Ranatunga, a former Sri Lankan captain, called for a ban on sledging and
hoped the Australians would learn their lessons from this controversy.

"Australia have had these issues with some touring sides," Ranatunga told
Reuters. "History shows whenever they get it back, they struggle. Sometimes
they also need to learn a lesson. I'm a great believer they should stop all
shouting in the grounds."

WHAT WAS SAID

The conversation between Australian players and Harbhajan Singh that was
picked up by the Channel Nine stump microphone:

Symonds to Harbhajan: "Go and yell at your teammates. You called me a monkey
again?"

Hayden: "Twice."

Hayden approaches Harbhajan, saying: "You've got a witness now, champ.
That's the last time."

Harbhajan: "No listen, he started it."

Hayden: "It doesn't matter, mate. It's racial vilification. It's a shit word
and you know it."

Clarke then approaches umpire Mark Benson, saying: "It's not the first time.
He done it in India and got into strife. That's the second time he's done
it."

Ponting walks up to Benson and gestures towards umpire Steve Bucknor,
saying: "Go and tell him. Go and tell him straight away."

Hayden and Clarke testified they have not heard Harbhajan use the word
"monkey".

The Channel 9 stump microphone didnt pickup the word monkey.

What the hell are you still ranting, whinging and whining about ?

The 2005 Ashes tour proved that the Australians wilt when the
opposition give it back to them.

Perhaps then Arjuna could explain why his captaincy record against Aus
is
7 tests 0 wins 3 draws 4 losses -> noting that it's from 89 to 95
which is before the Aus team was all conquering.

in one dayers
22 matches 8 wins 14 losses

Actually it shows that if people play good cricket they're in with a
chance.

Any intelligent person ( I guess that rules you and most Indian rsc's out )
know he said it. Even that Kiwi Idiot said " probably said it isnt good
enough "

And if you all looked in your hearts you would know that he said it as well

this is really strange: it is not in our hearts that we need to look
into, it is the stump mic recordings we need to hear. symonds is a
lying and cheating shit and he could easily have made this up, in
*** with pointless to ramp up the mental disintegration plan.
you need evidence to punish someone for racist abuse, and you don't
have that evidence. live with it.

Including a WC final.

Remind us of that result again, Hamish.

Oh, England played good cricket. They also gave to the Aussies what
they had been dishing out for years.

But surely the Sydney Test just gone shows that playing good cricket
isn't always good enough
