    It just struck me that Mike Procter's decision not to take any action on any of the cricketers involved in the sledging-fighting at Antigua was totally inconsistent with what transpired in November 2001 when India toured South Africa. Sourav Ganguly was handed a suspended one match ban. This was Mike Denness' statement:

    Sourav Ganguly:

    For alleged breach of ICC Players and Team Officials Code No.1 & 2. Spirit of the Game, including Conduct of on-field players and bringing the game into disprepute.

    Match Referee Decision:
    Mr Ganguly so long as he remains Captain of India a one-Test Match and two-ODI Matches ban have been imposed. The ban will be suspended until the last day of January 2002.

    Players and Team Officials Code No 1:
    "The captains are responsible at all times for ensuring that play is conducted within the spirit of the game as well as within the Laws of Cricket."

    Pardon me for asking, but what on earth was Steve Waugh doing? Was he controlling McGrath? Was he controlling Hayden or Lehmann when they had their "Hello mate!" sessions with Lara earlier in the game? What about his own sledging match with Lara while standing at short cover?

    Maybe there's a rule in the ICC book which says 'The captains (as long as they are not Australian) are responsible for ...'.
