Australia PM calls for end to cricket sledging

Turnbull added that authorities needed to crack down on sledging — verbal abuse involving players on both sides — if it wanted cricket to be 'once again held up as a role model'

Sydney: Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has appealed an end to sledging in cricket, saying it was “ out of control” as he urged the sport to up its image amid a ball-tampering scandal. He said such incidents undermined a that had been “synonymous with fairplay”.

The premier described the cheating crisis in which captain Steve Smith admitted to masterminding a plot to change the ball’s condition during the third Test against South Africa on Saturday as a “shocking affront to Australia”.

He demanded that Cricket act decisively in investigating the incident. The governing body is expected to provide an update on 28 March.

Turnbull added that authorities needed to crack down on sledging — verbal abuse involving players on both sides — if it wanted cricket to “once again (be) held up as a role model”.

“I think there has to be the strongest action taken against this practice of sledging,” he told reporters in Canberra. “It has got out of control… it should have no place (in cricket).

“The of cricket… should be one that once again is held up as a role model.”

The Test series between South Africa and was ill-tempered even before Saturday’s explosive admissions.

The first Test in Durban earlier this month was plagued by an ugly row between vice-captain and South Africa’s Quinton de Kock.

CCTV footage showed Warner being restrained by team-mates as he appeared to lose his temper during a confrontation on a staircase as the players walked to their dressing rooms.

The incident was reportedly over a jibe about Warner’s Candice, with the Australian describing the remark as “vile and disgusting”.

Both players were punished for the bust-up with Warner fined 75% of his match fee and De Kock 25%.

The recent Ashes series was likewise marred by tensions between Smith and England bowler James Anderson, with umpire Aleem Dar having to separate the pair when the Australian was batting.

Anderson described the Aussies as bullies who overstepped the line ahead of the Adelaide Test, with Smith retorting that the Englishman was one of the biggest sledgers in the game.

किसान आंदोलन खत्म हो गया। "हम जीत गए" की लाइन हर दूसरा आदमी बोलता सुनाई दे रहा है आंदोलन का। अब उम्मीद की जानी चाहिए कि इस जीत के बाद देश का गरीब किसान बमबम हो जाएगा, बड़े घरों में रहेगा, बच्चों को अंग्रेजी स्कूल में पढ़ाएगा और किसान की आत्महत्याएं अब हमेशा के लिए बंद हो जाएंगीं।
