India’s Punga With Australia

Written by Commoner on January 9th, 2008   (552 views)

It’s another thing to harass the poor Bengalis and submissive Lankans, and it’s quite another ballgame to get entangle with the Australians. Indian crowd is notorious for racial chants against the guest teams, and they often torch the stadium if their team starts losing the match. They are the most hostile crowd in the Cricket arena. They would cheer like hell if Sachin hits a boundary, and there would be pin drop silence if Sachin gets caught beautifully in the slips or any opponent batsman smashes a sixer.

Nowadays, Indians are tasting their own medicine in Australia. Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh called Aussie player “Monkey”, and Symonds didn’t like the title that much. He whined in front of his captain Ricky Ponting, who in return complained to ground umpires, who forwarded the case to match referee, who slapped a 3-test match’s ban with relish. Mike Procter, the match referee, ruled at the end of a four-hour hearing that Harbhajan had breached Level 3 of the ICC’s Code of Conduct.

Anil Kumble, the Indian skipper says that Australia played outside the spirit of the game, while Ponting is confident that they played with all the fairness and hard work in the world. Ponting was also pained at the situation, and was of the opinion that Indian should focus in tackling Aussie storm, instead of making excuses and taunting the baggy greens.

Indians are ill at ease with everything happening in Australia right now. They are not liking the umpiring, the Aussie players, the Kangaroo media, the weather, the umpiring, and the are especially fed up with the Steve Bucknor, and demanding that he shouldn’t be officiating in the Perth test.

Things are quite interesting in that part of the world nowadays.

      didnt actually saw the complete match.
      its not his fault.
      just like steve buckner.
      buckner is going old now he cannot see and concentrate properly so if he gives a wrong decision its not his fault.
      and also there is one more problem that crowd of oher teams is not patrioic they would always be silent. weather their team wins or not, Unlike INDIAN crowd.
      with this match australians proved that they can do anythng to win, they have forgotten the genelmen game.

      @Fahd Mirza ….who asked u to write this article ….first commenting on other try to be non-biased…u pointing toward indian crowd..it was ur crowd which ran in to ground when india was winning some yr before…… it was ur captain banned for 5 match by Mike Prockter for not showing game sprit…… Ausssies always take some wrong to break the sprit of apponent team…whether its India. Srilanka…..people taking Bucnor desision as human fault…. i think a peron who can give 10 bad dessision in a match against a team should retire…….
