Mixed reactions after cheating accusation against Australia

    Really Mr De Mel Santh would have been killed. You guys didn`t want him in the world cup squad in the first place. Relationship between the two countries been strained for the last twelve years not from what I can see Sri Lankans are lining up in draws to immigrate to Australia more than ever some even are trying to get there as a boat people. Mr De Mel are you now talking about fairness why was your promising career cut short in the beginning specially what happened after the world cup you were involved in England. Sri Lanka got much more pressing problems than wining the Cricket world cup this is why it has become the basket case of Asia.

    Yes. We have a big Tamil problem also. Before they started this nonsense Sri Lankan was ahead of most other Asian countries. And after the Tamils started the war they too fell from being a respectable community to one of relief beggars in camps. How sad.

    [Adoooo TedThorne ....

    Do you know that the Austrian are THE worst in the field?

    Their Sledging policy were appreciated by the ICC official as Testing the batters

    They use bad language in the ground.

    In a match , SL vs Auss , Langer knocked the bails and he himself appeal as the batter was out. But the TV replay show the truth but no action was taken against him.

    Underarm blowing by Chappel brothers?

    ICC is a toothless tiger against the `White Skin`]

    Gmathiesw, wow didn`t know about the Austrians, but thanks forthe update.

    I guess cricket has spread further into Europe than even the ICC knew about. Maybe they will try out the qualifiers next World Cup.

    Should be encouraging the minnow nations like Austria, Canada, Ireland and of course Sri Lanka.

    If the Austrains took a leaf out of the Australians book on fielding then they would improve. As afterall the Australians are the worlds best fielders (oh and team unit, and batsmen & bowlers and sportsmen).

    Its hilliarious when the Sri Lankans play the racist card.

    I guess that they have no intellectual argument so back to basics from the School of Guttermouths.

    Cricket laws are funny! If you change the handle of a bat to render more grip it`s illegal. When you put something in your glove to achieve the same, you are fine!! What a mess!

    Yes funny game, there`s no limitations to the number of batting grips that a cricketer can put on his handle either.

    And the batting grip is made from...........you guessed it rubber!
