Gavaskar rant on profanity: Johnson niggles Laxman (Delhi)

After getting smacked for a four Mitchell Johnson has words with VVS Laxman in a bid to put him off his game.

Sunny gets stuck into the Aussies and makes a strong case for taking a hardline stance on profanities on the field from bowlers. Mark Waugh says that Sunil Gavaskar is last person to comment on onfield behaviour after his well publicised near walkoff in Melbourne 1981.

Action from Day 5 3rd Test Delhi Nov 2008.

For anyone who wants to actually pay attention...Gavaskar has clarified 100s of times that it was not the sledging that pushed him over the edge on that day, it was some nasty comment that came from an Austalian fielder while he was going back..please watch the video, you will see Sunny upset, but still walking back. Then he stops and goes back to Chauhan...
Why do we even care about guys like Mark Waugh? Obviously he is not civilied like Gavaskar to understand that foul language is just not acceptable anywhere...period. Shame on WAUGH..hope the Aussie youngsters find a better role model.

vivek, unfortunately, this is the sort of trash that the aussie public gets fed...mark waugh does not reveal/nor cares to reveal the intense provacation that Sunny was put under...I think that he and chauhan had put on a big stand to thwart the Aussies in this test....that India eventually won in 1981

typical aussie ignorace and arrogance...busing a fellow player is the way to pump up onself, is it???.....and the walking off incident further gives weight gavaskar's statements..it was only after intense and higly abusive behavaiour of denis lilly that gavasker decided to walk off....and then mark waugh sitting thousands of miles from india..accuses gambhir of starting the niggle....ignorant prick

Loved the clip in "related videos" that highlights Sunil gavaskar stalking off in '81. Brings to life what Waugh was saying.

Whoa, Mark Waugh - steady on. What Gavaskar makes sense. The rest of the cricketing world do not think like the Aussies. They prefer the game played without the four letter words flying around.

Good on Sunny to get stuck into the on-field behaviour issue.
