Selective outrage

The Cup Match slip and slide was both an amusing diversion and ill-advised.

Marc Bean's comments in the Senate are rather narrowly targeted however.

If it's wrong to slide over a covered wicket after hours of delay and alcohol induced boredom, it's wrong for fans to run on the field and all over an uncovered wicket to mob the batter and celebrate a half century or century - not to mention the added impact of delaying the game.

He made no mention of that widely accepted behaviour.

Should those individuals receive lifetime bans as well?
