Disclaimer, Iam probably better talking about cricket than playing it. But I feel my knowledge is reasonable.

But wtf do they see in Maxwell??? His fielding is outstanding but what a crazy batsmen he is. Is he going to be like another Watto where he is carried because 1 in 10 times he hits a zillion of 3 balls to win the game?  At least Watson has paid his dues for AU even if they are now overdue. But Maxwell?

I see Sth Africa scored 400+ will aB getting the fast ton ever.  We will need to be on our toes for the WC.

he's another watson.  his bowling potential keeps him in the team.

oh and james brayshaw talking him up every chance he gets on national tv...

I know I don't follow cricket a great deal, so excuse my ignorance, but just who is James Brayshaw, not a cricketing name from any Australian Team I can remember?  He just seems to talk a lot of dribble not unlike some of the others who just talk about how great they are/were.

He just goes waaaaaaayyyyy over the top with the superlatives. Every one is a superstar and everything is phenomenal.

I also don't see what they see in Maxwell. He is such a loose cannon and fails more than he succeeds.

It's the X factor that appeals to the selectors.

What did everyone think of David Warner getting fined for shouting at Rohit to speak English?

I don't condone what he did, but it it's interesting that the Indians can say whatever they like in Hindi and practically get away with it, yet those who speak English get pulled up all the time.

I think it is a tad unfair.

I recall monkeygate when India cried that Singh was speaking in Hindi and not English and therefore did not call Symonds a monkey.

This could open a can of worms.

to be honest, i thought it was disgraceful.

warner is on the record only a few weeks ago, taking the high road and saying everyone should tone it down. 

and then today, he comes up with this gem:

"We've just got to keep trying not to cross that line, because we're all about playing cricket the right way."

the right way??  what a f**king joke.

he's a little punk who needs an attitude re-adjustment.

do australians speak indian in india?  i think not.  in the heat of battle, it's no surprise that the indian native language takes precedence.  no excuse for warner.

Rohit took a run after a throw from Warner was deflected, which as we all know, is against the spirit of the game.
It has been an unwritten law since the game started.
As most of the Australian team have a very basic knowledge of Hindu, I think they may have been discussing that situation.

i have no doubt that is what they were discussing... :)

look at the footage.  if you can make out a deflection, you're doing better than me.  at the speed the ball was travelling, if it took a deflection, i would guess that it would be noticeable. 

perhaps haddin should have been a bit better in his backing-up technique, then no run would have eventuated?

as for the spirit of the game, if australia was in the world cup final and had a chance to win the final from a run off a deflection like that, are you suggesting that they wouldn't take it??

australia should start playing 'in the spirit of the game' before complaining about other teams...

Agreed....I love watching cricket love seeing the Aussies play with passion, but geez we look like a bunch of spoilt brats on the field sometimes, I actually get embarrassed for them. the likes of David Warner need to stop the winging and carry on like school girls and get on with what the do best and play cricket..

that's the thing that annoys me the most.  we get on our high horse about the spirit of the game, then we have knobs like warner that do this.

perhaps if we started to practice what we preach, then other teams would be more likely to do the same against us.

a bit of banter is great, but this was not banter.

I am not sure why so many hate Warner?  He plays the game with passion and although at the start of his career for playing for Aust I thought he would be a one hit wonder, but now I love to see him bat at his best. The following is a press release about the incident.
Cricket etiquette dictates that batsmen do not run when a throw deflects off their body or bat.
“When I went over to say something to him, he sort of said something in their language and I said, ‘Speak English,’ because, if you’re going to say something, understand that theoretically I cannot speak Hindi,” Warner said on Monday.
“I did the polite thing and asked him to speak English, therefore he did and I can’t repeat what he said.”
A replay supported India’s position that it wasn’t a deflection and, while 28-year-old Warner admitted he made a wrong call, he said he wouldn’t seek out Sharma to apologise.
“I was in the wrong ... I shouldn’t have engaged him,” Warner told Sky Sports Radio.

Yes he should not have said anything, but hey, it was in the heat of the battle and he has been punished.  And I think we all hate it when we are in the company of others who speak in their native language that we do not understand, unless we are in their country of origin. And you must admit, the India players can be a bit touchy and spit the dummy a bit.  :'(
And boy last night there were so many India supporters I thought the game was being played in India.   ;D   Go the Aussie, so far so good.  Kevin

I kind of disagree, I can remember the Indians for ever coming here and having drama after drama when we play them, were not blameless but a lot of the banter is a product of there arrogance, you only have to look it there standing in world cricket, they think they run the game.

To my mind I don't think what he said was racist at all, simply asking him to use English, prob knowing he was slagging him I guess.

Monkey gate was disgrace, they racially vilified an opposition player in front of a number of other players, and then when they were taken to task over it, decided they were gunna take there bat and ball and head home, which then caused the matter to essentially be swept under the carpet.......

In terms of our manners out there, I think we could do better, but I don't mind seeing them playing hard and fair cricket, and I didn't  see anything untoward with what happened, have your say and get on with it.

mate I don't hate warner at all I just can't stand they way some of our cricketers carry on while out in the middle, for me it is embarrassing the way we get up in the oppositions faces and you watch the aussies are always spitting venom / sledging at the batters and as soon as one of them bark back they throw a tantrum and take it to the next level..

James Brayshaw is a twat, however he did have a reasonable First Class Cricket Career, with an average of 42.5 with the bat, he would probably be getting a look at test selection these days. In is hay day, there were a number of very good test batsmen in Australia, hence, he never broke through.

He is the President of the Kangaroos (AFL Club), and has overseen some pretty big changes off the field during his tenure. I wish he would stick to that, and leave the commentary box.

What it doesn't mention on Wikipedia, is that Glenn Maxwell is not only his Love Child, he is also his Lover...

In regard to Warner, I don't like seeing the sledging and confronations on TV like they are, but I don't want him to stop either.

Asking someone who speaks fluent English to speak it, when in an English speaking country is perfectly acceptable. I would not expect Australians to speak Hidi in India, as everyone knows they cant speak it. We know that most of the Indain Cricket team can speak english.

The Indians give as good as they get, and if anyone thinks they are any less arrogant than the Aussies, then we are watching different teams.

With a world cup here next month the biggest issue will be how to contain Devilliers and McCullam on the roads we produce IMO. A bloke who hits 149 off 44 balls, reckon the 2 Mitch's are going to have their hands full!!

As for the behaviour on the ground, I just wish the umps would step in and put their foot down and stomp it out. Sit Warner and Kohli and anyone else involved on their a.... when ever they start chirping. Time to play cricket not yap. Get enough yap from the commentators.....

IMO.....
