wrong umpiring decisions and india's in a spot of bother. have ur say.

i'm not sure whether rahul dravid's decision was right or not but sachin was NOT OUT. it was a bad umpiring decision which has come back to haunt the indian team especially sachin tendulkar. earlier i thought it was steve bucknor who was a villianous figure for indian cricket but now i feel its aleem dar. i know i'm being a bit harsh on him but he's almost ruined d match for india and it would take herculian effort frm d bowlers now to win d match. do u think the match referee should intervene when its clear dat d player is not out?

Yes, I believe both the decisions were poor, but then that is where the others had to put up their hand and perform. They failed to do so. I mean how long can we continue to look at Sachin, Saurav and Dravid as our match winners!! We need to get a move on and as Dravid says the youngsters need to take charge and break open the door for selection!! Cheers! Ram

yes i agree with you guys...someone other than sachin , ganguly, dravid, should fire... some one needs to come good ... if they fails .... its impossible for them to fire in every game ..... so someone...plse put ur hands pup and say iam there.... and talking abt the umpire ... decision.... why in the world it happens all the time to the best batsmen... sachin ....

well, ram continuing with our discussion, a couple of quick wickets could easily lay back the best of teams and a quick recovery/consolidation followed by a leatherhunt is asking for too much.. After the top 4 we were only left with yuvraj, uthappa and dhoni.. and Dhoni fired among the three with other two failing.. it happens in cricket and I thought hard luck hit India in the form of poor umpiring decisions..

Yep, Today's match has been a joke.. Its a shame that the series decider had to end this way..Aleem Dar has effectively ruined the outcome of the match by giving two bad decisions in quick succession. when you lose 4 top batsmen it is not easy to pick up the pace and whack the bowlers all around the park while consolidating your position.. Aleem Dar, I thought hasn't been too bad an umpire but he put a severe dent to his reputation with today's performance of his.. Alas! if only technology could be used, the outcome could have been different..
