    The ICC Fair Play Award

    http://nz.cricinfo.com/link_to_datab...09SEP2004.html

    What a ridiculous article. Complaining about the fact that England didn't win the token award, which unfortunately went to NZ most likely because no NZ players featured anywhere else.

    I don't see a place for this award..and to call it a travesty that it went to NZ (due to Fleming's exchange with Smith earlier in the year) almost seems as though Mr.Miller is eating sour grapes.

    Whilst I agree that the article is a touch sour, I'm not so sure that New Zealand really deserve the award either - by the same token, there are very few appealing candidates.

    I'd like to see the criteria for this award..I just don't see the point of it anyway.
    I also agree...what what i've seen & heard, NZ surely are not the most well behaved team on the cricket-field in terms of sledging etc.

    But I get the feeling NZ were given this award because no NZ players featured anywhere else..especially in the ODI XI.

    They should've given it to Bangladesh.

    What about the Windies? I don't think they sledge all that much and they generally behave pretty well.

    If sledging is an issue looked at when choosing the award over a year then it's probably best not to have it at all...........unless it's an opportunity for the Cudgen Under 12's to step up and be seen on an international stage.

    I don't think it's as bad a problem as you make it out to be..

    Ive never seen a Mugabwean do a lot of sledging, Aus are rapidly cleaning up their act, WI arent bad bar Best who is diabolical...
