    Tendulkar ducks dismissal controversy

    ADELAIDE: Indian captain Sachin Tendulkar refused to buy into the
    row over his controversial dismissal on Monday in his team's first test
    loss to Australia, despite widespread condemnation of the decision
    by India's fanatical cricket supporters. The master batsman was
    given out without scoring late on the fourth day of the first test at
    Adelaide Oval after ducking into an attempted bouncer from Aussie
    paceman Glenn McGrath. But the ball did not bounce as high as
    expected, skidding through and striking the Indian skipper on the
    shoulder as he was crouching down. Australian umpire Daryl Harper,
    who also gave Tendulkar out in the first innings, hesitated for some
    time before raising his finger. When asked about the decision and the
    row it had created it back in India, Tendulkar graciously shrugged it
    off though he admitted he was a little disappointed. "I think the
    whole world has seen it, I don't think I should be talking much about
    it," Tendulkar said shortly after India crashed to a 285-run loss in
    the first of three tests. "I was disappointed so I didn't look at the
    replay at all. I thought it was the only ball in the match which kept
    low."
    You can't fix stupid. So might as well troll them!
