The Pawar--Ponting Controversy

If discussions in Mumbai's local trains are a barometer of what's recently in the public mindspace, the behavior of the Australian Cricket team at the end of the presentation ceremony for the Champions Trophy is what's foremost in the minds of these commuters at the moment.

Overheard from one such discussion yesterday night:
"Ponting and the others should thank their stars that it was Pawar and not Thackeray."
And today morning, a snide comment, on Tendulkar's reaction to the incident:
"Sachin has at least ensured he won't get dropped from the team till Pawar is around."

The Australians are going to pay for that misbehaviour, since Pawar is a silent killer.
