Is he insane?

in the wake of the ongoing row in the 'Aussie ki taisi' series, Peter Roebuck has made a name for himself indeed. 'Mr.Roebuck, ARE YOU AN IDIOT?'

post Sydney, the man wrote an article in the Sydney Morning Herald shredding Ponting into bits. In this article, he writes..

"If Cricket Australia cares a fig for the tattered reputation of our national team in our national sport, it will not for a moment longer tolerate the sort of arrogant and abrasive conduct seen from the captain and his senior players over the past few days. Beyond comparison it was the ugliest performance put up by an Australian side for 20 years."

Fine. And then this..
"The only surprising part of it is that the Indians have not packed their bags and gone home. There is no justice for them in this country, nor any manners"

...which seems alright. But then, two days ago, after the ban on Harbhajan was lifted by the tribunal who supposedly caved into the BCCI's threats of abandoning the tour if justice wasn't done, he writes another gem of a column, only this time switching sides to peel the Indians open.

He says,
"If this is the way the Indian board intends to conduct its affairs hereafter, then God help cricket,"

Then senor dishes out a delicious contradiction...
"Brinkmanship or not, threatening to take their bat and ball home in the event of a resented verdict being allowed to stand was an abomination. It sets a dreadful precedent. What price justice now?"

ha ha ha ha ha... lesser said, the better!
