i remember the commentators saying maybe the ball of his foot was behind the line on the ground. there wasn't daylight when the bails were completely dislodged which is how it's meant to be to be given out. there was a bit of daylight when the bails started to be dislodged but they couldn't tell whether there was daylight when the bails were completely off. i think there was just enough doubt to give the benefit to the batsman. imo it's a decision that could have gone either way.

whateve happened with the umpiring decisions but in Record Books ,it will go down as an Indian Loss.

Saving the match was so near yet a bizarre twist of tales unfolded and ohh la la India lost 3 wkts in one over.Due credit to Clarke's spin bowling in that over.

The agony will remain that India couldn't save it,oh how I wish Bhajji could have hold for 1 over more.

Still,Congrats to Australia for their 16th win in a row.

was such a good match made more exciting by the controversy (it started to become more like a battle) it's one of those matches where it sucks that one team lost. at the start of the day they were interviewing gavin robertson and he said he thought it would go down to the last 5 mins, well his prediction wasn't far off.

For GOD's sake BCCI look behind money. They should call off the tour unless the result of this match is cancelled. B&B banned from umpiring in all form of cricket. Ponting and co should apologize for cheating. Call me racist but Ponting and co today proved what their ancestor was.

Rightly said! I think BCCI should just call off the series or award the series 4-0 to Ozs. Let them be happy. Dont worry Punter will never apologize, their ancestors never taught them how to do that.Hail Ponting the leader of crooks. You have showed the world know how to win matches.

I must admit these two teams are my least favourite, but what Australia did was the most atrocious load of crap I've seen on a cricket field. It all goes back to club cricket. I've played club here, and from an early age they tell you it's okay to not walk, and to sledge. They're growing up just they way they've been taught to. They have disgraced the game of cricket.

Not me. He is a brilliant captain and a great batsman.

He may seem arrogant but he and his team earned it big time. When they say proudly "We are the best" they are merely telling you the real fact.

Spot on. That said, the umpiring in this series makes the best possible arguments for "the player's challenge", maybe more than just 3 per innings.

I don't like this "win at any cost" attitude by the Aussies... it's quite unfair IMO and it's the first step to cheating.

And I also think that the technology should be used to improve umpiring: there is no sense in accepting an umpire decision on a dismissal when a TV reply is showing that it's a wrong one.

Aus was on he 'win at any cost' mode....

in the last few overs anything hitting the pad wud have been given lbw
as I said earlier Ponting probably had a gun in his pocket to shoot the tail enders as a last resort....

how can Aus take the glory out of this match? this is such a disgrace. I think thats where we subcontinentals differ from the 'gentlemen' .....

As much as I don't support India or Australia, I do feel the pain of Indian fans here.

India should go to ICC for the umpiring errors in this match. Knowing them, they've probably reported it already.

Yes Kabir and as a result Bucknor has been removed from the next match. The next focus is of course Bhajji's ban and whats being reported right now is correct, BCCI will own the match referee's a** this time.

New levels of mediocrity.

Harbhajan is being used as a bargaining chip by the ICC to ensure Bucknor and Benson's survival.

This case will back fire very bad on ICC. I guess India should consider going to the sports tribunal once. Will be fun. But I dont think it will be necessary. ICC will soon step back and apologize.

I don't think it's that bad to ask Ponting if the catch was clean.. He DID concede that two catches that most people assumed to be out, were in fact not out.
He didnt do it out of favour. He knew they would be spotted but then he could have tried not being honest and who knows it might have worked.

Steve Bucknor has been replaced by Asad Rouf of Pakistan to conduct the third test match in Perth (as per Star news). But the fate of Benson is not yet decided.

Here is the summary of decisions

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxS83nO90wE

well battled india, against all the odds.

I would have been prouder if they had drawn the test match somehow.

But got to give it to this aussies, though i hate to do it, for taking 3 wickets in teh last over of the match, that too with michael clark. Shld we say it was the aussie luck or pontings brain ??

If only dravid and gangu had stayed a bit more, we would be seeing a different result here . Well played my team, well fought kumble, agaist 4 umpires and ponting as the 5th umpire, you fought against all the odds.

Bucknor shld be fired immdly from ICC and benson shld be given a firm warning.

Ponting the cheater, shld be ashamed to keep a straight face and talk to the media.

cheers!
Padosan

Ganguly should have said- who the hell is Ponting? to the umpire. why are they taking his word for it? whats the harm in seeing the tv replay and asking 3rd umpire

I miss Dada the captain. Just like SW (my favourite captain) Ponting would get his own medicine . Kumble is too gentle
