Ups and Downs from India's Australian Cricket Tour

An Indian Fan's view of the ups and downs

Up

  1. India did well without their seniors in the ODIs
  2. Tendulkar helped India win two finals
  3. Dhoni led from the front
  4. Harbhajan Singh managed to dodge charges leveled against him without evidence
  5. India let Brag Hogg go, even though he used abusive words against the Indian captain
  6. Bad umpiring was penalized. Steve Bucknor got his well deserved punishment for bad umpiring (long due, he seemed biased against India)
  7. Hayden was reprimanded for denigrating an Indian player
  8. Australian public criticized the spirit of the Australian Cricket team for unfair play

Down

  1. Adam Gilchrist, a well respected cricketer retired
  2. Michael Clarke got away, even though he tackled Tendulkar in the finals
  3. Symonds seemed out of form
  4. Ricky Ponting seemed out of form
  5. Australian players got away by claiming catches that they really failed to hold on to
  6. Australian media for looking foolish after every charge they leveled against the Indian team players were waved off
