Jonathan Agnew no doubt knows his non sequiturs from his solecisms and his sophisms so he is clearly just taking a cheap shot. It is one hell of a leap of logic to conclude that Michael Clarke saying Phil Hughes' spirit will live on in Australian cricket, means Michael Clarke has promised to give up sledging:
Respected BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew says the Australian cricket team have failed to live up to their intentions to pay tribute to Phillip Hughes by continuing their aggressive sledging on the field against India.
The ex-English bowler said Australia owes it to Hughes, who died after being struck by a bouncer during a Sheffield Shield match in November, to clean-up their on field behaviour.
"Michael Clarke said very clearly that Hughes' memory would run through the team, and would be in the way they would play their cricket. But the players haven't behaved any better, and I think that's a real disappointment."
The AGB looks forward to Aggers' "I was mistaken out of context and I undeservedly apologise... sorry, I'll read that again... unREservedly apologise."
