    Andre Nel and sledging

    Hey guys I didnt get to see the test match but I read that Andre Nel had some altercation with the Aussies and then got hammered all over the place. What was that incident about?

    Also I just read an article now on cricinfo where Tony Greig's complaining about Aussies sledging.

    Does anyone know what the Aussies were saying?

    Andre Nel was being his usual chatty self, and Adam Gilchrist hit him for 22 runs off an over, and Nel gave Gilchrist a massive spray over it. Gilchrist replied with something like "you're giving me a serve because I hit you for a boundary, show some respect". Nel copped some criticism for it.

    Regarding the Australian sledging, I don't know what they said, but apparently the stump mics were turned up for this game, and there were some complaints, so the Australian team requested they be turned down again.

    Supposely we can't because Tony Greig mentioned that Aus players wanted the stump mics turned down on the TV, but they could still hear it in the commentary box.

    That article made no sense, Greig said that the stump mikes were so loud you could hear every word, i could barely hear a thing.

    The feed they get in the commentary box, see he explained that they can manually turn up the volume on the stump mics, but because of the Aussies request it won't be turned up so loud on the feed that is produced by the TV company for transmission.

    But wasn't that complaint made after the incident?

    ...He added that the broadcasters had to turn down the volume on the stump microphones after concerns about what was being said.
    I suppose it might have been after the Nel incident, and anyway most players if they want to be really nasty get down in the middle of the pitch away from the stumps first.

    what the hell is up with that? They need to tone down their sledging. Asking to switch off stump mikes means they are guilty as charged, really... Not that I am surprised.
