    Should Ponting be banned from cricket for using the illegal bat?

    I think he should be banned from cricket for 2 years 'coz he is using a illegal bat from the last 1 year to score runs.

    You are right 'coz if he is a great batsman then why does he have to play with a illegal bat.

    What illegal bat? I thought all bats were legal in Australia except some species of Fruit Bat which can carry rabies.

    If you're English you'd probably want this to go ahead.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    I voted yes, but I don't think a 2 year ban is enough really. I think he should recieve a lifetime ban, and a two year jail sentence.

    Seriously though, the bat was legal when he used it. It was not different from any other bat in any significant way.

    I suggest a beating with the graphite bat. That'd be ironic, what with the bat being illegal and all

    I think we've done okay against him over the years really, he's not scored mountains.

    Anyway this is nonsense.

    I think he should be flogged publically once for every run he scored with the graphite bat.
