Cheating at cricket

Seems some of the Aussies have admitted to cheating at cricket by getting dirt to stick on the ball after touching sellotape hidden under their shirts.

Bit foolish really as everything is filmed in cricket so they could hardly deny it.

As cricket is a major sport in Australia even their PM is critical of their actions, looks like a few will be facing the sack.

Re: Cheating at cricket

"Men caught cheating while thwacking their balls!!!" - That headline could be used for many a scandal... Funny

Re: Cheating at cricket

Unforgivable, but we all have to take responsibility for our actions and these guys are going to lose out big time.

Re: Cheating at cricket

I don't follow sport (very boring if you ask me!!), but I'm guessing this might give the UK a chance at actually winning something with the cricket if the aussies are punished for cheating...Grin

Re: Cheating at cricket

"W G Grace, the most famous Victorian of all, who virtually invented cricket as we know it, was also a terrible cheat. Replacing the bails after a bowler had disturbed his wicket, he carried on regardless with the words: “They’ve come to watch me bat, not you bowl.” 

Let's not be to harsh with the Australians, after all it seems we started it!

Re: Cheating at cricket

So now we know why we keep losing to the Aussies at cricket.

The word 'sport' no longer exists in the true meaning of the word where money is involved.

Re: Cheating at cricket

When we have a credible cricket team, there'll be grounds for complaint against the Aussies. 

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

@gleneagles

Not wrong there, money has always poisoned sport.

No doubt there was a lot of skulduggery going on at those chariot races........ and don't get us started on cycling. But it's never right even when we do it ourselves - hypocritical maybe, but never right.

Oops, double post whilst editing. Damn these early morning touch screens!
