    Dont know much about cricket, and dont know what this guy done that made it have a 'massive' impact on the game but it seems the fallout from it is massive, sponsors pulling out the lot.
    What I was thinking when I heard it was, is it any different to a footballer diving for a penalty? Yes they may get few match ban after the incident ,and a small fine, but its never as big a furore as this. Could you see a sponsor stop sponsoring Ronaldo if he was caught diving, which is in all intents and purposes, cheating.

    You're right! For serious followers of cricket, though, this is a bad show altogether.

    I've not taken much interest in the game since it came off the cooncil telly, but I seem to remember Mike Atherton doing something suspicious in his trouser pocket in a test. I think he got away with it without a furore like this.

    Donald Bradman must be birlin' in his grave - not just at the outright cheating but one of the Australians was actually crying on the television. Extraordinary way to carry on!

    Time for Cook to retire now I think. Out for 2, he was all over the place.

    Itís good to see a match played down under on a proper cricket ground with a proper wicket. These drop in wickets are something Iíve never taken to.
