Playing with yaa balls

Isnt this a joke on the Australian cricket team.

Its a bit of a silly rule that its ok to rub the bejesus out of the ball on your pants to affect the balls behaviour

Yet they went out of their way to scuff the ball up.

Simply ban any rubbing of the ball.
That way you know you cant be touching it to modify its behaviour.

Bowl the ball
Batter hits it

Fielder tries to catch it
None of this 5 blokes rub the bejesus out of the ball before it gets back to the bowler.
Or try find a way of scuffing it up

SIMPLE RULE

No rubbing of the balls :snipersmile:

Bowl "commando" style.

Seriously, dedicate one camera to.be on the ball at all times. Knowing you WILL get caught would be a deterrent. They alraedy have one camera at the bowling crease to pick up overstep no balls.

But yeah, prett dumb call given the numbers of official cameras on the oval, let alone unofficial ones (fans).

I really can't imagine how uncomfortable it would be to play half a days cricket with a chunk of sandpaper grinding your nuts to dust.... :shock: :crazyeyes:

Re: Playing with yaa balls

not one of these top flight bowlers who always notice the slightest bit of fluff or misplaced dirt on a ball, query any slight intolerance of the spherical qualities of the red missile in their hands, noticed that the ball was coming back to them in such a changed state????? give me a break. there is much more to all this!

Re: Playing with yaa balls

This incident is now being 'managed 'by the sporting industry. The public indignation was severe, yet the sporting commentators seemed to stumble to even mention the words 'cheating' .... Yes Smith has lost a fortune, but it was his fortune to lose...he knew what was at stake, so why didn't he protect his income and standing within the sport. Warner's ball tamper antics too, plus his involvement with the culture of aggressive sledging, Leadership Group? yeah right.......the game needs a shake up and CA had an opportunity to make a bolder statement to rid this game of bad practices...but I think they stopped short. :oops:


Now dont get me started on the AFL drugs policy..... :bad-words:

Latest word is that CA have approached the Catholic Church for guidance on appropriate punishment. Apparently they reckon they can get off more lightly by going with a mob who consider ball tampering is absolutely fine.
