After the Lehman incident, there seem to be so many different views on
not just what he said , but what racism is, what sleding is etc.
Im just interested to know what is considered acceptable sledging/name
calling/talking on the cricket (sports) field in your countries. I had
an aussie friend who went to England to play lower county level
cricket, and when he sledged an oppenent (nothing racist...just
aggressive), was told off by his own team for being unsportsmanlike.
What can the players say to each other that isnt considered going over
the top? Do Nth Indians make racist comments to sth indians? In SL
schoolboy cricket, would a Sinhalese make a racist comment to a Tamil
(or vice versa) but still shake his hand after the game. What about
SA? or is it considered too controversial? Does anybody say anything
at all in junior/lower levels of the game?
If this topic has been done to death, i apologize, but i dont recall
seeing more than a passing reference to it.
