    To those going to the charity match

    As you know Murali has been picked to play in the charity match next monday at the MCG. Many of us, myself included, regularly abuse him and were looking foward to his return to the G so that we could abuse him some more. However given the circumstances of this match and what he and his country have been through I think it is right that no-one calls Murali a chucker or boos him during this match. If we can control ourselves for one game then the cricketing world will think better of us.

    There'll still be plenty of p1ssants who're gonna no-ball him while he's bowling.

    He's a strong character so it shouldn't bother him, it won't reflect on Australia too well as a whole but nothing that can be stopped unfortunately.

    Amusing to see the list of players on Channel 9 for the Asia XI.
    Zaheer Khan was listed as a Pakistani!

    might be making the trip down, biggest problem is the day its falling on, we'll see, as for the mutali thing, normally id prolly be booing him and hurling abuse, however this time i think its probably out of the question...

    That's debateable seeing as he pulled out of the last tour.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    I think this match being organised by ICC and the proceeds being in aid of the Tsunami relief, he would be more than ever motivated to be there .

    I am certain he will be there for those two reasons above as well as the fact that it's an honour to be asked to represent your continent against a World XI .
