NO. One can not blame the Umpires for that. It is very difficult for any umpire to give the benefits of doubt in the conditions Sachin played his shots. Mind you the umpires have very few seconds to give his verdict. He has no TV replays. I am sure one who has indepth knowlege of cricket will blame only Sachin for that. Do not go by the replays....Put yourself in the umpire shoes and decide.

Any batsmen who shuffles half will never get the benefit of doubts, Sachin exectly did the same. He was half forward. Had he been fully stretched, he certainly would have got the benefits of all doubts which a batsman deserved.

So NEVER blame Umpire. Sachin must improve upon his batting skills and try to be more forward while completing his shots. And he would do it in the next match.

LBW....whether it's Leg Before Wicket or Love Before Wedding......the probabilities for going wrong especially when the time available to decide is very less, is very high. And our Sachin should stop shuffling across and try to force the ball to offside.. he should improvise which if he is still inclined to learn, will do. In the case of both LBWs mentioned above, it's always better to consult the elders / third umpire / person and decide.
