The Test That Should Not Have Been

Deep Outrage is an understatement of what I feel about this last test match between India and Australia.

I consider the third umpire’s behavior (by not ruling Symonds out) a grave violation of all that umpires stand for – integrity, committment and the power to observe. Something that viewers across the globe were able to see within 3 action replays, a third umpire could have taken 10 replays to consider. This man decided to rule incorrectly on the basis of 6 replays. Do we need such umpires in world cricket? Whats the point of using technology if its sold to such blind impostors!

I think Bucknor should be disgraced and thrown out of umprining panels. The man anyway has the longest reaction time amongst all umpires. He looks like he watches 15 replays in his head without needing any technology and makes all sorts of wrong decisions. Hallucinating pig!

It is said that your company does rub off on you. I saw that happening to Benson. Bucknor is the only phenomenon that can explain what Benson was seeing happen in India’s second innings. Or a bit of Marijuana!

I consider this Australian team’s behavior as that of a bunch of sports-people who at the top of their game will never be able to become great sportsmen, because they lack integrity and humility. Because they are shit scared of something. And yes – I think they are bitches who love barking integrity at the drop of a hat. Suckers dont like being paid back in their own currency. So they report people like Sreesanth and Harbhajan. But the blistering nincompoops do the same sledging all the time.

Its funny how Proctor, Benson and Bucknor don’t report English abuse, but were too sure about an abuse that Harbhajan would most likely have shot in hindi.

The scorecards and history books would say that India lost this match by 122 runs, when those who saw the game should agree that this Indian team could have probably won the match by 6wkts+. It takes great guts to do that, because there is a lot of money at stake too. But if its about pride, then Indian team should walk out of the third test. Let the history books not show that Indian team lost the series 3-0. All it would say is that the third test was abandoned because India decided to protest against the blatant incompetence of umpires and the unsporting attitude of the most successful team in International Cricket. Ozzies can beat the performances of the West Indian team of yesteryears, but never their greatness!

    I am ok with being perceived as bullies as long as the end result is a fair and square one! you cant take all crap lying down


  2. I know how you felt then. I felt the same way. But looking back now, we shouldn’t have pouted the way we did, because we are perceived as the bullies and using our financial clout to further our interests – kind of people
