Dhoni banned for SL clash

M.S. Dhoni has been suspended for the second time this tour for a slow over rate and will miss India's vital clash with Sri Lanka tomorrow.

The India captain was handed a one-match ban by the ICC after his team was deemed two overs behind the required rate.

The sanction capped off a terrible night for the tourists and followed a farcical situation where the tourists were on the wrong end of a decision from the third umpire.

Michael Hussey was halfway back to the pavilion after being given out stumped by third umpire Bruce Oxenford when he was told by umpires Billy Bowden, officiating at square leg, then Steve Davis to return to the crease.

This sparked a heated discussion between Bowden and the normally placid Dhoni, who was clearly aggrieved at the overrule.

A malfunction was later blamed for Hussey being given out.

''I just told the umpire, it's difficult to be an umpire if you're on the field but if you're sitting in an air-conditioned room and have the luxury of having the replays in front of you then take whatever time you want,'' Dhoni said of his conversation with Bowden.

The drama started when Bowden called for the third umpire to adjudicate on an appeal for a line-ball stumping against Hussey, then on one, in the 29th over.

The side-on replay proved inconclusive as to whether Hussey had his back foot grounded behind the crease. Stump cam appeared to show his back foot raised though it was not apparent when the bails were raised. (Source: Sydney Morning Herald)
