    It's clear what you were insinuating. Let's not pretend otherwise. But yes, as Paris Brown can attest to, what happens on the Web, stays on the Web.

    Nasser is half white. Very different. Also he is not from the regions that the majority of UK Brit Indians are from.

    Glad it's over. Absolute BS.

    I have one advice for you, if you were being serious, then you really need to do some self-introspection.

    Well I haven't read through this thread but any c**king thread that doesn't involve South Africa is a good c**king thread to me.

    Yes, I don't doubt that you enjoy a good cocking. This news comes as no surprise to me.

    So, it's 99% of specific regions now. Of course. It's all so very, very clear.

    So basically it's only a tiny minority of young bloods like tendulkar200* who are behind it all. Glad he got banned.

    **** that's a good article and pretty much sums up my views on the whole thing.

    The booing and general behaviour towards Bopara and the rest of the team pissed me off. But those that say that you haven't integrated into society if you support the English/NZ/Australian team are ignorant.

    He had failed to understand that many of us whose parents had come from South Asia to the UK have complex identities. We were proud to be British but also proud of our Indian roots. And cricket was where we could display that part of our identity.
    Well said. The tebitt test is a disgraceful idea, however the below behaviour is also disgraceful:

    While I was standing in the queue to get a drink, an elderly England fan turned to me and asked: "Why are you giving Bopara such a hard time?"

    Before I could answer, a young Indian fan replied: "We hate him as he plays for England. He is a disgrace." He then quickly rushed off back to the match.
    He was not wearing an Indian top or carrying India's flag. He was proudly wearing an England shirt with the name of his favourite player, Monty Panesar, on the back. Every time England took a wicket he jumped up from his seat to cheer. England's Monty Panesar in action

    That did not go down well with some of the Indian fans. About five moved to some seats closer to him and began chanting "spot the sell-out". Another shouted "coconut" - a derogatory term that means you are brown on the outside but white inside.
    These Indian fans need to be clocked asap. That is just disgraceful behaviour and if I was there I'd have ****ing launched at them. I really hope I never see that here in Australia.

    Indians are brought up to be uber nationalists and culture chauvinist (our culture and "sanskar" are great. West and middle east are rotten. yada yada). I was one uber nationalist myself and I cringe now looking back at some poetry I had written on praising India and its culture back in high school. Thankfully I have gotten over that. Many Indian just cannot.

    In South Africa everyone is brought up to say that our country is poor, when it isn't nearly as bad to deal with as people make out.
