Angry Cricket loss makes Oz athletes take it out on washing machin

NEW DELHI: At the top of the medal tally and the undisputed champions of the Commonwealth Games, the Australian team, sadly didn't show any sporting spirit when their cricket team lost the Test series to India on Wednesday.

Enraged by the humiliating loss, some athletes, according to highly-placed sources in Delhi Police, went berserk, destroying electrical fittings and furniture in their tower in the Games Village on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Not just that, policemen posted there say they also shouted slogans against batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar, who played a pivotal role in ensuring India's victory in the Bangalore match, and flung a washing machine down from the eighth floor of their tower.

Their hooliganism started on Tuesday when Sachin scored a double century. "The house-keeping staff tried to stop them but to no avail," said a senior police officer handling security inside the Village. Stunned by the little master's stellar performance, they first damaged electrical fittings and fixtures in their block.

On Wednesday, when India brownwashed Australian 2-0 to keep the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, the Australian athletes reportedly threw a washing machine down from the eighth floor, said a senior officer. Mercifully, no one was injured.

Delhi Police, which received a complaint about this vandalism, tried to downplay the incidents to prevent them from snowballing into a diplomatic embarrassment for Australia.

On reports that some Australian athletes went berserk inside the Games Village after their cricket team lost the Test series to India, a senior officer posted there said that they have not received any complaints from Organising Committee (OC) which owns the property inside the Games Village. "Therefore, we have not registered any case," said a senior police officer.

Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said: "No complaint has been received. We have found a broken washing machine from the block where the athletes were staying. We are trying to establish as to how the machine reached there."

OC officials didn't pursue the matter. "We have not given any complaint and the matter has been sorted out after discussion with the Australian chef-de-mission," said an official. When asked whether the Australian athletes have tendered any apology, he declined any comment.

CWG: Australian team asked to pay for damages

New Delhi: The Australians have been asked to pay for damages after a washing machine fell from a balcony in the Australian area in the Commonwealth Games Village, an Indian official said Friday.

Lalit Bhanot, Secretary General of the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee (OC), however dismissed reports of vandalism blamed on the Australian contingent.

"There has been no vandalism. The players were just celebrating. The broken washing machine was an accident," Bhanot said.

"We have asked the Australians to pay for the damage and they agreed . No complaint has been registered against anyone," he said.

Bhanot gave no further details. But a senior Australian official said a washing machine was indeed dropped from the balcony allotted to the Australian contingent.

No one was injured in the incident, chief executive of the Australian Commonwealth Games Association Perry Crosswhite said in remarks published Friday.

The Sydney Morning Herald quoted him as saying the incident took place after the Commonwealth Games ended Thursday.

"We don't know who did that," he said. "Delhi Police came around and they have done an investigation."

He also revealed that an Australian athlete was sent home a few days ago for bad behaviour but did not reveal the person's identity.
