[AustraliaFilter and CricketFilter] What are the Aussie cricket fans chanting in the SCG stands?
posted by vidur to Sports, Hobbies, & Recreation (7 answers total) 1 user marked this as a favorite
I was at the SCG yesterday, and I couldn't understand the cheers/chants of Aussie fans at all. There was one in particular that sounded like a repetition of a 2-syllable word (-O-O) shouted while pointing at another group of fans (not sure if pointing at Indian fans, or Aussie ones, or even a fielder at the boundary). There were many others, of course, that I didn't get.
Can someone enlighten me about the goings on? I am going again today, and it would be good to know what's being said/sung.
