Post by Danny on Mon Jan 07, 2008 11:53 am

India Vs Australlia tour called of by India team. Yet more contraversial events in cricket. Not sure what happeneed but heard it involved racism. Anyway not good for the game. What do you think of these events, please make sure they are suitable.

Alright heres what happened.

Harbhajan singh called andrew symonds a monkey. (going back to the heated ODI series in india.) But india say singh called him a 'Maa Ki' which is his native language for Motherf*****. Singh was charged and given a 3 test match ban.

India said that they would pull out of the tour if the ban was not taken back and steve bucknor was still umpiring the remaining tests in the series. The ICC sacked bucknor for the remainder of the series. and replaced him with billy bowden. Mark Benson was only umpiring the first 2 tests and was to be replaced with asad rauf and the start of the 3rd test anyway.

Now Brad Hogg is now facing a hearing and the possibility of a 2-4 test match ban or a 4-8 ODI ban ( the same level of charge as singh). He called Anil Kumble and Mahendra singh dhoni "bastards". The indians say it was derogatory of their race. but i cant see how the word 'bastard' can carry any offense towards a race.

India has appealed Singh's charge and if the hearing for him doesnt take place before the start of the 3rd test in Perth (the 16th of january) Singh is free to play. Brad hogg's hearing still does not have a date aswel as singh's appeal.


As of hogg's charge i think has been blown up way too much. I mean if Singh really did call symonds a Motherf***** just in a different language hogg doesnt have a charge to face. If he gets banned it will show just how much thigns are messed up. As for the tour it is still going ahead.

Good news they have finally seen sense and decided to withdraw their threat!
Personally I think Singh should get a 3 match suspension and Hogg should get a 1 match suspension
