Saint Sangakarra was the one who asked his bowler to do it

It's always the case isn't it? The ones that make the most noise about playing the game "the right way" and give lectures on the spirit of cricket are often the ones who do that kind of thing.

On the other hand, the Russell and Mitch Johnson clips are just funny to me.

Odds on a 2 point deduction?
Oh I hope so!

What a terrible ruling. So they retain the title and will handing out a load of dickings next year in the league below.

Fully agree crap call by the league as gives them an easy ride

Take title off and dock 100 points or so then they can't win it next year either.

Caught between a rock...

While nothing a respectable person would do, they didn't break the rules that the league had set. They can't undo that.

They've done enough to put other people off I would of thought.

So if they haven't broken then how can you relegate them, if you can do that you can revoke a title.

As I said, the only people this is really punishing are the team's that they'll give two kickings to all next season.

I think similar to this - no point in dropping them down a league as they are obviously a strong team.
They broke no rules either. They simply need to ensure there is are rules in place to ensure no team can do this again!
But also start them on -30 points next season for unsportsmanlike conduct or similar!

surely every league has rules about bringing the game into disrepute?

No match rules broken but surely dragging the game through the mud is breaking some rule?

I think made to play in this kit next season would do.

Surely a suitable punishment on here would be to make us all use the same kit for the next 3 seasons!!!!!!
