    What about if Afridi flops, which in all likelihood is what will happen? Afridi is a once-in-a-while character.

    What is the point in the constant analysis of why each player should or shouldn't be in the teams??
    What is so wrong with a bunch of international cricketers having a knockabout for a good cause?

    Sorry back on topic here,

    I'll be very interested to see how the Aussies will be towards Murali. Lets be serious though, if they (the australian crowd) lack the common human decency to no ball the guy during a charity match then I'd say that would speak volumes about Australia, and her people. So quite frankly, let them no ball him.

    They can sit in their ivory towers and pretend that they are psychologically eroding their oposition, it would amuse me to see them use that justification on Monday the 10th.

    Its funny really, India comes to Australia and local newspapers carry stories about how Indians experianced racism and degredation as SPECTATORS and FANS while in Australia.

    Then Australia tours India and the local papers are full of stories discribing the hospitality that the Australian touring parties experianced. Frankly Australia and her supporters will reap what they sow eventually...

    /rant

    Cheers

    Or they complain about the pitches in India then NZ comes and says Aussie has changed the pitch 3 times for the last ODI and they get a all mightly raping by the press.

    Its bloody frustrating thats what it is, I can't tell you the amount of times I've gone to the SCG, MCG or Gabba only to ecounter some moron spewing forth racist garbage at me in retaliation to me celebrating a wicket or good shot. Its like their first line of defence, they seem to think that a lack of control of the english language gives them the ability to insult people based on race, creed, or color, its disgusting.

    I haven't missed an SCG test since I arrived from South Africa in 1997, I attend the test match because I, like the rest of you, love cricket, the contest and all the little qirks that come with it, but last year, I sat behind the Indians, but not in the Indian section. The abuse these poor people had to sit through made my stomach turn, and this is after living in apartheid riden South Africa for 17 years. I've attended matches at Centurion and at the Wanderes never had I seen anything like I saw last year at the SCG, as a cricket fan it was disheartening, as a human being it was truelly depressing.

    Cheers

    A Sri Lankan friend of mine wrote an article after the Lehmann incident called "crisis of racism in Australian cricket".
    I thought it struck a few chords, personally - though of course there are two sides to every story - wish I could find the link.
    Got lost with the English cricket forum, tho.

    Might find that the English language demands a "u" to follow a "q", then.
    Don't take that the wrong way, tho.

    lol, Indeed. When it comes to English, I'm all over the place, Sri Lankan by blood, born and bred in South Africa and now living in Australia, I have a birth right to be misinterpreted. :P

    On a side note, I'd love to have a read of that article, if you do manage to track it down feel free to send it my way:

    I've had a quick Google search - nothing.
    The guy's name is Rishva Weliweta, if that means anything to anyone.

    so if it was any other time u could Abuse him. that says a lot about u
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    I guess there's something to be said for your plea, but you have to realize that the vast bulk (if not all) of the kind of people you're appealing to are bonafide děckheads, and will likely go right ahead with the abuse when Murali comes on. If you find this distasteful, it's called "reaping what you sow".

    I just hope it won't be too loud, so I won't have to cringe too hard in embarassment.
