Lots of bonhomie and 'nice talk' about respecting VK, and claiming that sledging will backfire from the Australian camp - players, coaches, retired folks alike. I'm not buying it at all. For one thing, VK is susceptible to sledging, if the intent is to get him to change his approach and disrupt his focus. Time and again he has demonstrated that. And in the celebrated innings against Johnson, few recall or pay heed to the fact that VK got completely carried away and almost got himself out twice in 10 balls. Luck was with him that day, and he went on to hit a few more good looking boundaries which pad the highlights. So even though the outcome was not completely in favor of the Aussies, the sledging worked. I expect them to be right up in VK's face this series. Especially if they get to put up a score and a wicket or so falls. Like a pack of hyenas, are these Aussies. They will not let any opportunity to bark, slide. Nothing wrong with it. But just goes to show you how much fluff and utter nonsense fills out the media "coverage" of cricket.
