in the right spirit, Kumble said, â€œOnly one team was playing in the spirit of the game.â€ It was reminiscent of Australian captain Bill Woodfullâ€™s words during the Bodyline series. Shame on you Australia.
And finally to prove how bad the game of cricket has become, which included few poor umpiring decisions and a some embarrassing cricket played by the Australian team. This is how they won the second test match:
Ruled in favour of Aus:
1. Andrew Symonds caught on 30
2. Ponting caught on 15
3. Andrew Symonds stumped on 48
4. Andrew Symonds lbw on 103
5. Andres Symonds stumped on 140 (not even reffered to third umpire).
6. Hussey plumb lbw on the back foot in the second innings.
7. Hussey caught down the leg side by the keeper.
8. This could have gone either way… Kumble’s hatrick ball to Symonds.
9. Dravid caught a padded shot by the keepoer and appealed for wicket (most
10) Gangully caught by Clarke, clearly on the half volley and the umpire asked
Ponting if he caught it. Why woudn’t Ponting say “yes” to that?
Ruled in favor of India
1. Ricky ponting inside edge given lbw on 55.
2. This could have gone either way… Sachin LBW when on 48.
This is not cricket. Oh by the way, I am an Indian born Australian citizen. I am not making any biased comments because I am Indian. In fact I loved how the Australians played their cricket, until what I saw unfolding at the SCG.
Now for those who came looking for the twenty20 ticket I am offering,
shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and if you are lucky, you can enjoy some more embarrassing cricket played by the Australian team at the MCG. they have been sold.
And here is what some others have to say:
- No room for cheeky monkeys
- Australia’s attitude lacking in appeal
- Dodgy deeds leave sour taste
- Arrogant Ponting must be fired
- It’s just not cricket!
- Another hollow victory for Australian cricket
- Victory without honour: walk the walk, watch the talk
- Why Ponting’s heroes just don’t appeal to me
