    Lol @ selective quoting.

    That's my point isn't it? If he did this, I will seriously see him in a different light. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt, but all evidence (except what he said) points to him giving the order.

    I see nothing wrong in forgiving my favourite sportsmen their occasional misdemeanors, TBF. We don't exactly love them for their large-heartedness and generosity. But yeah, that was a bit small-minded from Sanga there. So pointless in the larger scheme of things.

    Yeah, huge OTT reaction from me here. Sanga is visually the best batsman I've seen and would make my top 5 fav cricketers of all-time till yesterday. God, Do I detest him now though.

    Speak for yourself. Don't ruin my "Hate Player X" moment.

    It just seems petty.

    Thoughts on whether he'd have done the same thing to Sachin? Or even Yuvraj or any other teammate at Punnjab Kings XI?

    I hope he would've done it for Yuvraj

    Sachin - Not very different reaction expected from Sachin. Both extremely simple and kind-hearted people. Way way bigger uproar though, would cause massive Sanga hatred here for years to come.

    Yuvraj - A lil' whine with the press from Yuvi. Not much of a public uproar. Doubt it would happen due to obvious reasons though.

    This.

    Sachin would definitely feel more disappointed about it than Sehwag I feel, though he'd handle it in his usual diplomatic way.

    I just don't see the point of it. Stooping a bit to gain a competitive advantage for your team is understandable (though even worse morally) but this is just petty as Jono said.

    If anyone calls him a great captain in the future(I don't care what he is going to achieve), I would always remind everyone of how he was okay with losing a match as long as an opposition batsman did not reach his 100.

    Surely I'm not alone in not believing this? He DEFINITELY said something to Randiv when the scores were tied.
    I have to say I wasn't aware of that rule, could it be he told Randiv to finish it with an easy one to hit for Sehwag to make the ton?

    It's similar to if they need one to win, hit it for four but the batsmen complete a run before the ball reaches the boundary.

    Wouldn't explain Randiv's back foot almost crossing the crease though.
