Lessons Australians must learn

As the Australian media cries hoarse about ICC turning toothless in the face of the financial might of BCCI, they conveniently forget two realities that must come to terms with.

One, when you dish it out, you must be ready to take it when its dished back. After all, what goes around comes around. The Australians' take on why its different when it comes to what Harbhajan said, does not cut much ice as they do not understand the cultural context within which such terms are uttered.

Two, they better get used to accepting a 'reality' that is global. And that is, financial muscle is what runs ventures, whether in business, politics or in sports all around the world. The ones with the 'moolah' hold better positions when it comes to bargaining.

Now that's settled, lets get on with the game.
