Venkataraghavan was one umpire but he rightly retired when he couldn't see or hear as well as he used to, unlike Bucknor.

Meanwhile, some fans are asking why the SCG cannot be called Sachin Cricket Ground.:D

I believe Bucknor and the other umpire have been in the road 4 months straight.

The ICC is to blame for sending tired umpires. They should have more on their payroll. What's Billy Bowden doing? We think he is the best.

Bloke goes to a doctor and says, "There is a cricket ball in my arse."

"How's that?" asks the doctor.

"Now don't you start," says the bloke.

By some accounts, Symonds said something rude about the Indian's sexual preferences and Harbhajan responded in kind, stinging the Australian with a mix of Punjabi and English.



That's no monkey!

At Perth, India 297/6 at stumps. Bad show.:(

I expected Tait to get wickets.:wonder:

Umpire Billy Bowden turned down a loud appeal from Mitchell Johnson, when he yorked Rahul Dravid, and a small section of the crowd responded with, "We want Bucknor, we want Bucknor".



Gentlemen Aussies. :devil:

We may lose the series but we have won one match against the "invincible" Ausssies.

Time to get drunk and dance.

Sachin gets 39th ton.

Meanwhile, the latest SMS joke doing the rounds in India is that monkeys in the Mumbai zoo refused all food because some tourists called them "Symonds.":cheers:

Do you all know this little parody of Emerson by A. Lang?


** BRAHMA **

If the wild bowler thinks he bowls,
Or if the batsman thinks he's bowled,
They know not, poor misguided souls,
They, too, shall perish unconsoled.
I am the batsman and the bat,
I am the bowler and the ball,
The umpire, the pavillion cat,
The roller, pitch, and stumps, and all.

The reason is that the last two pitches (WACA and Adelaide) have been prepared atrociously. The Adeliade pitch already favours batsmen and breaks up on day 4/5. But this time in they have made it impossible not to get a big score.

Today's papers are all about tributes to Gilly--the greatest wicketkeeper batsman of all time and an Aussie with a big heart. India will never forget the tsunami relief work that Gilly did for us.

As Steve Waugh pointed out, he is a once-in-a-generation player and we are privileged to have seen him play.:cheers:

Sydney: Australians were shocked Wednesday when their head of state broke protocol to criticise the world-champion cricket team for verbally abusing its opponents.

Governor General Michael Jeffery, the queen's representative in Australia, joined in the intense public disquiet over the arrogance and loutish behaviour on display in the just-concluded four-match Test series against India.

"Their example is absolutely critical to the well-being of cricket and sportsmanship in this country," Jeffrey said. "While we should be playing the game tough and hard and all of that sort of thing, I think there's also a need to really take care of the fundamental courtesies and good manners."

In a rare, perhaps unprecedented rebuke, the governor-general described as "totally un-Australian" trying to unnerve opponents through insults and snide remarks - a practice that Australian players call "sledging", and which they claim to have perfected as a way of inducing "mental disintegration" in their opponents.

Sledging has the tacit support of their cricketing authority, Cricket Australia.

"I think there have been times in recent years where it's obvious that things (have deteriorated)," the retired army general said. "Questioning umpires' decisions, not walking, sledging - which I'm totally against in a vicious sense."

He said the behaviour of the home team at the conclusion of the Sydney Test, which gave Australia a 2-0 advantage in the series, had been a "wake-up call" for a return to sportsmanship on the field.

Captain Ricky Ponting and his team failed to shake hands with the Indian players after winning the Sydney Test, and his players stayed at the crease when they knew they were out and claimed catches they knew were not properly taken.

A front-page article in the top-circulation daily called for Ponting to be sacked for a win-at-all-costs attitude that had brought shame on his country.

Indian cricket commentator Harsha Bogle called for sledging to be outlawed and for Cricket Australia to declare it outside the spirit of the game. Arjuna Ranatunga, a former Sri Lankan captain and chairman of Sri Lanka Cricket, has also called for a ban on sledging, saying that players "should stop all shouting in the grounds".


Gawd bless da Queen. :devil:

It is all over the news and the whole nation is laughing. The actual Hindi word is out in the vernacular press.

When the Counsel for the Australian players asked Harbhajan what he had said, Harbhajan said "I admit I abused Symonds and said m- - - - (an abusive word in Hindi).

The Indian officials at the hearing burst out laughing when Harbhajan disclosed the word.


The actual word is "maadarchod" which translates into "motherf/ucker."

Racist?:scrollhah :scrollhah :scrollhah :scrollhah
