Having previously described the Australian cricket team as a pack of wild dogs, Fairfax moral muppet Peter Roebuck is now livid over Matthew Hayden’s description of Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh (“a guest in this country”) as an obnoxious weed. Memo to Hayden: next time, call him a dog.
Not that Roebuck spares Indian players of criticism; oh, not at all. But look at whom he blames:
Urged on by television networks eager to cast them as heroes, Harbhajan and Ishant have turned into hotheads …
Well, hang on a second. Here’s Roebuck’s January 8 column, massively circulated throughout Indian media:
Harbhajan Singh can be an irritating young man but he is head of a family and responsible for raising nine people … Australian fieldsmen fire insults from the corners of their mouths, an intemperate Sikh warrior overreacts …
Keep ducking and weaving, Peter.
