Plea to take action against Steve Bucknor, Mark Benson and Mike Procter sign now

India is a cricket loving nation and believes in playing fair cricket. India has more cricket watchers than the whole population of Australia, New Zealand, West Indies and United Kingdom combined. We expect the countries against whom we play to be playing fair cricket.

Australia has been known time and again been proven as poor losers. They have time and again resorted to unfair practices in order to win. If the umpires are unbiased then the result is worth watching despite the unfair efforts by the Australians.

We the undersigned wish to bring to your notice that the 2nd Test: Australia v India at Sydney, Jan 2-6, 2008 has seen too much of umpire error to be overlooked. The umpires Steve Bucknor and Mark Benson have made errors on multiple occasions.

The umpires, Mark Benson and Steve Bucknor, did not hear what Harbhajan said, but still charged Harbhajan with a level III offence after a complaint from Australian management.

The incidents of the same can be found in all the newspapers, some of the links are below for your ready referral,21985,23012925-11088,00.html

And some videos below.

The commentators could clearly be seen voicing their anger against the same (including but not limiting to call this an imperfect test and poor and biased umpiring)

We the undersigned have decided not to take these incidents lying down. If the much justified action against the two erring umpires is not taken then we decide that we will boycott the matches against Australia. If you decide not to take action against the umpires then we would like to know the reason for the same.

Since BCCI has not taken the matter up officially we the undersigned wish to take the matter up to the ICC so that its clear that we cannot take things which are unfair.

We also will withdraw the petition if BCCI decides to take this matter up officially.

    I fail to understand this thing about an agreement to take the fielders word in case of a doubt. Why only a fielder? In the case the batsman's word should also be considered. Ask Dravid if he had nicked or not, before ruling him out ! City Kolkata
