"Behaving like small children"

After having a go at Graeme Smith last week, Bobby Simpson now turns his attention to the Aussies and their behavior.

"While present-day cricketers promote the need for the spirit of cricket to be adhered to, many of them do not propose to follow in action this norm, which they publicly endorse in words," Simpson said.

"This, of course, includes not only sledging but excessive appealing, disrespecting the umpiring decisions and using their well-paid, generally ghost-written columns to bait opposition teams and players.

"I find all of this rather distasteful and not in the better interests of the game.

"In fact, public criticism of the opposition now seems to be part of the team tactics.

"All this reminds me of the behaviour of small children and the bravado they use to disguise their own fallibilities."


I can't agree more. More of this and the small children will take offense at the comparison.
