so warne got into the icc awards test side. and murali didn't. Fair enough, if the judges thought warne has been the better spinner.
But what i have a problem with is the attitude of the white world towards this. An example is Botham's comments today saying that a reason was the cloud over murali's action. Still fine, if warne was an angel.
But they conveniently forgot a somewhat more significant "cloud" over warne - he has been out of action for much of the past 12 months and the reason? He took drugs. The scourge of modern sport. and yet because he is a white man and, even better he is an australian cricketer, that is deemed irrelevant.
If a subcontinent player were to have been found guilty of taking drugs then he would be slammed by the media and have no chance of winning such an accolade.
