Angry Was It Tendu who decided bad light

This is the first time I have seen a batsman almost deciding bad light by himself. The umpires and batsmen almost started to walk when Tendu "called for bad light". Mr Bowden almost checked lights walking towards pavillion!!

We could have two in two balls just before that, first Tendu's miscued pull landed safely and indecision by fielders, then the very next ball a plumb lbw wasnt given against ishant. And suddenly at the end of over Tendu decided lights. Sakib stretched his hands in frustration. The commentators were saying light is better than actually when they started!

Classic example of an influential player deciding for the umpires

Take it easy. As a fan of the ordinary team, I have no other option except grudgingly accept the fact that if we are to win, we will have to win fighting against the opposition as well as all the umpiring injustice. Let's keep fighting and let the biased umpiring inspiring us more to produce more wickets and runs.

You guys are taking this to entirely somewhere else. A batsman reserves the right to complain if he feels the visibility is low. The umpire will offer him the light if the light meter agrees with the batsman.

I have no complaints regarding this. I don't remember any one ever could question Shachin's sportsmanship.

Calm down mate. I don't think it's too bad a thing. If we had bowled them out before the day had finished, our openers would've had a tough few overs to face with the Indian bowlers, who would be charging in with nothing to lose.

light can ALWAYS be asked for by the batsman. he can appeal for bad light and if umpire agrees play is called off. be aware of cricketing rules before shouting bias.

Vai, if ther's any one in the indian dressing room that we shouldn't run our mouth against, It's tendulker. Everybody else is fair game but please don't insult Tendulker since that would be insulting cricket itself.

umpires are 'supposed' to be influenced if the batsman appeals for poor light.

if he knew the rules he won't have complained that the umpire decided to check the light because the batsman asked him to.

Influenced in what sense? It was not a matter of judgement, it was a matter of rule. The umpire does not decide whether the batsman gets the light. The light meter does. The umpire only conveys it to the players. So even if we suppose the umpires were going gaga over Tendulkar's stature, which someone of Billy Bowden's experience would not be, there is no chance of a bias there.

If you read his post carefully, you wont be asking him to be aware of cricket rules.

There is nothing wrong with the Batsmen's decision.
I think Shamim Choudhury, the commentator's comment: "I feels that it is a lot brighter than it was when play started earlier this morning" might have confused some of us.

Th title clearly says that he needs a brush up with the rules. Taking light is 'always' the batsman's call.

And the title does not 'clearly' says he need a lecture on cricket rules, not as it seems to me.
