Sachin Tendulkar…Taufel Shocker!!

sachin_salute1.jpgThe maestro misses another (38)century.He got out on 91.  After playing a patience yet a masterful innings ,he got out to a wrong decision to Simon Taufel just after lunch.the ball pitched outside the stumps ,tendulkar was looking towards the ball as he was sure ..he is not out ..but to his amazement,simon gave him out after a delayed thought.paul collingwood was the bowler…tendulkar was eventually dazed at the decision.he walked back to the pavilion with a huge disappointment.India were well placed at 342/4 but  poor lbw decision prevented yet another feather in the maestro’s book.

Overnight ,the legend piled up his 11000th run.saurav and sachin batted resolutely and helped India to stretch their lead.Meanwhile india are in a commanding positon.Sunil Gavaskar commented “a true shocker from the umpire who has won the ICC’s best umpire award for three years in succession. And this is not just one incident, even Dravid’s decision in the second innings of the first match was a bad one”.but ya this is for sure he on ce again silenced the critics {may be for a fortnight 🙂  }
