    Is there still a substantial amount of racism in modern cricket.

    They're have been a few threads about the whole hair thing and the black South African players and it raises the question, Is there still a substantial amount of racism in modern cricket? Now I emphasise the word substantial because they're is always going to be some racism.

    Er...yes?

    Do we really need a new thread for this?

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 don't know if it is racism, but there is a lot of jealousy between all of the countries
    You know it makes sense.

    I wouldn't say a substantial amount, but it's still there. South Africa have a racist selection policy and the ICC should neck up and tell them to get rid of it. I haven't read any Hair threads lately, but anyone suggesting that he is a racist is an idiot.

    There was the whole pakistan ball tampering thing which I thought was pathetic at the end of the day Hair would've done the same if It was England doing it or Australia, New Zealand etc

    no, no racism at all.

    Darrell Heir did everything wrong in that match, he was asking to be banned. It had nothing to do with it causing Pakistan to lose the match, thats completely irrelevent.

    In fact, if you listen closely, you can hear Heir on the stump mic bribing Inzamam to throw the game so he can go home early.

    /sarcasm

    btw Heir did everything right, Pakistan lost the match and he gets banned by the sub continental board....FIGURE IT OUT BARNABY JONES

    Given that there are 2 International teams that have racial selection policies in Zimbabwe and South Africa there is of course racism. Though probably not quite in the way you mean it.

    There are other forms of discrimination that are probably more prevelant around the World than race.

    Take a look at the obvious in terms of the World getting smaller. There are Asians in the England team, an English mixed race (or maybe not mixed race as its hard to know for sure given he was adopted) guy in the Aussie team and an Australian trying to break into the WI team.

    There are also 10s, if not 100s, of cases of people being favoured or looked down upon for issues other than race Im not aware of.

    For once I'm going to agree with bond21 and SST. Hair might have many faults but if you're caught ball tampering then you should pay the penalty.

    I don't think there is a person in the world who would say you shoudn't pay the penalty if you get caught ball tampering.....
