It is the first day of Cardiff, the heat of the summer Ashes Test. Advanced to David Warner bats, wild, there is progress in the right crowd booed the oil well. James Anderson bowls the first delivery Australia devil beats the outside edge. Words are exchanged. Now ask yourself questions egeyi: You just electricity, Yo, back of the neck of the gladiatorial sport conflict occurs or sullies the reputation violate the spirit of the game loutishness what hair I have witnessed the exhibition?
Self-proclaimed moral arbiters of cricket has to think the latter. Among the best are clumsy attempts to connect to the death of a field action at Phillip Hughes who triggered the latest bout of navel line of sports but Jonathan Agnew, BBC cricket correspondent.
Other openers his Indian opponent when requesting an “English”, stacked in mourning since before during the conduct of modern cricket tri-series match in Melbourne on Sunday Rohit Sharma execution of Warner. That conflicts can break out into overt violence in the field of aggression upcoming World Cup, create a column for Cricinfo, I had a fear of the New Zealand captain Martin Crowe stimulation.
Darren Lehmann, the Australian coach, it was it would not inhibit other members of his team’s confrontational attitude and he’s very clear this week Warner. “David is an aggressive character and we support it,” he said .ICC beyond the decision or if the line is not in the spirit of our game, “[It will] we fall, we always just the way we play, it’s pretty close I’m going to see-saw, but we’re OK, do not we pass it. “
Agnew, among many others, clearly I think that line is crossed so often in the recent past. However, the field operation is 20, ’30 really bad than 100 degrees? The answer would be ‘no’. WG Grace was certainly not comply with the “Spirit of Cricket” They were the last thing on the mind of Dennis Lillee and Javed Miandad when squared up to each other during Australia’s Test against Pakistan in Perth in 1981.
In short, the grip of a moral panic that supply current fall fantasy cricket sport brutality. Oman modest paper about the state of the game adds fuel to the fire fictitious. Russell Jackson still unfair to drag the highlighted player condolences to his friends and teammates in the debate on the sled writing here last week.
As Agnew did, be bad-tempered, ram the point home, using the tragic death of his claims and eloquent praise Michael Clarke Hughes. This is exactly what he Radio Times, what did you do in his interview when he said:
“I am ready to hold that spot on the street throw from Michael Clarke speeches Australia Michael Clarke fuse memory runs through the team, they said it would be obvious to them and how to play cricket. Well, I am the witness I have not seen. I come from this tragedy, but also really good, players are not better behavior, and I think that really disappointed hope. ”
In his opinion, was back on the air after some understandable hostile reaction in Australia. “The pick-up and gave an interview was published in the context of the ‘non-sports magazines,” he said. For context, we Hughes funeral in Macksville, you can go to their website immediately after Agnew he wrote:
“It just does not seem likely to play cricket in the same way again. Youth posture, has been devastated by abuse and attempted giyeomneun fast bowlers show the man. We just take a look to make what has been a long, hard cricket teammates hitting a shiny and attractive as their hopes, Phillip Hughes will never forget – do not like what they are looking at all. ”
The problem with this view is missing the point. Hughes tragedy precisely because of cricket, and should not be changed. In other words, people have to cope with grief are as follows: After mourning their loss, they seek refuge from everyday life and be satisfied that a few did. Hughes, certainly do not want to change the way you approach the game of his teammates, was still here.
You too are more appropriate time for all this. Match-fixing as well as the name of only 2 in Australia, India, United Kingdom blatant power grab at the top of the International Cricket Council by-cricket is much bigger players have a field operation than it is now.
Agnew, crow, and the rest will be provided directing their anger towards a better moral problem. Players – However, rather than take a serious problem, they choose the easy pot shots at the target.
“Managers and media in the field of aggression and have a two-sided relationship: When he said Gideon Haigh, a prominent Australian cricket writer, arrived at the truth of the matter is, they affect deplore it, but the fact that they know they can sell,” and it’s fun The reason is because they are selling. It recognizes, however, is prohibited.
As for the behavior of the field in the, you can do more than look at the sport of cricket and more. Even arguing – in spite of competition between players in the football fans among boxing while woven into the fabric of unsightly pre-fight trash talk sports abuse is endemic. It is time to start to solve Cricket much more important to count the blessings. Only then will we truly will be the guardian of the spirit of the game.
