Haydos High on Weed
BBC reports: Matthew Hayden has been charged with a breach of Cricket Australia’s code of conduct after describing Harbhajan Singh as an “obnoxious little weed”.
This was expected. CA has already drawn a lot of flack for the way this tour has shaped up. I wonder what punishment would be in store. IMO though, Haydos needs to be sent a rehabilitation centre to help him get rid of his liking for weed. Really, how ridiculous could one get with commenting about the opposition players? Calling Harbhajan an obnoxious little weed could be ignored. But the following statement about Harbhajan proves that Haydos must have himself been high on weed when he gave the interview to a Brisbane Radio station:
“His record speaks for itself in cricket. There is a certain line that you can kind of go to and then you know where you push it and he just pushes it all the time.”
This about a bowler whose maximum wickets (64/256) have come against the Australians. How dumb can you get? Effect of weed I guess.
As if this wasn’t enough, he goes on to give further proof. This time talking about Ishant Sharma, who, again, just by chance, happens to be the best bowler against the Aussies in this series.
“He is just young. I have said to him many times, ‘You are 19, take it easy’,” added Hayden. “He is 19, why doesn’t he just worry about his bowling for a while? I like the idea of actually getting into the ring (with him). I like that, bring it on.”
Not to mention that this comes from a player who is (read was) one of the most respected Australian cricketers in India. We make fun of Sreesanth’s antics, but this one’s at a different level all together. Unprovoked and downright stupid. Get a life, old man.
