It has been reported in newspapers that two times strauss english captain was out caught behind the wicket first at score of 13 and at 98 the bowler was zaheer but was not given out as no indian player made any appeal,if it happens the result would have been different, your view please?
THE BIG QUESTION IS HAD DHONI OR ZAHEER MADE ANY APPEAL ? NO . According to the Laws of Cricket, an umpire may not rule a batsman out unless the fielding side appeals. Hence the Umpires Marais Erasmus and Billy Bowden skipped it .
DEAR RAMESH , YES ,DEFINITELY THERE WAS KNOCK WHEN THE BALL PASSING THROUGH STRAUSS BAT. I HEARD AND SEEN THE REPLAYS , RAVISHASTRI, SANJAY MANJERAKAR AND NASSAR HUSSAIN WERE COMMENTED ABOUT IT . CHINNA SWAMI STADIUM IS BIG AND EXTRA NOISES WERE ALSO THERE . SO MS DHONI DID NOT HEAR ANY KNOCK, IF HE DID APPEAL FOR IT , NO DOUBT the result would have been different,

Ya! right. Perhaps Indians played a hopeless cricket that night. Score like 338 could have easily been defended with the use of basics. Not only the issue of these two lapses, but many are analyzed now. Don't make any mess of that . Let us back our team.
