The reason for tampering with a ball is to vary the ball’s flight upredictably in order to confuse the batsmen. So why then is polishing one side of the ball acceptable and roughing up the other side not acceptable?
Why then is using unadulterated spit okay to enhance the shiny side but not the mint-flavoured spit South Africa's du Plessis was found guilty of.
Fast bowlers tampering with the pitch to form footmarks for spinners to use is also okay, so I’m getting utterly tired of watching Test cricket, let alone that Big Bash bullshit.
The rules surrounding tampering of any sporting equipment should at least be made consistent! In the meantime, I’m far happier and better-entertained watching AFL.
Token Muslim player, Usman Khawaja, couldn’t hit the water if he fell out of a boat and couldn’t catch a cold in Greenland without lying about it, yet he complains about wearing the team's VB beer logo but is happy to promote Australia’s homosexual airline, QUAINTARSE and the crooked, non-Shariah usurer, the CBA bank.
I'm over it… Australia now looks certain to lose this Test series to the Yarpies and really….who bloody cares?
