ICC decides to charge India


The International Cricket Council has decided to take action against Indian team manager Vinod Phadke because of his violation of ICC code of conduct regarding showing dissent against Umpires decision in the ongoing series against South Africa.

This might be the first instance after a very long time that a substantial form of action has been taken against the Indian cricket.

Umpire Kulkarni is in the thick of things these days due to his shabby decisions in the T20 and ODI series. He gave a plumb out decision against Duminy as not out while also giving Dhawan out in the first ODI when he the ball was slipping down the leg side.

Vinod’s remarks regarding the umpire were  (via ESPNcricinfo)

“I have not seen the captain’s report, but I am going to mention him in my report,”

“It is obvious to everybody that the umpiring has not been good.”
