Steve Bucknor out. Team India tour resumes as Harbhajan in.

The BCCI agreed to continue the tour when the ICC caved in to their demands to sack West Indian umpire Steve Bucknor and charge Australian all-rounder Brad Hogg with abusing an Indian player.

ICC decided to remove Steve Bucknor as umpire from India-Australia series, Billy Bowden will replace Bucknor for the rest of the series.
“It is accepted that Steve, and his on-field colleague Mark Benson, did not have good games by their very high standards and we feel that given the added pressure and attention Steve’s presence would have at the third Test, it is better for the match and for Steve himself if he does not take part,” said ICC Chief Executive Malcolm Speed.

Views of Aussie legends:
Some of Australia’s Sports Hall of Fame members like John Bertrand, Herb Elliott and AFL player Rob de Castella are planning to complain to Cricket Australia that the behavior of Ricky Ponting’s team was damaging Australia’s international reputation.

Roebuck writes: “Ricky Ponting must be sacked as captain of the Australian cricket team. If Cricket Australia cares a fig for the tattered reputation of our national team in our national sport, it will not for a moment longer tolerate the sort of arrogant and abrasive conduct seen from the captain and his senior players over the past few days. Beyond comparison it was the ugliest performance put up by an Australian side for 20 years. The only surprising part of it is that the Indians have not packed their bags and gone home. There is no justice for them in this country, nor any manners.” To know more:
