Really bad move by BCCI. They are selling out on bhajji and giving away their moral high ground that they have acquired now. Also, there is so much bad blood now between aussies and indians. if the indians loose or perform badly in tour match, aussie media will screw them badly.

symonds is not taking part in ramlila here. symonds face has been used on hanuman's body to make fun. and did you seriously miss out on the analogy of being called a monkey and making him look like hanuman?

Oh yes.

BTW: Under normal circumstances, Bhajji MIGHT not have played at Perth to accommodate an extra seamer. But now it seems that he will definately play irrespective of the conditions.

High hopes,i guess..but it'll be fun to watch India get even with the Aussies. With all the rucus created, I hope the men in blue with more josh & steal the next 2 games. As for the 20-20 after that..hmm,that'll be another interesting game!

I dont expect Indian team to win at waca under best of circumstances. and now, indian team is completely distracted.

Aussies must be feeling "done in" with bucknor out, bhajji ban likely to be overturned and hogg likely to be banned..they will "come hard" at india. Let us see if our players can standup to the sledging pressure and short stuff. And unless someone can really drill some sense in aussies, i expect more bad blood.

This is going to get uglier...as they say - picture abhi baaki hai.

In all probability the Aussies will take out every bit of anger/resentment on the field,and show that their performance does the talking.

And then Sehwag will launch a counter attack and score 195 in a day...... Then I will wake up to see Aussies 350 for 3 after day 1 :(

Pawar couldnt do a damn thing when Ponting pushed him aside in Mumbai - and now he wants to be the ICC chief and is being too soft.

Another idea - let Pawar become ICC chief and then we play Australia , create charges of abuse and ban Ponting , Symonds and company

Why Ponting hates Harbhajan?

The theory that is going around is Ponting wanted to score runs in the series & so he wanted to get Harbhajan out of the way. So he scripted the racism story, with Symonds as the victim & his chums, Hayden & Gilchrist as witnesses . He almost succeded in getting Harbhajan out of the series but an alert Indian public with the help of BCCI poured water on his ambition .
