Yes,

the Governor General is the Queen's Representative in Australia. Since he is the Queen's Representative and he was referring to his cricket team, I take it he was talking about the English cricket team.

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

Racist?:scrollhah :scrollhah :scrollhah :scrollhah



Too bad Harbhajan didn't mention it to the umpires at that time. Or to Symonds when Symonds immediately said "Thats the second time you have called me a monkey". Or in reply to Hayden when he spoke to him moments after. It also a shame he didn't mention it to the Procter inquiry. What a shame he didn't mention until after he had had a long chat with his lawyers and bought it up to Indian officials.

I suppose its a matter of what you believe.

That guy isn't fluent in English. The full sentence which led to the misunderstanding is "maadarchod, tere maa ki..."

"Maa ki" is a corruption of "mother's c/unt" and I admit that it does sound like "monkey" to someone who doesn't know the language.

Add to that the fact that he is a Sikh or what we locals call a sardarji. These people are not known to be exactly bright in India, and we have countless "sardarji jokes" about them. Type out "sardarji jokes" in Google and see how many hits you get. Indian Sikh males are the equivalent of Caucasian blonde females. Dumb. Most of them join the army.

The easiest way to get under a sardarji's skin is not by chanting "Harbhajan is a wanker" from the stands because he wont know what a "wanker" is.

Call him "Baaraa Bajay" (meaning 12 o'clock) and see what happens.;)

He'll go crazy.

Check out further on Google about why Sikhs dont like to be called "12 o'clock."

:viva:

Believe me, Harbhajan is the sort that worships monkeys, not someone who looks down on them.:)

I saw Harbhajan in an interview before the Test series. It went about 20 minutes. It showed where he lived with his family, his room, a view from the top of his home into the street when he played cricket as a kid. It gave a short bio of how he was the head of the home and the rise of his career.

Throughout the whole interview Harbhajan spoke fluent English.

Harbhajan had a spat with Symonds over Harbhajan hitting Lee on the backside. Symonds initiated that. Then they went to walk away but Harbhajan called him back over to him a monkey. Or what you say he said.

I don't believe that any bilingual person would beckon over a person with the intent to have a go at him and then break into a language the person could not understand.

If he said it when Symonds first had a go at him, it would make sense. If he told Hayden or the umpires at the time, it would lend weight. If he bought it up as a misunderstanding at the Procter hearing it would have some weight. But not wait nearly a week to come up with it.

Anyway, its all done and dusted. Doesn't matter. Only the Symonds and Harbhajan know the truth.

You have to give it to Adam Gilchrist - he does have some sense of timing. In his last innings at the WACA, with Australia under a little bit of pressure half-way through the final edition of the CB Series, Adam Gilchrist and his little squash ball treated an adopted home crowd to a measured hundred that was exactly one half of his side's 236.



Gilly signs off in style.

Thank you, Gilly, for your outstanding contribution to world cricket and your unforgettable work in India after the tsunami hit us.

:cheers: yourock :kowt: :clap: :ghug:

It took a giant step by successfully bidding for Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds for $1.35 million, only the second player to cross the one-million mark individually.

Hayden did not call Cargage-Can an Obnoxious Weed.

He called him a "noxious reed".

And since noxious reeds are regarded as gods (all hail the Reed God!) it was hardly an insult.

If Hayden is charged by the ICC the Australian team have threatened to pull out of the final and fly out on the first available plane.

Gilchrist has threatened to retire if they fine Hayden.

Now that the cricket thread is officially in the Religion Forum (where it ought to have been in the first place), all we have to do is decide who was God.

WG Grace or Don Bradman?

Back to Sports.:Party:

Just moments after what was arguably his finest hour, Mahendra Singh Dhoni made a poignant and deeply symbolic gesture. "Sabse chota kaun hai?" (Who's the youngest?) he asked when the team assembled on the podium to pose with the CB Series trophy. Nothing could have summed up India's triumph better, underpinning the value of the untried and untested. The sight of little Piyush Chawla, the youngest member, holding the trophy aloft captured the theme of the series.


Victory of the lambs (and obnoxious little weeds.):devil:

Didn't the Poms defeat Australia in their last ODI series in Australia in 2006? Yes they did.

After that series, England said it would go on to better and bigger things. A lot of predictions were made that it may be the beginning of the end for Australia and England would be the new number one team.

Kiwis need 196 on the last day with 4 wickets remaining. Looks like England will wrap it up unless Vettori and McCullum work a miracle.
