Gah. Fecking disgraceful. That's one of the most embarrassing things of our modern era actually. Greg Chappell has always been quite sheepish about it but I bet not a week has gone by since then when he wasn't reminded about that outrageous decision. I bet he rues it every day of his life.

I guess it is one of those episodes that can be held up as a lesson (in many areas of life I guess) about sportsmanship, overkill and 'within the spirit of the rules'.

GC is our Hansie Kronje (sp?).

{and I'm feeling old now, thanks}

Fixed. Thanks.
I'm looking forward to watching Lou Vincent when he next faces Australia.
