    Rohit Sharma fined 10%

    Rohit Sharma was found guilty of violating clause 1.3 of the ICC's code of conduct and he was fined 10% of his match fee for showing dissent at an umpire's decision in the game against Sri Lanka yesterday.

    I wonder if there was any attempt by the Indian representatives (Rohit Sharma & the manager, Chetan Chauhan) to tell Jeff Crowe (who has previously let off Brett Lee despite being a repeat level-1 offender and Ricky Ponting for disgracefully attempting to get the on-field umpires to re-refer a decision to the third umpire) that Rohit Sharma was terribly disappointed that Rudi Koertzen (who has a habit of apologizing after screwing up with his decisions) gave him out stumped when his foot was very firmly behind/in the crease.

    The sub-text is that Rohit Sharma was bloody obviously not out caught, since he never even touched the ball! This is yet another instance of the hopeless quality of umpiring, especially in the last few months.

    At least someone like Rohit Sharma is unlikely to be dropped on the basis of one duck. There are several instances of players not being considered after an inning or two, or after bowling a handful of overs, in international cricket. How likely is it that some of those players copped horrendous decisions from the umpires?
