Ponting and the Australian team are fascist cricketers hell bent on emerging victorious at any cost. In an unequal world if they were warriors carrying a gun then they will pillage, plunder and rape if need be because to win is more important than playing the game in the spirit.
Congratulations to Australiam Ricky Ponting and the Australian public. The Aussies like to win. Who doesn’t? Indians too like to win. Aussies plays it hard. Like Waugh said, a bit of banter, a friendly word here or there, only arouses the passion for your game and country. Agreed.
Sledging is a valid act of in the winning and all teams, even tat plays gully cricket indulges in some for of verbal banter.
Winning matches and winning it honestly are two different things. The umpires reminded one of Pakistani umpires in the late 70’s or 80’s when it was almost certain that the local team always wins. So does Australia. By playing great cricket.
But no more. Ponting and his bunch of achievers are nothing but a bunch of cheats and thieves. The captain of any sport is supposed to represent and uphold certain ideals…of gamesmanship, integrity and honesty. Ponting’s desire to succeed has robbed him of basic cricket ethics. For him cricket is like the Foster’s advertisement. It is played only by Australians, for Australians and in Australia.
The Australian captain is dishonest, a slave to victory, has no gamesmanship and is defending the indefensible. Te evidence is for all to see. All hail te new God of Victory. Do anything but win. Lie, lie lie again, lie in face of evidence.
All hail the new captain who encourages you to cheat, lie, gang up, intimidate and lift the cup.
