    Yep, Clarke is awesome. Should make great captaincy material in terms of good conduct.

    Dar has always hated Australia and given us bad calls. He's obviously biased and dare I say it racist.

    What he did today offended poor Ricky's honour, and that of the entire nation. It will be a good day when Dar no longer umpires.

    Etc etc.

    Had a stiffled but genuine lol at that.

    Don't want to be a brown nose, but think the crim fraternity on here have been very (dare one say remarkably) even handed in their assessments of the incident.

    I want to know what he said tbh. But if, as is most likely, he was dissenting, then depending what his record is like, he'd have to get a suspended sentence at least.

    I mean, he has a right as captain to question things, but it surely looked OTT from my lounge room.

    The replay I've gotten isn't really good enough quality for me to be definitive - I can't see him [Clarke] saying to Ponting to let it go, but he certainly shakes his head and turns on his heel in a manner which indicates that he, at least, has.

    I think he tells Siddle to go away, though. EDIT: In fact I'm almost certain he does. That's probably what it is.

    If anyone else wants to add their eyes to the mix, I'll pm a link.

    Agree. I have to say I have a teeny bit of sympathy with the view that it shows how much Ponting cares.

    I have no idea what Ponting is saying, by the way. But it looks to me like he's arguing about what the replays show, which is in itself bizarre.

    Headline on Cricinfo says Ponting has been fined, but it links to the earlier story. More shortly, I'd imagine.

    Oh yes, but I wasn't comparing Dar with Rana, more Ponting with Gatting. Times have changed and all that, but I don't like the idea that Ponting could be let off here as it will only encourage other players to surround the umpire in a football style.

    Certainly Siddle was in there because he cares. It was extremely odd and interesting to see, and it adds to a line of thought that I'm developing (but won't post here)
