Commentators

When cricket is played here in Australia they over do the unbiased angle to
the point of being pro visiting team, then we have to listen to the English
commentators crap on being very pro home team. I am sick of hearing oh
Hayden should shut up and get on with it, I am sure if it was Brett Lee
throwing a ball at any English batsmen it would be a very different story.

Which channel do you watch?

Would love to hear that sort of commentary on the box, but ABC doesn't
televise the cricket in Australia.

In my opinion, Haydos had every right to get angry at Jones for
throwing the ball at him.

Hayden wasn't advancing at all, and he threw the ball straight at him.
If anything, Jones should of just threaten to throw the ball instead.

Exactly, and to listen to the comms they just kept bringing it up that he
was carrying on, even when he went out they were still saying he was
whinging and should get on with it. When you are standing in your crease you
don't expect to have a cricket ball hurled at you at pace.
