    Hussain made a very good poitn during commentary. Usually the fielders liked to stay away from such a thing he said as they would have to face the Aussie stick if they came up.On this specific scenario, every one acted as a team. Collingwood came in, Flintoff came in.



    The throw by Jones was unwarranted and not to be condoned by any means ofcourse and the sky commentators saying it was involuntary were speaking hogwash according to me. Hayden had every right to react but he should have simmered down after the apology.

    But the incident brought out the change in the English team more than many others.

    Jones undies for one, did you see his face when he crapped himself as Hayden turned around.

    Sticking for your team mates is no excuse for picking up a fight with a guy who has been wronged. For all the sledging the Aussies get involved in, getting physical is one thing you can never accuse them of. I hope Collingwood wears his diapers next time he walks out to bat.

    Whilst none of the actions of the players in that situation can be condoned (starting with Simon Jones), it is pleasing in some ways to see that England are willing to stick up for each other - this kind of "all-for-one, one-for-all" attitude has been the backbone of some of the great sporting teams of all time.

    Collingwood waded into that dispute because he wasn't afraid of Hayden - he wasn't afraid of Hayden because he knew he had intimidating guys like Pietersen and Flintoff to back him up. A confidence in your team-mates' support breeds confidence in your own actions, and a lack of fear of the opposition. In the Ashes, these will be important factors. This little scrap could help England - they have proven they do not fear Australia. Not for their cricket, not for their aggression, not for their talent, not for their physical power - not at all.

    Collingwood won't be worried next time he walks out to bat. He knows for every hit he takes, the Aussie quicks will take two or three when they bat.

    Hayden couldn't even take Flintoff. Flintoff used to box until he was 16, plus he's bigger than Hayden.

    An unfortunate incident, and yes, Simon Jones really did look a little worried, to say the least - or maybe he wondered about the consequences of his action. After all, he got into huge amounts of hot water in the West Indies for giving batsmen momentous 'send-offs'.

    Personally, I thought that Hayden's reaction was yet another example of how England are getting under the skin of some of these Aussies - and long may that at least continue.

    The next ball really should have been a beamer, though.

    I don't think it was unwarranted and he immediately apologised - it was an unfortunate bounce up onto Hayden, there was no intent to hit him, because there's no way Jones could've predicted that bounce.

    Honestly though, I'm not sure hitting them with the ball is the way England want to be getting under the Australian's skin. I mean, anybody is liable to get worked up if you chuck the ball at them and hit them in the head, but it's not like Hayden was shaken up by a good bouncer or being dismissed or something like that.

    I'm sure that you'd find Australians who would say that Hayden's actions were indicative of how the Australians are going to be punching back all the way through the series, no matter how much England try and spark up, etc. Not worth reading too much into, I would have thought.

    All in all, it means dead set nothing. Neither team really gains a "psychological win" or anything out of it, it wasn't as though any of the combatants took a blatant step down or shied away from confrontation.

    I don't think Jones meant to hit him, but the throw was obviously pointless and unwarranted. Hayden had his back half-turned and was already well within the crease. There was no possible intent from Jones except to shake the batsman up by throwing it back to the keeper and trying to intimidate him or whatever, and Hayden had every right to get upset with him given that it wasn't a legitimate run out attempt anything of the sort.

    It also set the scene for the worst bouts of biased commentary from the Sky team yet, with David Lloyd referring to it as "the incident earlier where Simon Jones tried to run Hayden out and he didn't like it". I mean, come on...

    Even without holding a bat, he is still a strong guy (I once heard he bench presses the most kg in the whole Aussie team).

    I don't blame Hayden for getting upset, I would too, and so would everybody else.
