ICC calls for a stress free cricket in Indo-Aussie series

October 9, 2008

The apex Cricket governing body of the world cricket made an appeal to play the upcoming test matches between India and Australia without any tension or unfriendliness. The principal body for the game of cricket wants to make sure that all the bad blood created due to some untoward incidents in Australia last summer must be left behind and cricket must be played in a true gentleman spirit.

The International Cricket Council(ICC) kept its promise by not nominating umpires Mark Benson and Steve bucknor to officiate in the forthcoming test series due to begin from 9th of October. The twosome gave some controversial decisions in the contentious test match played in Sydney and which almost forced the Indian cricket team to pull out of the left over test matches. The match also the ugly head of racial discrimination being raised once again.

Before the start of the test match in Sydney, the two playing teams agreed on a principle that the teams will go by the version of the fielder who has got hold of the catch. However, Ricky Ponting made it clear about the functionality of this principle in the test series to be played.

According to ICC roster, Asad Rauf and Rudi Koertzen from Pakistan & South Africa will be umpiring in the tests to be played at Mohali & Bangalore whereas Aleem Dar & Billy Bowden will officiate in test matches at Nagpur & Delhi. Match referee for the whole test series would be Chris Broad from England.
