    Good bump by the bot.

    (Which has now been deleted I think)

    have always hated send offs.

    I will never forget though Willie Watson was giving everyone including Heath verbals at every opportunity. So Heath Streak gave some of it back after taking a wicket. And he got his match fee fined and watson got away scot free. So in my mind swearing at players all together should be out. I don't really see why it is allowed in the game. It is uncouth, and poor sportsmanship.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Yeah, despise send-offs. You've already got him out, ffs, no need to carry on.

    Siddle is particularly bad in this regard I have to say.

    remember shoaib akhtar getting fined for showing Hayden the way to the pavilion after dismissing him
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    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

    Most batsmen aren't around long enough for me to get cranky enough to give em a spray. Does happen sometimes though.

    Got tailgated when driving away from a club game my brother was playing in when his send-off was taken a bit too seriously by the opposition. It was a bit scary really.

    I got a send off in school boy cricket once - I had switched allegiance to another school and was playing against my former school. After a heated run chase where I made 50 and brought us to within striking distance their best bowler then got me lbw. "On your bike Hurricane" and pointed me to the pavillion. It was the winning of the game. He got told off by the umpire and had to apologize to me. He probably thought it was worth it.

    Was a Gillette cup 2nd round knock out game for the kiwi posters.

    Gave a batsman a send off a few weeks ago in our semi final. We were defending a small target and the bloke had failed to hit anything at all that was outside the off stump but kept giving us lip. Gave him a few words on his way off the ground but I felt like a proper dick afterwards.

    Lost the game, too.

    Batsmen deserve them every time

    Not against any form of verbals, but the vast majority tend to be crap. If the bowler's genuinely beaten the batsman after the batsman was nattering, then the bowler probably deserves the last word. Otherwise, a send off just looks idiotic.
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    So you will be fine if I call you a **** after each delivery during my over off spin then,

    And my fielders have a go at you after each delivery.

    I will remember this if there is ever a CW game on neutral territory.

    Brad Williams could fit into the current test side pretty well.

    I'd say you were being a pillock. I'd be right.

    Also, if there is a CW game, I wouldn't have to put with it for very long. My innings tend to not outstay their welcome.

    nothing gets worse than this

    Sreesanth bowls a pathetic ball, and gets a wicket and acts as if he is going to kill Symonds if he meets him after the match(even though Symonds is double in size).
