Should Indian Cricket team continue Australia Tour?
January 9, 2008 2:45am CST
There has been a lot of furore in the country and the media after the recent developments happening in criket. Harbhajan Singh, the spinner of India team was suspended for three games for making a racist comment to Andrew Symonds in the second Test in Sydney. Umpire Steve Bucknor, who angered India with his decisions in Sydney, has been replaced for that game by Billy Bowden. I didn't like the biased and unfair decision taken against Harbhajan but can't pass strong comments as know one knows what dialogues were exchanged between the two players except them. But still I think India should not continue the tour in Australia. What you have to say on this?

Yeah, right. And the latest development ia that the International Cricket Council tried to take firmer control of the Bollyline affair yesterday when Malcolm Speed, the chief executive, suggested that India had a duty to accept the findings of the appeal into Harbhajan Singh's three-Test ban for an alleged racist jibe against the Australia all-rounder Andrew Symonds. India have made veiled threats to call off their Australia tour if the hearing does not clear Harbhajan of racial abuse against Symonds. It remains doubtful, however, whether the hearing will be heard before the end of the series.

infact it is not the right decision that we should not play in austrlia,even after our demands are fulfilled by the ICC.because in that condition, we lose our reputation in the cricket world,and, in that respect we are dioing the same thing what the aussies players did....?

This entire incident has been blown out of proportion. India and Australia need to work this out. Having India go home early would leave to much undone. I am sure it is simply a misunderstanding that blown up by a bored media. Granted I don't think Ricky Ponting or Andrew Symonds should have put a complaint in but they did. Someone needs to stand up and be a man about all of this. They all need to say yes I did wrong I have learn a lesson from this experience and it won't happen again. If India goes home now there will never be an opportunity for this to get resolved. It is bad enough that this has gone on for as long as what it has.
