The Ashes 2010: Damien Martyn Voices Disapproval On Twitter

The Ashes 2010: Damien Martyn Voices Disapproval On Twitter

With so much hype over Cricket’s answer to the World Cup “The Ashes,” former Australian batsman Damien Martyn, has taken to networking site Twitter, to voice his disapproval of the selectors choice to introduce pace bowler Peter Siddle over Doug Bollinger.

The choice was made after Bollinger was topped by Siddle in the Australian XI as part of the Ashes opener last night. Although Ricky Ponting, Australian Captain gave confirmation of the line up, Martyn tweeted his thoughts. He was quoted on Twitter as saying, “Terrible decision bollinger had to play if fully fit I know who the poms would rather face!!! Top ten bowler in world left out we must be good.”

The Telegraph said that, Ponting justified his decisions by stating, “Doug Bollinger and Usman Khawaja are the two guys who won’t be playing. Michael Clarke has got through his work particularly well the last couple of days and had a solid session in the nets. He’s come through pretty well but Doug is the unlucky quick to miss out. A lack of bowling in the last few weeks has got as much to do with it as anything.”

Twitter, one of the largest social networking sites is becoming increasingly popular with the likes of sporting celebrities, enabling them to speak to the world. Only yesterday, we reported on Lewis Hamilton voicing his own opinions on there. While this form of cyber ranting is interesting to fans and followers, could this also have a negative effect of being detrimental to the sport, or paint the tweeter in a bad light?
