KP cited for dissent

I guess this is why Bangalore's Fly Kingfisher Fair Play Award points were looking so odd after that match with Chennai.

KP was cited for dissent for having a few words about the lbw decision he was given in the match. He faced a disciplinary committee for the incident and was eventually deemed to have had a level one breach of the IPL's code of conduct.

Pietersen said after the match:
“I think I got a little nick on it, but such is life.”
I find that inexplicably hilarious. And sort of awesome. He came out of it looking like the reasonable player.
However, Lalit Modi is flexing his Supreme Powers and has warned all players
“We will take all necessary steps to ensure that the game is played in the true spirit of cricket."
That sounds like Kumble, only stupider. He also had this to say about cricketers in general:
“Cricketers need to realise that they are huge role models for an entire generation of youth."
I don't know about anyone else, but the one thing that frightens me more than little KPs running around is children having Lalit Modi as a role model.

"Hee hee, my trophy."

Harbhajan slapped Sreesanth and escaped with a slap in the wrist. What would happen to a Level 1 dissent?

He'd be forced to endure an hour of non-stop cheerleading.
