Hobart:

Fans throng stadia to watch intense cricket but players have to ensure that their aggression doesn't cross the threshold and sully game, Pakistan bowling coach Waqar Younis said here on Tuesday.

The acrimonious WACA Test between Australia and the West Indies saw sparks flying with Caribbean spinner Suleiman Benn copping a two-ODI ban and home side players Shane Watson, Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson being fined for bringing the game into disrepute.

Australian captain Ricky Ponting too felt embarrassed by the behaviour of some of his teammates and asked them to mend their ways.

Younis said he did not mind intense cricket as long as no one overstepped the line.

"In a way it is nice to see because you want to see aggressive cricket, and you want to see positive cricket and people wanting to win the game. As long as it is not dirty, that is what you to want to see," Waqar said during Pakistan's warm-up game here.

"I don't mind our boys getting out there and taking the other teams on," the former captain was quoted as saying by the Australian Associated Press (AAP).
