then there was hughes in sri lanka? where the ball tracking was ludicrous (he was lbw regardless)
the aus v kiwi test in hobart was all over the shop too
I would rather have a few errors but restore the excitement of the sport than the alternative.

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

Christ, what a world where Giles Clarke is suddenly the good guy.
Shameful lack of genitalia from the other boards tho. Piss weak stuff.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
- The Guardian's Andrew Anthony
. . . and even with ICC showing a wee bit of spine, the other boards have acted exactly as they have done ever since the new bully was first seen . . . showing they were a bunch of eunuchs . . .
Its a disgrace and a terrible disappointment. As an Indian I only wish well for Indian cricket but how I wish the other boards had shown some balls and called India's bluff. If that meant no cricket for this cricket mad nation so be it even though it would be a great tragedy but this can't be allowed.
Shame, Shame, Shame.

Just a minor correction. This attitude by the other boards is not so much a lack of balls, even though that is what sounds so much better, it is this amazing greed for the moolah. Having said that, what they also show is a reluctance to show up the bully to be the coward every bully is, once his/her/its bluff is called.
It is by wanting but not daring to call India's bluff that the others have justified their 'eunuch' labels.
By the way, even with the Indian public being conditioned by the parroting of the BCCI line by its paid commentators, why shouldn't the cricket fans of other countries raise their voices against their own boards this time for refusing to do the right thing.
i thought pulling out was generally seen as the best option?
Open your eyes folks, learn to look at the BOTH the sides of a coin when discussing an issue.
I'm not a BCCI fan at all, but they do have a point when it comes to manipulation of the system by host nations. Even though such manipulations have not happened yet, it can happen anytime in near future.
Remember, how Stuart Broad and James Anderson cheated in South Africa 2010 by placing their shoe over the ball as an attempt to tamper the ball?
Yet neither of them got punished. Had it been a Pakistani....God help them.
