"Ben Stokes: unacceptable to his sponsor, unacceptable to Australian standards, but still good enough for England!"

"David Warner: unacceptable to his sponsor, unacceptable to proper punching standards, but still good enough for Australia!"

"Ricky Ponting: unacceptable to his sponsor, unacceptable to hairline standards, but still good enough for Australia!"

hope he recognises the irony of his own piece seeing how both those players involved in similar incidents managed to have more than successful careers with Australia.

Thanks. Good article. The gin swillers. Running Pomgolian cricket have achieved the impossible - surpassing the craven behaviour of CA.

Got to be the best line in the piece

The ensuing paragraph is a sea of shit.

Malcolm Knox has his say on Stokes.  

Knox sounds like a tosser.

unacceptable to Australian standards,

And when Warner caused shit on the last Aussie Ashes tour?

England's best player?

Do Cook, Root and Anderson know this?

Stokes is by far the best player for Oz conditions. Chef struggled here on their last tour, while Jandy gave up. Root and Stokes both did well here..

Yes the gcspoc thumped Root, but this was nothing compared to the systematic beating the Pig gave those two blokes.

The gcspoc was suspended. In my view he should have been sent home. He would have been had he not come from NSW.

Irrespective of the judicial process, he should receive a two year suspension from all forms of cricket inc IPL. The Pig has a lot to work on if he is to become a half decent person let alone worthy of ever playing cricket again.

Taipan of course reaches into his favourite bag of moral equivalence. For Taipan gcspoc = The Pig, just like current Saffie selection policy = Apartheid.

Was it Knox or Coward who threw away what credibility they had to work for CA? Mind you Waugh taking the moral high ground is breathtaking in it's audacity.

Witnesses are all gay (the blokes Stokes was defending valiantly and sexual-preference- appropriately), cowering in their pink tutus and busy scarfing their hard won oranges and bananas.

Fairy nuff S. The expectation bar for the Poms has never been high.

Lovely piece by Haigh in today's Australian.... Inc some good lines about the uber Tories who once ran the MCC.

Stokes will not play before this matter is resolved - that could be months . I dont think he has the remotest chance of playing this winter. If he is found guilty, a custodial sentence is quite possible,in which case I think it's game over as far as his England career is concerned.

Whether he initiated the physical contact as some kind of 'defence' against a new friend being subjected to homophobic abuse or not, I honestly can't see him escaping sanction for chasing retreating blokes across a road and going the full Clockwork Orange ultraviolent thug on them.
