The Australians are not saints. In fact, they have mastered the fine art of sledging and mental disintegration of opposition cricketers, both on and off the field. The International Cricket Council (ICC) is merely trying to defend the Australians for their misdemeanours by blaming India. Having said that, one cannot single out the Indians as models of impeccable behaviour either, because players like Sourav Ganguly, Harbhajan Singh, Sreesanth, etc. have all been pulled up by the ICC match referees on various counts of poor conduct in the past. If the players behave themseves on and off the field and understand their responsibilties as the sporting and goodwill ambassadors of their countries, we will witness fewer incidents of misbehaviour on and off the field in the future.

With a touch of malice it reflects the ground reality.

Years back Mike Procter the holy Patriach of Referees said "go on boys, slegde on, I love it" when someone asked him about abuses hurled by McGrath at Asian players.

The Aussies of late seem to say one line which simply reflects their parochial stand.

Any "chatter or banter" is inevitable on field. What does this chatteer and banter include - invectives, abuses, expletives, personal sexual choices, private parts, immediate family members, close friends in team and so on. This is all fine and absolutely okay. Also the Aussies (players, ex players, media, experts) all of them say its fine and should be kept to only the field.

Anyone complaining of an Aussie player using expletives is immediately called soft, sissy and kiddish.

The moment an Asian player responds it becomes "over the line".
