I already discussed about Hansie in a thread " Worst higher level cricket relating decisions" . He didnt deserve to be kicked like that. I guess Salim Malik and Wasim were also doing fixing and not only them but also some Australians but wont name them cuz they are gonna fill up the thread with bulls. Wasims brother knew that Pakistan is gonna be beaten by Bangladesh . Actually Hansie did nothing very very wrong , he didnt know how to handle that particular situation.
Yes, its very sad that SA doesn't have Hansie right now. Because with the forms some the players are in (Gibbs, Smith, Pollock's consistency, Ntini) Hansie would definitely have brought the Proteas very very very close to the Aussies.
And yeah, by the way it's Sudeep. Don't worry though, most people make that mistake.
