And season's greetings? (-worma)

From Andre Nel...that embodiment of everything gentlemanly about cricket..who declares that "if you can't beat them, join them" is the way to go for SAfricans. So they would look to join the lung-fest at Sydney.

And just to flog the dead horse one final time (hopefully?) here's what Dileep Premchandran has to say about this issue in his year-end article
Shane Warne's appeals at the MCG made a mockery of the ICC's much-waved-about Code of Conduct. A more experienced umpire than Asad Rauf, who did a commendable job under the circumstances, might just have taken Warne to one side and asked him to shut his cakehole. As it was, astonishingly, Chris Broad, the match referee, let him off without so much as a fine. Having watched Lakshmipathy Balaji and Inzamam get stitched up for far less in the last India-Pakistan series, you just wonder what parameters the ICC use to define misconduct. Or does having taken 650 wickets allow you to behave like a prat?
Read on...there's much more in the article than just plain 'Aussie sniping' (as my fan-club accuses me ;-)
