Harbhajan has been badly booed continuously by the Australian crowd and continuously taunted by the Australian players. Symonds, Ponting and co are definitely not popular in India these days. Will they be booed when they come to play here next The IPL is more of local players too, but I'm wondering if there are any more international matches will these Australians gett booed by India crowds?

banning them is a little extreme as technically they are always on the 'right' side - they never get into any legal problem!

We'll just wait and watch. The Indian crowds can be very sporting and at times can be very nasty!

Well, my take on the topic is that they are likely to get some support from the states they will be playing for , but they might get some boos from the rest of the crowds.To put it to perspective, getting booed is kind of losing it's sting.Harbhajan ,Sreeshant and a few others are still being booed during the games , but they are taking it sportingly and not complaining like Symonds did . I guess even if Symonds and Ponting get booed , it won't be made into a big issue after what's been happening in Australia.However, the presence of Aussies in IPL this year is still uncertain and if 2009 be the year they play first time in the IPL , then I guess things will be forgotten and people would have moved on.

Hi, What you have talked about is a possibility given the way tensions have been between India and Australia in the present series. However, there might not be that great a public during all IPL Matches .So,the situation could be prevented.

That probably won't be the case. The way it's building up, I sense big crowds during the IPL matches.

Well I think they should be when they come to India. It is very clearly seen that whenever an Indian player performance during the matches they are booed and that is not at all a sportsman spirit. When other team come to our country we do not treat them with his bad attitude. Whereas we are getting a very bad attitude and also very bad behaviour on the Australians and the Australian citizens. This is not at all what you call good sportsman spirit. Not even the crowds but even the players were so close to the team at it and behaving himself that fashion it clearly shows that the not at all interested in the integrity of the team. The only thing they want to do is win matches no matter how custom and that is the only reason they misbehave every time they perform better than them. They are not actually able to rise is the fact that they are over played by our team was probably a more skilled players and that is the reason why we are winning against them so very consistently.
