Not a bad game of cricket, that.

UPDATE. Indian fans are unhappy. The Hindu:

Despite the defeat, Kumble and his men can still take heart from the fact that they fought against more than just 11 adversaries.

And Vice-President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India Rajiv Shukla:

We need to take a hard look at all decisions. Those of Dravid and Sourav’s are shocking. This is not the way umpiring is done.

Sourav Ganguly seemed out to me; Dravid definitely not.

UPDATE II. Sky News gets a little carried away:

A late hat-trick from Michael Clarke has seen Australia win the second test against India at the Sydney Cricket Ground by 122 runs.

UPDATE III. The India Times:

It seemed Team India is up against two teams, Australia and the Umpires. Had umpiring been up to the mark, the Border-Gavaskar series might have been levelled in Sydney … It’s time BCCI took substantial action against poor umpiring. Raise your voice loud and clear and we’ll send your opinion to the BCCI.

Here’s an idea; instead of appointing neutral umpires, appoint the best umpires.

UPDATE IV. Furious over “the most disgraceful test I’ve ever known”, Bangalore computer scientist Nishit Desai lashes out:

Ganguly is playing the superb knock to save the test match and has just completed his half century. Suddenly the ball takes outside edge and flies to third slip, where the ball not once but TWICE touches the ground before Clarke completes the catch.

Mr Desai might be imagining things. One of his readers demands reprisals:

Australians must be banned from playing cricket for next two years in all international level by ICC. Also umpires should be criminally procecuted and later publically executed.
