    Gillespie has a rant at English crowds

    Not trying to stick up for the barmy army who I think are a bit of a blot on the cricketing landscape, but this is a bit rich isn't it? http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/engva...ry/217174.html

    After all, coming from the country that produced the pitch invader that escorted who was it, Ganguly? Back to the dressing room at Lords.. Not to mention the guys that used to throw tinnies full of urine at Adrian Kuiper and Pat Symcox.. And the Sydney Hill

    Is he doing a bit of a Langer?

    I suggest he gets the Sydney Hill in order first. Bit of a ridiculous whinge, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was taken out of context.

    I think he has a point to be honest... After all it is the Ashes and the English and Aussie fans have never been the best of pals...

    Ever hear of an umpire called Shakoor Rana?

    Ever wanted to know the full transcript of the 'conversation' between him and Mike Gatting? (If you know it, PLEASE don't repeat it on here because you - and I - will get banned). The stump-mic has a lot to answer for (ask Sarwan, ask McGrath, ask pretty well every international cricketer) but being partially deaf my lipreading's getting better

    My old pal David Constant (there's a name to raise the hackles on the sub-continent) used to tell me some amazing stories you just wouldn't believe when I used to work with him - and there were one or two Indians involved there too. The Bangladeshis and Zimbabweans were after his time as an international umpire though.

    It is no different to any part of the world any visiting cricketer usually cops some stick. I have seen Craig McMillan cop stick from a section of Aussie fans at the 'Gabba before in a one-day match when was fielding on the boundary.

    Although I can understand his POV.

    Yeah, sorry about that mate, I'd had a fair few (that's how I managed to fill the cans right up to the brim). Kuiper didn't deserve that kind of behaviour - I thought many people around the world might have appreciated the sight of Symcox covered in pi$$ though.

    Copping sh*t is part of the job description in being an international cricketer. I'd expect a much thicker skin from someone who's been in the international arena as long as he has.

    Would he be making those comments though if his stats this series were a bit impressive? Probably not.
