Does he thinks he is Mr. Courageous! Why he didn't comment about "over reaction" of Cricket Australia and Australian media when they reacted to the death of Phi Hughes by bouncer in a cricket match? Mathews may be taking advantage of the situation to take some publicity for him as he might have been sidelined or forgotten by Cricket fans in that Country.

Exactly. I too feel the same abt over publicity of Phil's death. I must repeat his own words - "It’s tough cricket out there, you want people getting on with it." why so much about an ordinary cricketer's death. He was even a stalwart. Just an ordinary player. So why so much hype about his death.

Very Un-Aussie

The 'concern' displayed by Johnson was very un- Aussie like. To his credit, Kohli was unfazed and dismissed all the fuss. If Johnson was so 'concerned', he would not have sent another bouncer to Pujara in the same over!
It seems more 'tactical' than anything else!

Why should we worry about Johnson's bowling when our batsmen did not show any fear against him. Even an Australian would not have hit a century if he had received a blow on helmet from the very first ball he faced in Test that too as Captaining the side for the first time!!

Technique and protective gear
by Mike Teflon on Dec 11, 2014 10:54 PM

You only get a split second to decide on whether you duck, pull or sway away. Even the best batsman could get hit..

Agreed, many criticized Philo for the lack of technique, which of course isn't without truth, but a comprehensive security gear could have saved his life..

I want the bouncer and want the excitement, but I also want complete protection of batsmen as well..

Greg Matthews is another arrogant idiot. He will not play the same game if India had included Umesh Yadav instead of Mohammad Shami. AT over 144-145 Kilometers per hour pace, anybody can bowl a bouncer and frighten the Australian batsmen.

Aussies are afraid?
by Joy Augustine on Dec 11, 2014 10:07 PM

After seeing the highlights it is great if Kohli did it on purpose . Mitchel was not at fault. But I doubt that Kohli did it on purpose. I think Kohli just ducked . he was afraid. Mathews is right. Aussies show was an over reaction

Instead of Hughes to pass on to the other world. At least the idiotic hype by Indians over Kohli would be over.

What are you smoking??? Do u even know what are you talking?

He has done so much for India and this is how you show your gratitude.

regardless, this is sports, no one deserves what happened to Hughes. It was accident, it is unfortunate. Time to move on.
