Do you have to snarl?

Australian cricketers: Do you really have to snarl?

I saw your victory over the old enemy, England, on TV this morning but couldn’t understand why your bowlers had to pretend to be angry after each ball, snarling at the English batsmen.

Even more, why did whoever was at mid on had to give a non stop verbal tirade against the batsman?

OK you won, deservedly, after 9 (or was it 90?) matches without a win, and you are now one up in the series.
It’s not over, as they say until the fat lady sings. If anger  motivates your team it may just be another 9  (or was it 90?) matches before you win again, and that would be sad for sport.

But good, it has to be said, for your maturity.
