Monkey Business - The Irony

Andrew Symonds was the target of racist abuse during the fifth ODI against India in Vadodara on Thursday after being subjected to monkey chants while fielding on the boundary. According to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald, the incident occurred during the second half of India's innings at the IPCL Sports Complex.

Sources within the Australian squad confirmed to the paper the abuse took place, but have referred the matter to the local authorities, who may face an inquest from the International Cricket Council. "Like any cricketing centre in India, we would never tolerate this kind of behaviour," Makarand Waingankar, the chief executive of the local Baroda Cricket Association," said. "Racism should not exist in India at all.

"We are a cosmopolitan country, with many religions and dialects living peacefully together. This is the cultural city of Gujarat, and it would be a shame if that was to be spoilt by a few people." The fifth ODI was also marred during Australia's surge to victory when a section of the crowd pelted the playing area with bottles.

The ICC took measures to stamp out racism last year after the South Africa team complained of crowd abuse during their tour of Australia. Under the new code, spectators who are found guilty of racial abuse could face life bans and the venues are subject to fines and the loss of international status.

I have always felt we are as racist as the whites (more racist perhaps?) we usually accuse of the same crime. On a slightly less "important" note, the BCCI continues to favor crapping grounds with ignorant, ill-behaved audiences while either ignoring Chepauk or scheduling matches there at a time of the year when even a "mEgam kottattum Attam uNdu" cannot save the match. Bangalore - the most overrated venue on planet-earth (OK, after Mohali)- has usurped Mumbai's throne as the most favored Indian cricket venue. I would rather see Chepauk lose to Eden Gardens than these crap-filled spaces of nonsense.
