Did anyone spot the (British) idiot at the Dhaka test who jumped over the fence during the tea interval to play with Ian Bell's cricket bat?

This kind of thing not only upsets the hosts, but could ensure security is a permanent headache for us all - especially when the likes of the President of the ICC are present at the match.

The latest issue of "The Corridor Of Uncertainty" touched on the issue of football type support creeping into the overseas tours.

I'm not for a minute suggesting England fans all sit in stripey blazers remarking "well played old chap" while sipping their G & T's - but idiots we can all do without.

I suspect very few did, including myself. What was the outcome ? I presume it was someone from the VIP area,which makes it even more surprising, especially as he would have to pay 20p to get back in if ejected.

Ah indeed idiots at cricket, even racists.....
Now I know few on here take issue with some of my comments sometims, and it does appar that I am the backpacker type who liks to rough it a bit, and I guess I do get on my soap box sometimes and suggest that more should be like me....and for this maybe I am out of order......
But I will say what i want about the idiots at overseas cricket matches......god damn wasters

Exampl one.....As many will know, the local kids revelled in a bunch of white people coming to their country......something that touched me.....and some of these kids wanted the white people to sign pieces of paper so they could show off to school friends no doubt......and after posing for 100's photos and signing 100's pieces of paper, I was somewhat tired, but on signing one piece I was horrified to see that one person had signed "U R A TOSSER".....well out of order....but I was even more horrified to see, signed underneath this "P*k* C**t", a simply horrible thing to write.....and I crossed this out, something which shoul have been done before
Now this person is clearly a waster, who I have no idea why they were in the country if this is how they feel, and I will put my neck on the line and say that this person no doubt frequented the crown prince and got pissed every night, in true football fan style....
Example two....when the england players threw their clothing into the vip stands, I was pleased to see a young bangladeshie manage to catch an england shirt, only to have some obese english man physically drag it from him, and walk off with a look of achievement on his face....again bang out of order, this child was given something he could only dream of ever having for some jumped up slob to wrestle it from him.....

Now these two examples only go to back up what is said above, the barmy army have helped to create elements of this by marketing themselves in the way that they have.....pure genuine cricket fans, pd long, clarky, fish, big harvey, etc visit these countries out of love for the sub continent and cricket, and behave accordingly.....however there seems to be a growing number of people hell bent on "getting the t shirt" with limited interest in the cricket and the country they visit and respecting the customs of said country, and just wanting everything to be like england, with fans who dont bother them and where beer is in great supply. After all, because of where we were born we are afforded jobs that pay us enough money to make these trips and yet it seems that the local people with nothing behave in a far more respectful manner......and I am not tarring everyone with the same brush, but unless these wasters are rooted out, we are in danger of being tarred with the same brush as these idiots.

sorry if u upset you Gaz when i did that, everyone else seemed to take it as it was meant....a bit of harmless fun.....it seems to have upset you more than it upset the security people (despite the president being there)......so maybe you should get over this terrible deed that i committed & perhaps lighten up a bit.

I spotted the idiot in facts its KEV off here

Get yer fuckin facts right GAZ he had permission to take a few photoes

We were on 1st name terms with all the board of the Banglades Cricket Club at both Test matches
He had been given permission by a guy called KOKON who was the Curator at Dhaka

An over zealous security guard was made to look a twat

and gettin back to the president Mr Morgan, myself and Charlie Mellor had lunch with him...NICE

You are correct it would appear that some take issue to your comments, however, I would like to add to example two,

After sitting in the VIP stand for 5 days with many locals, I to witnessed the actions of certain England fans that had migrated from other areas of the ground at the close of play on day 5. I would like to think this was to show appreciation to the lads. However, I was amazed to witness a tug of war between a local and an England fan (ironically with a Scottish accent with a very familiar face) for an England shirt, shouting "England No" !

Great stuff, I would have liked a shirt myself but would not have stooped to such levels. This behaviour can not be blamed on football type support alone, as a familiar face to the Barmy Army is "Guilty".

I too witnessed the afore mentioned event. However, I would like to think that the distribution of several items of the England cricket team's kit to the waiting fans was indeed meant for the ENGLAND fans. Possibly the players way of showing their appreciation for our attendance :idea:

Furthermore, if I were an England player, I would want my shirt/cap/training top etc etc to find it's way into the hands of a deserving ENGLAND cricket fan. I do not recollect a swarm of England fans around the Bangladesh changing room asking for keep sakes and/or photographs from their players so why the locals around our dressing room???

Yes, not some bloody (self moderated).

Only jocking of course. I am sure there is a perfectly good explanation forthcoming?
