There is finally some talk about the Tour being called off. Apparently there's a $2 million something cost to it.

Pay the convicts, I say. Throw them some extra money too - like you'd throw change to performing monkeys.

There is no price for National Pride.

Also while throwing change racially abuse them.

BCCI suspends tour of Australia

Looks like thay have suspended it only until the Bhajji suspension is revoked.

Awesome news.

No need to pay them a single paisa. Let them do whatever they can. Worst come, they can cause a loss to us by not showing up in next india tour.

Also, india should convince SL to skip VB series. Just ask Ranatunga and he will happily oblige. IND-SL can play a series in SL instead...and aussies can watch it on TV sitting in their insect infested homes.

One of the things BCCI would like to do next is ask ICC to annul the match played at Sydney. But will they???

Tendulkar is the man.

He is not only a great batsman but also a great colleague and a proud Indian. Its wonderfull to see him supporting his colleague and standing up for our respect.

Arrogant Ponting must be fired - Cricket - Sport - smh.com.au

So will Ponting be sacked? Well his integrity will help him sail through! Shame shame.

BTW Peter Roebuck is one of the most respected cricket reports/critics in Australia and he also has some harsh words for Ponting's men.

Well some rule in the ICC says that the touring team can pull out and get away without paying any fine if the concerned govt. of the touring team asks the team to pull out! So I hope that the Indian govt. asks the BCCI to recall the team which is a very big possibility as I see it. I hope this happens.

Also, I hope that the sponsors in India for Ponting, Gilchrist and Brett Lee sack them.

Well instead of paying them money why not send them BANANAS. Send symonds the longer once which we in south call Nendra Balle.

@LLL I wholly agree with ya. I feel that Ranatunga was a gutsy guy and ganguly is kinda similar. It would have been a different situation if ranatunga was in the indian side in kumble's place.

Ponting has become a bit of a joke. He still maintains that he believes that the catch off Dhoni was good...and that we must not question his integrity. I'm sorry, but this man is off his rockers!

Quoting from Prem Panicker's rediff writeup:

Why Ponting should be banned

which also shows a reader picture of the "catch" Ponting took.


Peter Roebuck's article is pretty scathing. To quote:

The only surprising part of it is that the Indians have not packed their bags and gone home. There is no justice for them in this country, nor any manners.

LOL! It is indeed good to see that Tendulkar is supporting Bhaji.

I think this is a good chance for Sharad Pawar himself to give it back to Mr Punter and his bunch of monkey brained (some of them monkey faced too) cricketers..

Mr Punter is so full of SH&T.. Where is his humility and integrity when this happened - VideoDubba - Aussies pushing Sharad Pawar away
