    Ponting and Katich fined

    Ponting fined 75% of match fee and Katich 50%.

    Punter seems to have got off exceptionally lightly. Thought it should've been a whole match fee & maybe a suspended ban.

    About right for Katich tho.

    Possibly, but it's showing dissent that is the issue.

    Spot on. Why can't Australians accept this? It's not rocket science.

    Ponting should be more upset at his inept running than Englands use of sub fielders tbh.

    You wouldn't see Lara or Tendulkar walk off the ground yelling abuse at the fans/opposing team because they got a rough decision. This whole episode just goes to show what a bunch of sore losers the Aussie cricket team are.

    Err, right. Katich was given out with one of the worst lbw decisions you'll ever see, after batting for half a day trying to save a test and doing nothing wrong and he mouthed off and he's a "sore loser"? He couldn't have just, you know, been frustrated?

    Anyway, the fines are about on the money I think, although I'm surprised Katich got 50% when 25% would have seemed more appropriate.

    Yeah, if Ponting only got fined 75%, 50% is too much for Katich. I didn't have that much of a problem with that Katich did anyway, he had a reason to feel hard done by.

    I have seen worser decisions given to Lara and he has always handled himself with aplomb. It is not like Katich is a youngster, is it? I have seen him given LBW by an umpire off Ntini bowling over the wicket. It was way worser than the Katich LBW, remember that.

    difference is honestbharani...

    Context... Context... Heat of the moment is going to be far hotter in an Ashes test in that situation than against Lara playing Zimbabwe, remember that.

    I dont think Lara has ever blown his lid on the field be it against Zim or Eng/Aus, Slats. Hes in a totally different league.

    neither have a lot of Australian players, yet it's convenient to only focus on the negatives here isn't it.
