England coach Moores wants stump mics turned off
August 2, 2007 3:11pm CST
After everything that happened in the 2nd test match between England and India, Peter Moores, England's coach, believes that stump microphones should be turned down during tests so players can sledge each other without the audience hearing... Give your thoughts on this??

yaa i agreed with you. And i dunt understand y the fans shouldn't listen? Every fan should know what players are doing in the field. they should themselves decide who is right and who is wrong rather than listening to varied statements of cricket officials..

Yeah right and then next thing he will want the stumps placed behind the wicket keeper i think this is all because the poms feel guilty that they have said thing on the feild which they should not have and have set a bad example for this game of cricket whic is termed a gentlemans game and yes they also want to continue it but they do not want the media to cover it and show them bad in the public well i will like to tell them that either face the brickbacks or shut up or improve

Sporting spirit with which the game used to be played once upon a time has now been taken over by aggrasiveness and anger. Players doesn't mind even hurting other also. This can be seen by the beamers, bouncers and short pitches delievered during the game. The days of bodyline is coming back. Sledging is ok but players should be having the control on them and use it for constructive oputput as Zaheer did. But there are not so matured ones also like sreesant.
