Asked what he thought of Watson's histrionics when he bounded up and down and yelled in the personal space of Gayle after taking his wicket for 21 during the second innings yesterday, West Indies team manager Joel Garner said: ''I am not even going to entertain the thought. The match referee is the man in charge and he will do whatever he feels is best. I go back to Animal Farm days, George Orwell, they say all animals are equal and later on in the same book they say some animals are more equal than others. Maybe that applies in some cases.''

Garner, still seething about inconsistencies in the punishments handed to Benn, Haddin and Johnson after the mid-pitch blow-up on the second day of the Test, said yesterday the provocation of Benn started long before the third Test. Benn was found guilty of a level-two offence and suspended for two one-day internationals while the two Australians received fines for less serious level-one offences.

''They slapped two fellas on the wrist and they killed the other fella,'' the fast-bowling legend told the Herald. ''There are inconsistencies in the entire process and how the charges were laid. If there are three people involved in the same thing they should be all given the same level of charges and that is why I think it is a bit unreasonable. The other thing I would say is you had an incident where [Ricky] Ponting had an altercation with [Dwayne] Bravo and nothing was done during the same game and I have a problem with the way that justice is being administered.''

good analogy

The Senior umpire was happy to ignore the Watson incident.

Gould had to have a word.
