We all indinas are very much disturbed how wrong umpiring decision have costed us a match in Australia.Above all after Australian palyer behaved badly in field, they accuse one of our player and taht person got banned for 3 matches. Now there is a memeber who started the discussion saying Australia has proved india can't stand in auastralia. Not only that he is telling so many thing against auastralia and i think it is a racial abuse. My request to mylot is that pls look into this matter and also do something so taht nobody uses such bad way in this forum to act against any country.He was even justifying that umpires were correct to be biased with Australia and so on.

I am not a fan of cricket, but have been watching it with my husband as he does enjoy it. Give me Football any day! One thing I am annoyed regarding this recent situation is that when a sport brings racial slurs into it this is where the fun goes out of sport. After all it is not very sportsman like to call someone names. Should the player have been banned for 3 matches? Not in my husbands' eyes. One has to understand that us Aussies are and have been for a very long time lay back, and enjoy a good time. Those days seem to have gone as we keep on hearing things like you have stated but the old saying "turn the other cheek" does not seem to apply anymore. But must say if it was turned around and said to the Indians what would their reaction be? Just curious!

Must be a tribe from Kangaroo. Let us not worry much about their utterances. We have seen it in Television, close-ups too. It is very clear that the umpires were influenced by the kickbacks to ensure aussies victory. Probably Aussies could not gulp the defeat they had at India in T20 matches.

that's terrible subha. did you report this matter to myLot already? did you give that discussion a (-) rating? that is such an unfair thing to do. Australia has already won and that member still wants to add insult to injury? does that member hate Indians or what? if his team Australia had won, and the other team fought fair and square, then at least what that person can do is show respect to the losing team. maybe he doesn't know about the "sportsmanship" word yet. maybe he didn't encounter it when he was still in school. and maybe he didn't learn any good manners back in school. i am not an Indian but it really annoys me when people discriminate other people. i mean, we are all different and unique individuals but it doesn't mean that we can insult anyone because of that differences. i hope that discussion will be deleted soon.

I am agreed with you. I don't know what happned to Australians about behaviour and surprised also Umpire decision. What happening in the ground and what story want to wright Australian in Sydny. Really shameful and shame Australian players. I think now Indian players must come back. What you think??

Hi Subha, Sorry to hear that, and I dislike those people who is saying something bad towards another country, what's worse, they don't even know the truth but are just saying something by its appearance without knowing the inside story. I strongly recommend mylot as well to punish those guys if they are acting against some culture etc. Kind regards, Andy

My god out of all the racial mess so many others have endured. Your upset over a game and a few crumbly words. Why don't you try to live in other peoples shoes. no one is right to be racist against your or I or anyone. But golly ho your whining over a game. Did any of the players get hanged of beaten with objects. How about cut open and left to die on dirt roads. Did your game players have to sleep on the ground and cook for the masters? You should toss this right out the window and be grateful the worlds were not whipping sticks. Sticks and stones may hurt my bones. But words will never hurt me... yeah right.
