    ALL bias views. Im not going to make any comments except that every team is basically as bad as each other except probably Kenya.

    Take the jealousy elsewhere. Im sick of people making excuses for Australias brilliantness. Just face it mate.

    The Aussies are pretty bad (and Ricky Ponting is no Angel). However, there are many teams who are just as bad, if not worse.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Yea exactly Mr W and I never said Ponting was perfect.

    However he has certainly improved since that night club incident. A LOT.

    I know you didn't, and my post was not a go at you it was in reference to Yaju's post:

    Some australians are gentle. e.g. Ricky Ponting, the team's captain. There are others also.

    I don't know about racist comments and physical abuse but in the end I guess that nobody's perfect. You can't deny the fact that Australia is the best team in the world.
    And yes, he has improved, but he still has his moments. Like yelling at batsman for not walking, when he is the last player in International cricket that would walk. That really ****s me.

    This clearly has potential to get ugly, so I trust that certain parties will be wise enough not to let that happen.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Kenya is more well behaved than Pakistan. If you are saying that I am comparing Kenya to Pakistan, well, last year Kenya reached WC Semis whereas Pakistan couldn't even reach the super sixes.

    Shoaib is only one example....But there is no second one...
    He is just one of 100 Top class cricketers in Pakistan at the moment...who do like him..
    Look at Inzamam, Shoaib Malik, Youhana, Yasir Hameed, Taufeeq Umar, Younis Khan and so on....
    There are only 1-3 who are really bad... But the others have a very good behaviour and as the new coach called Pakistan as the most deciplined team of the world (following to the time table) , you could also see that they have a good behaviour...

    most teams sledge.. the aussies, prolly deservedly have the worst name, but the others aren't exactly shrinking violets, most indians recall donalds verbal assault on dravid ( and dravids cricketing counter).
    like someone said this cud turn ugly so i will stop, but i can't resist making oine pt abt langeveldt's comment vis a vis pathan... no age restrictions on sledging, or am i mistaken?????

    I agree that somebody can't comment on somebody not walking when they don't walk.

    Although I can see this thread being closed pretty soon.

    Why? I haven't seen anything said that could be defamatory or cause argument. Infact, I think everyone has treated this topic with respect. I don't see how that could cause it to be closed, do you?

    This thread is the disgrace!

    When Adam Gilchrist walked, no-one from Sri Lanka said a word.
    When Ponting won't walk, everyone goes nuts...!

    I think this is nothing more then an attempt to stir up some emotions...

    I can make a FULLY unbiased call, as I am an Australian but do not support them.
    The Australians will sometimes make mistakes, as will every team.
    However, when Australia makes a mistake, it is blown out of context because they are the "role-model team."

    Check your facts before you start a stupid thread...Please...

    Calm down mate! Don't make me take back what I said in my last post...

    This thread is not useless, it has been well documented in the media that Australia have the worst reputation, the ICC have even acknowledged it, so have the ACB (sorry...Cricket Australia). The Australian's even had to go into camp to address the problem and write their own rules regarding sledging and abuse.

    In regards to Ponting. It is not the fact that he doesn't walk, that is any batsman's right. However, the fact that he then belates opposition batsman for not walking is not right, and quite frankly a low act.

    It is the same as Justin Langer demanding the batsman to take his word for a catch, when he himself has benefited (sp) from t.v replays on several occasions.
