So yes, Harbhajan may have given 250 send off's but from a distance and hence never such a bad send off as given by Mushfiq today.
Most of the people are not getting the difference between being 2 meters away or 2 inches away from a batsmen.
And yes it is always a no issue if the miscreant is from your team.
Guys.. I see this as our players growing few pairs.. and I feel there is nothing wrong with that. I was wondering when Naeem was turned down by the umpire and how he went back and kicked in front of him was a bit "beyadobi"... but this only proves our players are growing in confidence.
We needs players who are self confident... sick of being nice guys.. remember.. "nice guys finish last"
