Phakathi ODI world cup sekube ingxoxo okuqhubekayo phakathi abasakazi mayelana ukusabela izixuku kuya 2 umkhonyovu Australian. Eoin Morgan akazange athathe uhlangothi futhi wathi wafikelwa kwakungeyona kuye ukutshela abalandeli yini okumelwe ziyenze noma ucabanga. Virat Kohli ebuzwa abasekeli hhayi Boo umbhangqwana endaweni isenzo esihle ukuthi mhlawumbe awufanelwe. England abadlali Owabe kuhlanganise uGraeme Swann bebelokhu esibi kakhulu mayelana booing, njengabaningi Australian ex-buhle. Ngakho-ke yini umphakathi ukubukela ukwenza?
We strongly disagree with those who have attacked supporters for booing. Smith and Warner were guilty of cheating, kodwa ngaphezu kwalokho, they behaved in a way that wouldn’t be acceptable in almost any other walk of life. The anger towards them was about more than a bit of sandpaper. It was about their utter disrespect for the spirit of cricket and the terrible example they were setting to future generations. Warner especially has a long track record including (but not limited to) punching Joe Root in a bar a few years ago, telling Rohit Sharma to “speak English”, squaring up to Rangana Herath, and the infamous abuse directed at Jonathan Trott. Uye waba amathuba okungaphezulu kakhulu kwalokho okungakulahlekela ufanelwe. I would prefer not to see him selected to play international cricket any more.
Noma kunjalo, one good point has been made about booing. It often fires players up and drives them to play at their best. Warner, Ngokwesibonelo, uye kukora amaningi lisebenza wendebe yomhlaba.
Ngakho, we have a proposal. Don’t boo regularly. Don’t do anything at all. Ngokwengxenye enkulu, maintain a dignified silence. Send a message that they aren’t welcome but also that they aren’t worth the effort. If every boundary is greeted with deathly silence that sends a much more potent message. Save the boos for a major landmark. Ignore the performance until a century is made and then boo loud and clear.
Got abanye imicabango eyakho? Yenza lokho ezikuthandayo ngokwakho ngezansi ngokukhuluma! Uma ungathanda ukuba ubhalise sicela usebenzise ubhalisele isixhumanisi on the imenyu at ilungelo phezulu. Ungase futhi wabelane le nabangani bakho ngokusebenzisa links social ngezansi. cheers.
