    For the benefit of those of us who missed it, was Afridi's celebration any different from his 'hands in the air, everyone acknowledge how amazing I am' celebration?

    Nothing wrong with Afridi's celebration, IMO. Let your freak-flag fly. This ain't 1955 where you got a handshake if you just bowled the ball of the century.

    I don't think you can call Chappelli bias. He went on about Ponting's captaincy last night and called the Australian over-rate "disastrous/abysmal".

    In general, he is a grumpy old sod who has good analysis but sometimes he is grumpier than usual.

    Yeah he's just a grumpy, opinionated old man. Usually good value, but sometimes his opinion can be... strange.

    I can see where hes coming from regarding the Afridi celebration , i dont necessarly agree with him but see what he means.

    It was the 9th wicket and his first and it was'nt a brilliant ball either where as if he was tearing through the aussie line up or just got Ponting or Hussey out with a ripper then then 'Look at me im amazing' celebration would probably more apt.

    I think thats why Chap was moaning about it.

    Indeed and I have heard state the same about Brett Lee's celebrations at times....

    Ian was a big Pakistan supporter during the 90's and uptill mid 00's I think all the recent happenings with Pakistan has hurt him however that does not give him the right to be a tool with a mic in hand.

He had a problem with Afridis celebration, then he had a problem with Pakistani team huddle at the end of the innings. He just came out so obviously irritated. It wasnt just what he said, it was the tone too, if any of you aussies are related to him, tell him to take his anger out on his girlfreind, the commentary box isnt the place.
    I like him really. He is insightful and quite a learned fellow. But somehow he transforms (like Sunny Gavaskar at seeing Sachin) into a schoolboy fan at the sight of Ponting. Also I think he dislikes the Pakistani team (many of us do, especially after the way the game has been brought to disrepute by some of them, so not entirely unwarranted). But his stint in the commentary was quite bad yesterday, all his cards went wrong for him I think.

    Also he has been uncharacterestically inconsistent in his views on Ponting over the last few years.
