    And he doesn't scream right in thier face like a dick head. He's just to big for his boots, he is a extremely good bowler but not to the point of his behaviour

    Broad would have to be leading the bowling attack and Sharma would be right next to him

    He hasn't been around long enough to earn the right to sledge the way he does.

    Plenty of people say it’s just good hard cricket.

    They do it too. Is another favourite.

    Australians are very good at only being offended by others.

    I think the way Rabada and **** head have carried on has been way more offensive than the way Warner and Lyon have acted
    M Marsh just said what everyone was thinking

    Rabada is good enough to sledge, the guy is the best young quick going around by a country mile.

    I'm just hoping for a bouncy wicket for the third test

    How would you know just because it's not visible doesn't mean nothing is happening? I know the Australians were terrible to AB the other night while he batted.

    We don't even know what Q said so how can you judge it?

    Warner had to be held back from hitting Q and Lyon threw the ball at an opponent. How are they not as offensive as yelling or touching someone?

    Newlands is a beautiful ground. Philander got 6/42 there in the India series. Highest score was 93 and six ducks.

    Warner did well not to crack de **** after he spoke about his missus. Warner's reaction was due to the scum bag talking about her

    Lyon didn't throw a ball at anyone, let's not get carried away here, he dropped the ball next to him.

    Rabada screamed in Smith's face before shouldering him. He's been doing it for the last couple of years now

    What dose the bowler usually get out of the wicket? Spin, bounce ect

    After Warner had a chop at his sister let's not leave that out.

    The brush was the equal of the ball. Let's be fair. If one is a oops drop then the shoulder can be a oops sorry.

    See what I mean when I say Australians are bad for we can do whatever we want and it's just hard cricket. You've just proven my point.

    I haven't heard anything about Warner bring talking about de **** sister?
    Its a two way street I guess. None of the incidents were that over the top to be fair. The Warner and de **** one looked ugly, I do agree with that.

    The Lyon one shouldn't even be a thing in my opinion. I'd rather Rabada do that rather then scream in people's faces
     
  15. Somehow they have overturned Rabada's 2 test ban and he'll be clear to play the last 2 games of the series.

    As if he won’t do something to get suspended for the last game.

    Good. What he did is no worse than Warner. You want the best against the best and he is among the very best. Australia need to learn how to play him, preferably with aggression.

    All good to have the best of the best but if they refuse to suspend someone over deliberate physical contact then don't expect the behavior to improve.
    Also letting them get away with that ridiculous defence that Smith partly caused it is just rubbish. They may as well have made a public announcement that anything goes and if you get cited just get the lawyers in to make some stuff up.
    Cricket is now a contact sport.

    Just another example of a body without the balls to back up what they say.

    I agree with your point BUT if Warner carrying on like a git goes unpunished, why should Rabada be rubbed out? If Warner is rubbed out, Rabada should be as well. You can't have one being punished and the other not. I think they both should be sat out personally because cricket is a gentleman's sport but if one is ok, they both should be ok.

    The drop in standards as a result of this is another discussion but I blame it a lot on Kohli and Indian antics to be honest. Definitely lowered standards these days.
     
    They both received 3 demerit points. Rabada just had more to start with.
