Mike HusseySYDNEY – He had as much reason as any to lament the lack of a decision review system during the Boxing Day Test against India, but Australian batsman Mike Hussey has applauded the umpire’s work in Melbourne.
Hussey appeared to be on the receiving end of a harsh caught-behind decision in the first innings of Australia’s 122-run win in Melbourne, given out for a first-ball duck despite replays suggesting that he hadn’t edged through to Indian wicketkeeper MS Dhoni.
But rather than slamming the lack of technological aids, Hussey paid tribute to umpires Ian Gould and Marais Erasmus.
“I’d have to say that I think the umpires did an outstanding job. They’ve got to make a decision within a split second on what they see and they don’t have the benefit of doing the slow-mo replays, having the technology to make their decision.”
