    Grin and bear it?

    It is totally bizarre and stinks of double-standards. Jason Gillespie's viewpoint is that the abuse that Andrew Symonds copped in India is "totally unacceptable" while he doesn't use the same words in the context of Murali being targetted by Australian spectators.

    Instead, he advises Murali to 'grin and bear it'. I am emphatically against the way the crowds targetted Andrew Symonds, but for a minute, I am tempted to ask Symonds to 'grin and bear it' as well. Then again, maybe Gillespie is saying this because he's perhaps not going to return to the international side again, having been first dropped in the post-2005 Ashes cleanup and then not having been picked since April 2006 after scoring a double-century.

    In fact, right now, he has the 5th highest final test innings score, behind Sandham, Ponsford, Nurse and Aravinda de Silva. Sangakkara's last test innings was 222, but he's definitely going to play another test. Gillespie? Umm, I think not!

    i would have to agree - the rather hypocritical comments about the so-called Symonds verbal abuse, is just setting the ground and egging the Australian cricket public to abuse and pressurize the Indian cricket team on the Australian cricket tour in the next couple of months.
