How do players pressure the umpire? Give us some examples.
If the umpire’s body language is such that it comes through that I am the boss, I am controlling this game, then I think the players can’t do much about it.
Have you ever faced it?
To give you one incident. In this match between Australia and West Indies at Adelaide, there was a huge appeal off Glenn McGrath. About seven Australian players went up and I said, "not out". So they waited for the replay on the big screen. Glenn walked past me after that and said, "Venks he was nowhere near the ball". I said, "yeah Glenn I know that, now go on and finish the over". Gillespie bowled the next over and in Glenn’s over after that, there was again this huge appeal. The fine leg went up for that. I again said, "not out" and again they looked at the screen. Glenn again walked past me and said, "Venks I’m happy somebody is watching this match".
