I don't think any company would want to be associated with the f word. (yeah I'm not sure about the courier mail)
The icc will get rich if they fine everyone for saying f@$%!
Maybe he is not getting fined for swearing, but sledging with malicious intent?
But your honour, he was being a good sport, informing Anderson where the next ball would be delivered. If only he could extend the courtesy to all English batsmen.

Yeah I'm confident its the actual threat of a broken arm, and not the swearing (though that doesn't help) which has caused the ICC to intervene, rightly or wrongly.
Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?
With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
At that point it's not longer just an on-field thing that happened. I suppose it's already not just an on-field thing, but Clarke allowing them to pay his fine would add to that.
20% fine is pathetic, either it needs to be 50% or nothing. A small amount like that won't matter to anyone.
Not saying I agree with the fine just it a bit pointless.
1. They can't be seen to be condoning swearing etc publicly.
2. They CBF with the idealogical debate that would happen were a bigger fine to be imposed. A large fine and suddenly we might have to say that anyone who swears on the field is fined X amount or something concrete.
Are these fines even followed through on? I can hardly see the money coming out of Clarke's actual wallet. I'm sure they wouldn't be paid or would be paid by someone else.
