Oom certainly did. But he's a fat old racist prick. The odd Kiwi chimed in with someone saying Warner's wife wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed because she had the temerity to defend her husband and herself.

But weren't they handing SBW masks out at the ground to fans? Just having some fun, eh? Classic Saffa humour lolz.

If it didn't happen then a number of quarters need to apologise or explain themselves.
There is innocent and guilty and sort of in the middle is case not proven. That for me is where this is.

Remember after the 2011 RWC when South African fans ran referee Bryce Lawrence out of Rugby, by threatening to kill him and rape his wife? Hundreds of thousands of them joined Facebook hate sites that targeted him. That was just banter, yeah? Just innocent fun? Oh how they laughed!

He scratches away the marks and takes a left hand stance and surveys the field as if he was Pant. Then Pant comes in and asks for his mark as does every decent batsman at the beginning of a new session. Nothing in it.

“It's something I do in games to visualise where we are bowling, how the batter is playing our bowlers and then out of habit I always mark centre,"
Also the statement from CA is horseshit coverup as well, because if anyone actually watched the video that I posted originally then unless Steve smith “marks out centre” clearly not on middle stump & facing away from the bowler when he’s batting then he’s not doing anything except rubbing marks out. I’ve never seen a batter mark centre facing away from the bowling end.
You also are making a fool of yourself.

He is a confirmed cheat so it's understandable he is not trusted. I just don't see why his captain does not tell him to stop doing it. It's a real nothing incident to be getting his name out there in the negative again.

I have a feeling that Smith is hard wired to act the way he does, he can't help himself. We can argue till the cows come home about whether it was out and out cheating, one thing I'm pretty sure is that this would be one of the very first time's he's ever gone and scratched new marks trying to visualize what a left hander might be thinking or whatever lame excuse they invented, firstly, as has been pointed out, the marks were already there, all he has to do is take guard and go...oh so this is what it's like...yeah right.
I think it's more of a subconscious thing, bit like a dog pissing over another dogs scent, also knowing what superstitious people cricketers are, perhaps he was trying to mess with Pant by putting down an extra mark to put him of ...which mark was mine type of thing, regardless of his reasons it's a bit iffy to say the least
Another thing I noticed in a previous test match which no one really picked up on but I thought was odd, was when he was bowled behind his legs, turned and watch the bail fall, then took off for the run anyway, he's seen the bail go, was it just an inbuilt refusal to accept he's lost his wicket?

If it was up to me, Warner and Smith would be rubbed out of the game for ever.

Doesn’t mean that Smith doesn’t have a bona fide personality disorder though.

Likewise but sports stars here get unlimited passes in life, see rugby league.
I thought Paine was doing a great job up to this point even if his cricket probably wasnt quite to a standard needed. He had the revious era behind him but its bubbled back up and worse led by him.
Hes lost me after this test and has shown to be a team liability with his keeping.
I think he has to go after this series.

Agreed. These guys don’t seem to realise that the baggy green is a privilege, not a right

The ABs have the right idea about this stuff


In that sense, I think it’s a bit different than getting a second chance at the Gold Coast Titans or some such. To clarify, i should have said I’m not advocating that these guys can’t earn a living, only that they shouldn’t be captaining/playing for Australia.

What about the people thrown out and falsely accused? What stands up in court? ACB would be open to being taken to court. It needs the investigation completed and if found no case then India need to respond, investigations need to be conclusive ....there have been multiple witnesses...even Indian supporters.
Throwing it out there and when it doesnt stick wander off is how you would like it to go but it doesnt work that way

The cognitive dissonance of Aus fans is quite spectacular here. To the left they shout, "there's no evidence of a racist comment, Siraj has clearly made this up". Then they turn to the right and decry actual evidence, "this is just something Smith does, nothing in it, move along". :uhoh:

There's some talk of Paine losing the captaincy for the final test, no doubt idle speculation, but got me to thinking who would be next up. Considering Smith isn't likely to be in the running, who else do you think could step up?

It's Pat C ... but i don't think they want a bowler.
And then it was Travis Head ... so that's not there.

And not Warner
Or Smith
Or Labbie

And Wade seems like a bit of a cnut

So it's Will P or Cameron G

Cameron G it is ....

Or it then depends on who do what with. Wade to keep means another batter in? Carey in to keep?

I like Finch as a captain - but he's not a test cricket...

He means Smith scratching the guard which isn’t in dispute, just the motivation behind it - i.e. one of his idiosyncrasies which he does all the time vs. something else.

I don’t see the Siraj accusation playing out any other way than the investigation finding no evidence of racial slurs. That said, it would be hard to prove that Siraj didn’t think he heard things even if they weren’t said. It would be very difficult to prove that he knew he had just been heckled (without anything racial) unless he decided to admit that.

Have the Indian complained about Smith scratching around? It's not like he did it during an over or anything and I doubt it pissed Pant off who, going on the video, asked the umpire for his guard as any batsman does at the start of a session.

Don't put a big bet on the test in Brisbane going ahead.

Apparently, in India, it's OK to describe a person by skin colour. Not racist at all. At least if the person is black. It is interesting that the alleged SCG slurs, which only Siraj seems to have heard, involved a combined skin colour and an animal reference. "Black stallion" anyone? Some of the tweet comments recorded here (in 2020) are interesting, whether or not Sharma did actually use a racist term to describe Sammy. I guess a different set of rules apply in India or something.

https://www.sportskeeda.com/cricket/fan ... sammy-2014
While Ishant Sharma may have used the term 'Kaluu' in good humour, and may not have intended a racial slur, the timing of this post resurfacing has caused many people to assume otherwise.

While some netizens assumed that the word is a racial slur towards the West Indian, others have come out in support of Ishant, saying that the term is just a regular word which need not be taken as offence. [sic]
There is no doubt that the word is a derogatory term used for black people in India. Basically, it's something like the N-word in English.

I searched but didn't find any comment by the BCCI or Viraat Kohli on the Sharma-Sammy issue.

One wonders if the faux outrage about the unproven Siraj allegations will be parlayed into another reason not to play the Brisbane test? I say another, because the BCCI already played the race card against the Qld government a week ago.

https://cricketaddictor.com/cricket-new ... me-remark/
a BCCI official has further added fuel to the fire by reacting strongly to Queensland’s Health Shadow Minister Ros Bates’ recent comment. The official said that Bates’ comment was boarded on racism’ and ‘seemed rife with hostility’. He also said that the prospect of not playing in Brisbane is still on the cards.

Reacting to the news of India’s reservation over traveling to Queensland, Bates had said: “If the Indians don’t want to play by the rules, don’t come.”
The pampered and precious Indian cricketers are already on record whining about having to comply with bubble regulations. If you read the Indian press, they think life is going on as normal in Sydney and the hotel bubble has all been a ploy to unsettle the Indian team.

It is abundantly clear that the Indian team does not want to play the Brisbane test - they don't like the bubble, they have lots of injuries (including to 4 or 5 of their best bowlers now, depending if Ashwin is fit) which might contribute to a series loss, and they are accusing some unidentified spectator of the sort of racist taunt they use in India against black people and going to town with it. As soon as they arrived in Brisbane they were complaining about the hotel, because it didn't conform with their sense of entitlement.
The Indian cricket board (BCCI) and Cricket Australia (CA) are sorting out the issues faced by Indian team upon reaching the hotel in Brisbane on Tuesday. The Indian Indian players were first informed that there won’t be any any room service and housekeeping facilities...

Where is the evidence?
He means Smith scratching the guard which isn’t in dispute, just the motivation behind it - i.e. one of his idiosyncrasies which he does all the time vs. something else.

I don’t see the Siraj accusation playing out any other way than the investigation finding no evidence of racial slurs. That said, it would be hard to prove that Siraj didn’t think he heard things even if they weren’t said. It would be very difficult to prove that he knew he had just been heckled (without anything racial) unless he decided to admit that.
dont think you will get Griey to understand that. "it is or it isn't"
Noncy's view of the world.

Cricketer on the boundary has a tough day.
Fans are sledging all day.
Player happens to be non white.
Player is over the sledging, complains to the umpire that he heard someone say black so n so but no one did.
Umpire stops play.
Ground security remove slegders, some innocents get removed, little boy cries cos his daddy was one yet did nothing wrong, doesnt get his heroes signature at lunch.
Cricket authority investigates.
Witnesses, some sitting right in front of those thrown out, claim there was nothing untoward said.
Footage played also cant confirm racist taunt.
Cricket world in uproar, labels country, its people all racist.
Half of NZ pile in on rugby Internet forums for a schadenfreude orgy causing sites to crash.
Cricket authority finds no issue.
Patrons sue cricket authority.
Everyone walks away like it never happened.
Next month in another test series another cricket player in the outer calls the umpire over after getting a hard time on the boundary saying he was called a black so n so
24/7 internet insomniac punter calls it a win for the non white man
rinse and repeat.

Is you calling me a Paedo some sort of code for you and your Paedo friends to meet up and do your thing ? Seriously I would love to know why you've started calling me a Paedo. Maybe you know something that should be shared with the bored

Exactly. Smith is in his own world and I've never seen any batsman not take their guard again after a break in play.
Maybe the conspricy should include the groundsman for painting over the mark during the break as well

He thinks he's being terribly clever, because if called out he'll claim that the name "noncy" is a play on your moniker, anonymous. Of course we all know what he's doing. He's the White Mamba y'know? He strikes when attacked.

So why has Paine and also Smith apologised for his childish behaviour if there wasn't any?

And then it was Travis Head ... so that's not there.

And not Warner
Or Smith
Or Labbie

And Wade seems like a bit of a cnut

So it's Will P or Cameron G

Cameron G it is ....

Or it then depends on who do what with. Wade to keep means another batter in? Carey in to keep?

I like Finch as a captain - but he's not a test cricket...
I wouldn’t have minded have Finch there in the first two tests. He’s a good captain and a decent bloke. He’s a Davie Warner type player but no reason why he cannot be an effective test opener.

Yep - but after searching I may have gotten the reasons for the apologies mixed up. So many reasons...
