Billy Bowden was looking like a confused Traffic policeman in the game. He gave Sharma out which was correct then asked him to stay and crossed his hands secondly before that when Sachin was hit on helmet and ball was caught by aus fielder he moved from position and asked for the ball . It would have been ok if it was last ball of over but that was not the case.

I am not a fan of Dhoni,but if famed batting line up has failed what dhoni can do about that?U want him to teach Sachin,Gauti,virat and company of how to bat?
R.Jadeja was picked up by CSK. BCCI president and Chief of Selectors are both CSK guys. So Dhoni was given strict intstruction to pick up R.Jadeja at all costs. R.Jadeja can't bowl or bat well. But he will be picked for all matches. Dhoni is giving rubbish excuses. Gauti is not a slow mover on the field. Dhoni is under pressure form N.Srinivasan and Srikanth to reserve one place for R.Jadeja. If Jadeja s dropped it will be an insult to CSK. So Dhoni is using this ridiculous rotation policy.
He has missed the right time for retirement ,that was after the WC.In the future ,He will always be remembered as a team member who was invoved in 2 Successive WhiteWashes .Now even if he retires today,History cannot be changed.He is the only one to blame by opting money over Grace.Many people are still writing that he should retire gracefully but my question is there any Grace Left??
couldnt understand ho this guy was left out - also couldnt understand how aussies coming into a game perform so well but Indians coming new perform so so always. For example Rohit, Raina, Yadav, Jadeja - none of them have performed well but this hilfenhaus guy plays in place of mckay and performs right away.

agreed with your thoughts I don't understand why Dhoni's is revealing such sensitive information to the media, it is certainly going to divide the players in the dressing room. Dhoni himself missed few run-out opportunities in yesterday's match.
