    Words between Yousuf Youhana n Irfan Pathan

    "Lloyd announced that Yousuf Youhana and Irfan Pathan had also been found guilty of breaching ICC's code of conduct. The two exchanged a few words in the 35th over, for which Youhana was fined 75% of his match fee and Pathan was fined 50%."

    Unfortunately I couldn't see the match. Anyone know what happened? Anything significant or significantly entertaining?

    And Ganguly's banned for two Tests as well - slow over rate.

    This could have been in off-topic. It was no big deal, really

    Youhana isn't Pathan's best friend either...

    They shouldn't have been fined, it was just a bit of banter, like Merv Hughes said thats how the game should be played, with feeling.

    As for Ganguly, i can't understand his supension, surely the reason for the slow rate was mainly down to Salman Butts massive delay when he got injured? Its seems shocking to ban him for two test matches for that

    as pathan walked down the pitch after he bowled he nudged passed youhana and then turned and nudged passed him again, in response youhana replied by tapping him with his bat made the match so much more interesting given the amount of delays
    Best batsman = Rahul Dravid
    Best bowler = Muttiah Muralitharan

    I can't understand this either for the same reason you mentioned. Throw in the ball change delays and you can clearly make the case that India's over-rate wasn't nearly as bad as this suspension makes it look.

    Having said that, the only negative I see out of this is that Dravid's batting may get negatively impacted again as he has to double up as a captain. I don't see Dravid as any worse a captain than Ganguly. Ganguly certainly won't be missed as a middle-order batsman. Kaif is a good replacement.

    that is the harshest suspension if ever there was one! ball having to be wiped every ball, so many ball changes, injured batsman, runner coming on and off etc etc. agree, the match took forever

    i think it may have to do with the fact that ganguls dind't even try to speed up the game. However, i totaly disagree wtih ODI's and test matches being mixed here..if he faulted in an ODI, he should be suspended for 2 odi's not test matches

    2 tests is very harsh as it stands

    Its harsh, but I think he got suspended because its his second time in 12 months. Unfortunate because he misses the whole damn series.

    Dravid will have to captain again, although they are appealing the decision.

    That's interesting. What happened if Ganguly was a ODI player only? Would that mean they would suspend him from 2 tests, but he could play the next ODI? Just say for example Andrew Symonds was captaining Australia in ODIs (example people, quiet) but doesn't play tests. What would happen there? Do they just suspend you from the next international match, or do they look at what you are likely to play in?

    I'm guessing it would be the next games you play in.
    Coming back to Ganguly, its high time somebaody punished him for the over rate; he is almost always over the alloted time. Now that they have gone and done it, I hope the ICC remains consistent.

    Personally I think it's about time they cracked down on these pathetic over rates.

    pathan seems to have a massive ego now.and i'm not the only one that's noticed it

    ego's should not be allowed on a team regardless of how good a player they are

    My comment is going to sound Harsh...but its true that he doesnt have too much a Ego problem...its mostly him being inexperience he is fairly new to indo-pak cricket...so his Emotions are higher than other Indian Players, plus all the hype that he gets from indian media...makes him feel little more of himself than what he actually is.....

    Give him a yr or two and he will realize that In India pak games, he is bound to lose more often than win....this will make him sleep better......and he will be more sensable person like Other Indian greats like Sachin Gavaskar and Kapil.
