My sincere and earnest request to all the dictionary makers out there...Please replace the word Blunder in all your dictionaries with the word Bucknor...not much of a difference but the meaning will be all the more clear, even for people who do not understand English at all!
And Mr. Mike Procter, did no one teach you how to count? When four out of six people say they have not heard anything racist (Ricky Ponting, Sachin Tendulkar and the Umpires), it means the majority...2 out of 6 does not mean majority...and u shud take a decision based on what the majority tells you. Of course if you believe that the two umpires who could not hear any of the edges that were heard by the grandmother living in the next lane could not hear this also, I wholeheartedly support you. You can now hang a board saying 'If someone is taking Aussie wickets too frequently, they deserve to be banned'.
And regards the series, I lost out on so much sleep waking up at 5am in the morning to savor what I thought would be a great game of cricket. Instead I got to see loads of human errors (most of which go against Indians) and an insult to our ancestors...If it is true that we did descend from the apes, calling Andrew Symonds a monkey is an insult to mankind and the monkeykind too!
