Do you have faith in professional sport?

Rabiya Parekh | 12:45 UK time, Monday, 21 August 2006

We've just had our meeting and although there is little doubt about what the big talking point in the UK is today we struggled to find a way to open it up as a global debate.The Pakistani captain, Inzamam Al-Huq takes questions from reporters

As Kev mentioned in his earlier post, there is much talk amongst cricketing circles following Pakistans refusal to take to the field for the final session of their match against England, in protest at being penalised for ball-tampering.

Listening to the debate on BBC Radio 5 Live this morning and the BBC's Asian Network, the views ranged from fans being outraged that the Pakistani's let them down to applauding them for their stand. So where do you stand on this debate?

We're also going to open the debate up a bit and ask you about your faith in professional sport. In recent weeks we've had controversy in athletics , both on and off the track. A drugs scandal in cycling. As a fan of any sport, do you almost have to accept that the rules will be bent? Dave Hill writing in today's Guardian certainly thinks it's inevitable.

Should passengers have a say on who fly's on planes?

We're also asking for your reaction to the story of two men Asian men who were taken off a flight bound for Manchester because passengers were concerned that they were acting suspiciously.

It got us thinking about how you would react if you felt people you were travelling on public transport with were acting suspiciously? Would you call for them to be removed?

And have you been the victim of such action? What happened? How did it make you feel? Can you understand people's suspicion?

Get in touch here, we look forward to hearing from you.
