Should the Aussie team stop the DIRTY mind games?

The whole world knows that the Aussie cricket team is very smart at sledging. For the most part, the opponents have remainded silent - right from Amla being labelled a'terrorist' to Muralidharan being labelled a 'chucker'. It is really tough on the opponents when someone stands near you and says how you and people from your country smell or calls you names that involves your family. The Indian team seem to be giving some back to the Australian team. The irony is that when the aussies admit they are involved in 'gamesmanship' and 'mental disintegration', the response that comes from other teams are claimed to be 'racist'. Do you think that it is time for the Aussies to stopm these dirty games and prove to the world that they can win matches with talent and not with sledging? Thanks.

I think Aussies have been involved in sledging for a long long time now. They are now cribbing when other teams are doing the same to them like what India is doing to them. Now they cry that other teams are being racist etc. That shows that when they were enjoying the benefits of the same everything seemed to be fine, now that they are facing the same aggression they are complaining!! Cheers! Ram

I think the first time the aussies got what they were giving was when Saurav, former Indian captain, gave it back to Steve Waugh. And from then onwards, they have tried to act like cry-babies making one complaint or another against a team or ht epeople. Thanks a lot for the response.

I think the Aussies are displaying a great sense of IMMATURITY and think anything they do is civilized and for gamemanship or aggression and anything others do is racist or unsportsmanlike! They need to review their own lives and cricket history and realise that they are the biggest offenders in the history of the game and just about every sporsman or sports fan will agree to that. I dont expect Symonds or Ponting to read this, but if you do - please realise that you are probably the most unpopular team in the world for your sportsmanship!

That is true pitstop. Sledging and Gamesmanship are never qualities that are meant for a good sportsman. Thanks for the comment.
