    Absolute disgrace

    What the **** is this:

    YouTube - Fight Between Ab de villiers and five New zeland Players

    This is so shocking and disgraceful. I haven't seen this kind of bullying ever, and it looks totally unprovoked. Come on, this is not soccer. At least 3 match ban should be slapped on all guilty ones there.

    First, it was between Faf, Vettori and Mills. By the look of things the matter was over quickly and Styris and Faf were having a laugh about it even before the next ball was bowled. Don't see an issue here. Love to see a bit of emotion on the field. They aren't robots.

    Not saying this just because of this incident (althogh it does contribute), but I find this NZ team a really unlikeable bunch of people.

    Is this worse than the Pakistanis going at Haddin and the Australians going at Raina when they mistakenly (and stupidly) accused him of blocking the keeper?

    All those incidents left a sour taste, but this NZ one isn't that much worse.

    Though, the problem with this one from NZ was that Mills got involved. He wasn't even playing. GTFO Mills, That's crossing the line.

    Raina incident was not all that bad really. This looks like an out and out attempt at bullying.and almost getting physical, 3-4 guys pushing and nudging one guy. Looks horribly ugly.

    Don't think this is too bad tbh. The important thing is how the players involved feel and it was good-natured, IMO. None of the players really cared about it beyond the incident.

    Yeah having watching it again it does look a bit worse than the Aust vs. Raina incident.

    But the fact Faf and Styris were joking at the end kind of makes it mehish.

    The only push I saw was when Faf shoved Mills away.

    Coming from an Ice Hockey crazed nation, I see a lot of this and this.

    So I'm all for it tbh, I'd love to see a bit more of that.

    Poor de Villiers.

    EDIT: Watching that again, it really is a disgusting act by New Zealand. I mean I'm really disgusted by that behaviour. Horrible sportsmen really. Do they learn their manners from Ricky Ponting? Ban them for two games.

    I think there's definately a difference between having someone mouth off from behind the stumps to having 4 big guys crowd you out like that. But it's hard to see where you can draw the line. So long as Faf doesn't feel the need to bring up a personal complaint there's not much here to get excited about.

    It was Haddin who was going at the at our players and especially Younis. He was outraged at Afridi for using a review against the almighty Ponting. How dare Afridi do that
