Re: Australian Prime Minister,s Comments.
In cricket, your balls can go awry even if only lightly abraded, to the detriment of the batsman. The difficulty is keeping them concealed whilst in the act. Smith was guilty only in his failure to pull a fast one in full view on the open field. It serves him right if he is subsequently 'rubbed up' by the spectators.
The practice is hardly necessary if you can place a ball so as to remove the batsman's head (as in recent game) but this prevents him from 'walking' even if he wanted to. Either way, it smacks of 'scraping' the bottom of the barrel and just not cricket.
The act of 'sledging' is beyond me and all I would ask is 'Who wants to play cricket in the snow'?
