Is Cricket being played in Australia?

India had gone to Australia to play good competitive cricket but they never knew that they had to do many things other than cricket.The kind of tour India has had so far its been really tough,tough for the wrong reason.
First there were about nine wrong decisions given by the umpires, then the claim that Harbajan Singh had given racial comments to Symonds(dont know if its true or not) ,no sporting spirit showed by the australians players.The decoration was done by the ICC Match Refree Mike Proctor as he banned Harbajan Singh for three test matches. The umpires had not heard anything two aussie players claimed that they did hear Bhajji giving racial remarks as bhajji denies that and Sachin too who was there with bhajji at the crease when this incident happened did not hear anything. Indian Team managements points were not taken into consideration and the two aussie players points were taken into consideration.Strange enough! Even in the last session of the play when Australians were trying hard to get wickets and the Indians trying to save the match Brad Hogg abused Dhoni. Indian Team Management have filed a complaint againt him and the hearing will be on the Perth Test Match.BCCI have decided not to call off the tour.
One really has to stop calling australian cricket team the champions.Do they deserve to be called the Champions of the game Cricket,"used to be called a gentlemans game".
