Sachin Tendulkar unhappy over umpiring - News - News - Times of India Cricket - IPL

NEW DELHI: Mumbai Indians captain Sachin Tendulkar has expressed disappointment with some of the umpiring decisions that were taken during their clash with Kings XI Punjab in Mumbai on Thursday. Mumbai's first innings saw some of the decisions which seemed to be incorrect that included run-outs of D Smith and S Chitnis. And in their second innings, there was another such decision which went against Mumbai's favour. Kings XI Punjab's Luke Pomersback was not given out in spite of a direct hit by Shaun Pollock which TV replays clearly showed him out. "The world saw it, I need not say anything on this," said Sachin Tendulkar. "I would just leave it at that, management has got to do something about it, we are not allowed to say anything. “I would not want to say anything,” said the ace batsman. In response to this, 3rd Umpire Shastri has defended his decision saying he acted as per law ICC 28.1. “I acted as per law and I can’t say anything more to you,” said Shastri.
