Umpiring decisions between Australia and India

Trying to look big to ward off predatorsWrite something ourself about the ho-hum one-day cricket between South Africa and West Indies or just reproduce some quotes from elsewhere about India’s win last week?

People who’ve encountered our legendary capacity for graft first-hand won’t be surprised with the outcome.

A fair point from John at “Opponents complain Australia too often get the rub of the umpiring green. But Perth demonstrated it’s not Australia’s opponents that get bad umpiring decisions – it’s the struggling team. The dominant side creates opportunities, close LBW shouts, plays and misses and near nicks. Inevitably some decisions go their way. So more power to India for dominating Australia.”

So, in summary: More chances = more decisions in your favour, be they correct or otherwise.

And Australia never seem to get those key, match-changing decisions going against them because they usually make sure that they win anyway. Who obsesses over a wrong call when the team still emerges victorious?

The rest of the quotes will follow later. We’ve already become a little bit distracted during the first one.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. You only have to look at the 2005 ashes compaign to see this in full effect. “Mad Eyes” Martyn, had some horrible decisions, but they kept happening because “The England” were in the ascendency..

    Whomsoever applys the strongest pressure, will do so, in every way. (Yes, they will strain loudest in the dunny!).

  2. but somehow peter and others too conveniently forgot the decisions against sachin and dhoni…

    also ponting was dead duck against ishant when he did not offered shot…

    if only i would say rauf was consistent…he was giving LBWs same way through out the match…
