Effigies of Handled the Baller writers burnt on the street

Indian Cricket fans have reacted angrily at comments about the BCCI and Harbhjan on the popular cricket blog Handled the Ball by burning effigies of the writers on the streets.

As the photos below graphically show, an effigy of Scott in an Australian playing guernsey was prepared to be burnt in front of school children, whilst West and Steve Bucknor (who came under enormous flack after the Sydney test) were portrayed as donkeys with misspelt names.

HTB writers have remained silent on the issue, however Greg Chappell and Sourav Ganguly - who have both been burnt many times - stated that such a burning was actually a sign of affection.

Thanks to The Corridor (A Cricket Blog) for the pics
