It has been discussed in the tour thread.
Can you move posts pls?
Think it deserves its own separate thread TBH, the Gibbs row of a similar nature did a year ago.
Can you move posts from the tour thread here?
Btw,this is turning into a media battle too as the Indian media and experts are backing harbhajan and aussies seem to be backing symonds.
I doubt anything will come of it unless it was picked up by a stump-mic or something. It quite probably was said (I don't buy the argument that the Aussies are making it up to distract Harbahjan) but it would be difficult to prove definitively.
Racism in every form should be shunned. However, in this particular incident, Harbhajan Singh has denied the allegation. So it is the word of Symonds v the word of Harbhajan Singh. I don't know which players and umpires heard what yet. Till a verdict is passed and I know more details, I wont be judgemental and start bashing Harbhajan Singh yet. We have already had more than our fair share of drama for this test though and it is a controversy which the series could have done without.
Just watching the highlights and HS clearly says to the umpire "no, I didn't"
Not like Australians to be crying foul, what was the problem? We could not get him out?
You know it makes sense.
- Lot of **** written in the Australian newspapers. Bhogle showed a few today.
- One piece was on how caste determines who is selected for India. Another piece was saying Harbhajan to be sent home.
- Bhogle has pointed out that judgements used to be passed based on evidence and there has been no evidence presented yet.
- It is irritating how Harbhajan Singh is suddenly being pronounced villain by a lot of people,before a judgement has been passed.

Agree with P FTR, it's plain madness that this has happened again, but as of yet we don't really know a lot other than that the accusation has been made. No sense condemning anyone until it has been substantiated.
Dire headline. How do you "reignite" a storm? Poor journalism at best.
