Default Extreme Rudeness by Aussie Cricketers

Aussie team's behaviour is currently being investigated by Cricket Australia after Damien Martyn pushed him off the stage to pose for photos with trophy. Ponting apparently was impatient by the long ceremony and pointed his forefinger at the chief to give away the trophy.

Such behaviour is an extreme show of arrogance which is no doubt dissapointing from the top team in the world

To my surprize, I thought the Australians were over joyous. The match had been decided long time back. When the rain ended and the two batsmen went to bat the match was in the bag.

When the final runs were scored, Ponting's jumping, screeming looked out of place. May be they won the ICC CT for the first time but the activity to me was a bit over the top.

Cricket Australia to investigate claims
Cricket Australia said on Tuesday it would investigate reports of rude behaviour by the Australian team after their Champions Trophy win in India. Australia were taken to task in Indian newspapers for pushing Sharad Pawar, the BCCI chief, off the presentation dais after they beat West Indies in Sunday's final at the Brabourne Stadium.
The Indian public have shown their displeasure at the reports:

Unless their dominance ends, they'll remain immutably fastidious.

While visiting Bangladesh, they over-rode umpire's decision in the field, and enforced their own decision about giving our batsmen out. They intimidated, verbally abused and even purposefully and physically hit the umpire in the field. They told the umpire to stand back from his mark by 15-20 feet while bowling. Sadly: the umpire did !

Compared to that, this is nothing.

I miss the strongest Australian defender "Sydney". Where is he? Haven't heard from him in a while. Will be fun to hear from him about this.

Sorry guys... but nothing much to expect from Indian media reports. Emnitei indian ra akhon champ trophy theke out hoye jawai boroi ahoto. Now why go on to take the aussies 'ak-hat'!

I would really be far less bothered about media reports in india .. because the aussies hardly have a reputation of being arrogant.. like some of our neighbours!

India will get their payback in March 18, 2007. Oooh! Powerful BCCI!!! Please include Ganguly for that game. All the arrogants would get equal treatment. Muli baash!!!

As for Australia, they have not crossed the boundary of arrogance as of yet. But they are flirting with it. Once they do, they will be humbled also.

Default This is how Champions behave when they get the Trophy

Mumbai, November 6: When Australia captain Ricky Ponting tapped BCCI president Sharad Pawar on his shoulder and gestured with his forefinger last night, suggesting that the smiling Union Minister hand over the Champions Trophy, he would never have expected to hit headlines.
Today, that uncouth gesture drew flak from all sides with batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar terming it “unpleasant”, chairman of selectors Dilip Vengsarkar calling it “appalling” and BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah saying it may have been “unintentional” but certainly “not in good taste”.
Pawar, in return, had gestured back to Ponting, asking him to step up to receive the trophy. Then, a bunch of Australian players, apparently overjoyed at receiving the one title that has eluded them all these years, virtually pushed Pawar off the dais so that they could pose with the trophy for the flashbulbs.
Ponting, who in the past has been put under watch by Cricket Australia for his on-field behaviour, had already crossed the line on Sunday night by publicly backing umpire Darrell Hair who was sacked for the ball-tampering fiasco involving Pakistan at the Oval in August.
“I’d be disappointed for him (Hair)... He’s done what he believed was right at the time for the good of the game,” Ponting said after his team beat West Indies by eight wickets at the Brabourne.
Tendulkar termed the Pawar incident as “uncalled for” behaviour against a person who was dear to all cricketers.
In response to a query at a press conference, Tendulkar said, “I wasn’t watching the proceedings because I was travelling, but from what I heard (from others) it was an unpleasant experience which was uncalled for (action)... Firstly, it should not have happened. It’s important to show respect to the person who is so dear to cricketers and is involved with cricket. So it’s good that we avoid such incidents.”
Board secretary Shah, who sought to play down the incident, told this paper, “I also saw it yesterday and watched the video footage today. I personally I feel it was unintentional. But it was not in good taste.” Vengsarkar, former Test legend, told this paper, “You expect such behaviour from uneducated people. Cricketers touring abroad are ambassadors of the game. If they wanted to pose for photographs, they could have politely requested him. This is appalling.” Anshuman Gaekwad struck a conciliatory tone, saying, “They had won the Trophy for the first time, and the team was very happy. They wouldn’t have done it knowingly, so it shouldn’t be taken seriously. But looking at the gravity of the matter, they should have been a little more careful,” he said.

Yeah, the way she stresses it's an insult to her "country" is such an exaggeration... granted what the Aussies did is disgraceful, but I think the Indian media is trying to make it an issue of national pride just because they got kicked out of CT.

Thanks Sovik for the video. It is little bit funny but it does not seem to me that Aussie insulted Power. Indian press has a very big mouth...they always do that...no surprise.

Well, English press has a bigger mouth. Its not about that. I am sure Australia would have made a bigger issue out of it if Ganguly or Tendulkar pushes CA chief out of the podium.

People already upset about Australia's unconditional support for Hair and now this incident to top that. Aussies should be careful of how they deal with South Asian cricket teams coz they dont and never had a good reputation here with all the allegation of racism and bad umpiring. Or should I say racist umpiring?

We should stop giving Aussies the VIP treatment they usually get when they come here in BD. India should stop it aswell. I doubt they even go through the proper immigration process in the Airport. Should make them wait in the long queue and make em pick and carry their own luggage to hotel room.

I am sick of our officials treating them like the old imperial British masters.

After all our players dont get any special treatment from them. Its time we stop doing so aswell.

In the mean time, let me enjoy as much as I can.
