    Cricket's biggest whingers

    Interesting topic, I'm thinking along the lines of

    Ricky Ponting (obviously)
    Graham Smith
    Peter Roebuck

    More to come..

    Unfortunately, I have to say Ponting. Steve wouldn't have been like this.

    I don't think Ponting is the biggest whiner in terms of frequency but when he does, he's incessant. I mean him going on about Gary Pratt was intolerable but this latest episode makes him and the team look a bit precious about having lost the Ashes. I mean, what happened to "Oh, it was just a privilege to play in one of the greatest series of all time"? Now it's "Oh, it actually DID hurt to lose!". Makes the statements made along the lines of hte former appear pretty hollow now.

    The only reason he might not be the biggest whiner in terms of frequency is because Australia don't lose very often. For those who missed Ponting's latest episode:

    I love the caption on the picture... so true. He is definitely cricket's biggest whinger.

    From the article geordie fishface linked to...

    "Looking back at a week or two's time it will probably be quite funny, but on our night - the Australian cricket team's night of nights for the whole year - I didn't think the timing was that good."

    Oh dear, as the saying goes.

    In my opinion, Ricky Ponting's reaction proves that the timing by Tuffers was absolutely perfect. It's about time Ricky realised that this game of cricket that he is so fortunate to play at a high level - so blessed in fact that I am sure he will be remembered as an all-time great of the highest order, it purely and simply that - a game.

    The night should be a celebration of all the things that are great about Australian cricket (and you don't need an Urn for that) - it seems that some want it to be a night for mutual back-slapping and self-admiration.

    What a prize one.

    "Do you wake up in the middle of the night thinking you might have dropped the Ashes? I have got Herschelle Gibbs' phone number here if you want some counseling."

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I'm glad Warne took it with good humour, Ponting just had to be a whinge about it didn't he.

    Scott Styris & Craig McMillan are pretty bad at times.
