    No I'm not defending Haddin. Fairly certain I bagged the **** out of him in the match thread the minute the incident occurred.

    I'm just saying that ultimately it's not the first time we've seen players around a single batsman. That's all.

    Sorry Jono, I thought you were implying that it was the Pakistani players who were ganging up on Haddin.

    Haha, yeah it really is. Over here, if we can't settle our difference, we fight. And then share a beer afterwards. All get's solved.

    Funny.I always thought NZ were a bunch of pussies.Maybe it's because they don't have as many ugly players in their team,which even makes their sledging look like a bunch of 17 year old girls arguing over who has the tighter mini skirt.

    I think you're all missing the key bit in the video - the text at the bottom of the screen

    Haha, they mentioned that about a million times on the telecast here. Even when they had only lost 3 wickets, the choking talk had started!

    Maybe they are. If it took 4 of them, one not even playing, so coming onto the field to help his mates, to intimidate one guy, who, by the way, is smaller than them.
    What sort of message are these "heroes" sending to their many fans out there. Never expected this from NZ. Very poor show IMO.
    Congrats NZ, apart from that incident, your guys did play way better than ours and deserved to win.

    Looks like we aren't a lock for the Spirit Of Cricket award this year. Maybe one of our players might actually win a real award for a change.

    After his hugely disappointing two seasons for Lancashire I had a few words I wanted to say to faf - looks like they've been said for me

    Hmmm - never quite bought into the idea that players who don't indulge in this sort of stuff aren't emotional enough / aren't personalities / aren't committed enough / etc, but I know I'm in a minority with that particular view.

    WTF was Mills doing?? He wasn't even playing. That was unnecessary. In the end Faf just pushed him away. AB came in after seeing this just to calm Faf down.

    Just watched the vid. That's what they call a fight these days?






    Unnecessary from Mills though - he's such an angry curly-haired man.

    Have to admit, from the way it was reported on SSN up here I was rather let down by how innocuous it all looks. Bit of the old ultraviolence it's not.

    It's not like they were actually having a swing at him. In fact the only physical contact I saw was du Plessis shoving Mills. "Mental disintegration" they call it, don't they?

    Just personal taste, but I'd rather players have a pop when their "victim" can still shove their words down their throats than seen them give a bloke who's already out a send-off.

    Oh get off the damn high horses ffs. If I want to watch a bunch of robots bowling and batting I'd buy a bloody video game. Show some passion already, I'm totally with the NZ guys here. A word in the ear and a bit of mind games just makes for better viewing and makes a tough game really exciting with a bit of an edge. Some of the comments here sound like a few blokes have had it rough in the school ground. Come on, these are grown men, they can take a bit of banter without bursting into tears.
