    Don't want to be an old fart, but never liked send offs. The job's done, you have your man, no need to be a cock about it. Questioning a batsman's techique/courage/parentage/sexuality might serve some purpose before he's dismissed (SR Waugh's "mental disintegration", etc), but afterwards it looks more than a little ****ish, IMHO.

    Sidearse was particularly bad with the SOs.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Playing a premeditated shot and telling the bowler in advance is probably the worst thing a batsman can do

    btw How can we embed videos in CW?

    haha.......so true.....Sohail was bizarre really so can't blame Imran there
    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

    When I take a wicket, I never feel any need or temptation to badmouth the batsman. It's just so redundant, you've already beaten the batsman fair and square, the job is done.

    Speaking for myself, not a fan of giving sendoffs or being verbally aggressive in any other way. Wouldn't judge someone else for doing it though - guess it's different strokes for different folks.
    Personally speaking, always believed that if the ball does the talking, the bowler doesn't need to utter a single word. And that day when the ball delivered from my hand stops talking, I'd pick up a different sport!

    Had two send offs in my club game today. The second one created an incident which I can't divulge on the Internet. Further reinforced my belief that send offs are a bad idea.

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