    Ganguly to Gilchrist- you're not as innocent as you look

    The one thing i like about the Indians on this tour has been that they were able to reply and irritate the Aussies.It used to be so one sided in previous tours . This article is from a local newspaper and so typed it myself. Will try to find an online link of the same article.


    It was not all camaraderie in the last match of the cricket series with Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly being sledged by Aussie speedster Brad Williams during the tri-series final here today.

    Williams started to abuse Ganguly from the moment he came out to bat and it was hard enough for the Indian captain to draw the attention of his counterpart Ricky Ponting before he took guard in the middle.

    "From the time I walked out of Sydney gates till I reached the middle, it kept going. (I spoke to Ponting) because I didn't want it to start all over again... I didn't want to blow it out of proportion."

    But it was not as if only India were at the receiving end as their young paceman Irfan Pathan was all fire himself, consistently having a go at Matthew Hayden and clapping in the face of Damien Martyn after he got him out, forcing the batsman to complain to the umpire before he left the ground.

    Though Hayden did not want to comment on the incident, Ganguly was more forthcoming.

    "I keep telling my boys that everytime they get aggressive, my match fees get deducted. I keep telling them to be careful because at this rate I might land up with no money after this tour," he said in a lighter vein.

    The bantering was on throughout the series and Indians found Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden, two cricketers with the clean cut image, quite a mouthful behind the stumps.

    Ganguly, apparently retorted once to Gilchrist after one of his constant chatters "you're not as innocent as you look".

    What was that today with Pathan and Damien Martyn.???

    Always good to see a bit of needle in the middle.. but I dont think Pathan should be having a go at a guy who has achieved 10X more than him...

    All Pathan did was smile silly and clap. He didnt even utter a word. I thought the reaction of Martyn was quite uncalled for and so was that of the umpire.

    So you are drawing a line which begins when talking is involved?? By that logic i could make any gesture at a batsman when i got him out?? And as long as i said nothing, it wouldnt matter??

    Anyway it livened up another typically dour Martyn knock lol

    Its stupid to say a word to the batsman when he is out or show his way to the pavilion. Pathan's was not some thing disgracing the batsman I thought. It just got into the head of Maryn coz he was flustered at being out I thought.

    Also I found it quite funny for the umpire to start advising Pathan on how to behave and nothing said to Martyn who was moving his hands all over to the umpire at the 'gestures' of Pathan.

    I think Martyn was well within his rights to kick up a fuss.... Pathan was all over him, he shouldnt have taken it, especially from a youngster...

    Rubbish. I don't see Martyn complaining when Lee & Williams are acting like four year olds, and Pathan's nothing like as bad (I assume - I mean, it's not a chainsaw, and it's not 4/200)

    Okay they have given the odd batsman send offs, but ive never seen them come right up to a batsman for a one to one... Pathans effort was of almost Nelesque proportions...

    That's right. There's nothing wrong with wanting less interaction like that on field, if you're like that, but you need some consistency. You can't dish it out and then not take it.

    As for the chainsaw etc, I think it's good.

    IIRC, Nel wasn't allowed to get away with that...

    If Williams can do it, so can Pathan. Show consistency or don't do anything at all.

    Martyn's complaint was weak and ridiculous. Why didn't he complain when Williams went right into Ganguly's face in the Brisbane match?
