The Players should be reminded that the game of cricket is a SPORT, - a gentleman's one at that - therfore has no place for Rowdy behavior by any player. It is about time the ICC and all National Cricket athorities take HEAVY disciplinary action on all types of intimidation (including sledging)on the field. The umpires should be empowered to Red Card players.Please help save this great game from Hooligan PLAYERS.

I see nothing wrong with that..even our boys wanted to be gentlemen in this game other teams won't, @ Don that's history, besides what's the deal if you get out the next ball when a bowler sledges you? (no offense to Dilshan here, I'm generalizing the nature) Aussies are so arrogant and I won't mind telling them where they belong like Arjuna did, I mean weren't Harbhajan, Sreesanth and Zaheer successful when they replied to ugly Aussies in their own language? That's when their performance peaked and in fact, Aussies had to stop targeting them. So I believe it is time our boys took them on. I love to see aussies lose it like pussies !!!

I am no fan of the Sri Lankan Cricket team, neither am I a fan of Dilshan, but it was Tait and the arrogant aussies who started it. They were successful with their boorish behaviour as Dilshan lost his cool and eventually threw his wicket in a fit of rage.The ICC turns a blind eye every time an Aussie is found guilty of mis behaviour, at the same time an Indian is severely reprimanded for the smallest of causes. Remember Monkeygate? The whole world knows that Symonds is the most notorious cricketeer

Dilshan was an idiot. Just shut up, play and let your bat talk.

The Aussies always try to get the psychological edge, and Dilshan clearly fell to that trap.
