Perhaps Pakistan legspinner Danish Kaneria who has been found guilty of breaching the ICC Code of Conduct on day two of the ongoing Test at the SSC Stadium in Colombo needs to be taught a thing or two about personal conduct while playing the Gentlemen’s Game so as not to behave like a slumdog who has taken to the game for the first time and appears to be exactly what the title emphasizes barking around in limbo and seems to have missed his cue in trying to deal with his incapacity to be amongst gentleman for whatever reason!This after a long pre-emption by Pakistan towards selecting him in the recent past where he seeems to have let his entire side down!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ There seems to have been no provocation on the part of one of the most gentlemanly young players in Sri Lankan Cricket, Angelo Matthews whom the often inanely grinning Kaneria has abused after he was dismissed by him and perhaps the fines and reprimands imposed on Kaneria is insufficient towards his unwelcome and contentious behaviour which could be interpreted as the Pakistanis being poor losers if Kaneria’s foul language is to be construed as such! After all, Sri Lanka has resoundingly thrashed Pakistan in the two previous test have they not? Had this occurred in some Mid Eastern Enclave perhaps Kaneria may have had to face a few proverbial lashes in public even figuratively!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ In Sri Lanka contrary to what some may think, the game is played to its fullest expectations by its nomenclature alone and the Lankans have a reputation of being gentlemanly players whose charisma and charm have worldwide repute while also being a fighting team competitive to the end with nary a disgruntlement as losers and there is no privy for any Pakistani or anyone for that matter to walk onto the playing fields in Sri Lanka and act as though they were a bunch of thugs from some suburban Pakistani back alley where a single act of insolence could be a reflection on the entire team.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Perhaps they also need to be reminded that it was in Pakistan that the Sri Lankan team came close to disaster and a near death experience for which the Pakistanis perhaps need atoning on behalf of their country which has now been severely ostracized from the cricketing world rather than have one of their loose tongued punies come onto the field and insult Sri Lankan players regardless of how he spins the ball~ take an object lesson from Muttiah Muralidaran my dear fellow and behave yourself in the future!!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ It is hoped for the sake of the many decent players in the Pakistani side that this type of puerile and boorish behaviour by a single brat of the nature of Kaneria will not be repeated as Sri Lankan crowds are intolerant of such types and the fact that he had brilliant bowling figures becomes tantamount to zilch if they were not obtained with gentlemanly fervour and nullifies Kanerias effort where his singlemost effort towards being abusive by far obliterates all else and stands out!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ In this respect it needs to be said out loud “Shame on you Kaneria!” alongside which calling for a public apology to the entire Sri Lankan team including Angelo Matthews might well be in order!
