Send offs given by bowlers
Sunil Gavaskar was commentating when Williams gave Taibu a send off after taking his wicket. He made the remark that send offs didnt happen much in his days and is really not on. I quite agree with his views.
Andre Nel and Brad Williams are annoying to say the least in the way they send off batsmen. I am all for bowlers celebrating after taking wickets. Like Showaib Akhtar does his aeroplane runs after taking wickets. But showing weird faces to a batsman is disrespectful..
Just imagine how it would look if a batsman starts celebrating and shouting on the bowler every time a bowler is hit for a four.
People may argue that it brings another dimension to the game and makes the game more attractive but celbrations can be made without the stuff players like Williams and Nel do..
Happy Australian day to all Aussies
I don't see what is wrong with send offs.
But it cannot become offensive, that is stepping over the mark.
