what undeserving criticism? he was poo.
He wasn't even singled out. Was not that harsh of a comment tbh.
Cue Chris Broad to Ban Dhoni for a match or something now.
In any case he was going off the Elite panel after the test match ,and will be replaced by a supposed better umpire.
Was a likeable chap though ,but never shirked the attention so may have wanted one last Hyping/Remembering moment by this.
Well Dhoni was the one objecting DRS so he has no room to be complaining about wrongful decisions.
Maybe Dhoni was on about PK being warned and banned from bowling in the 1st innings?
Billy Doctrove had a couple of shockers in the England-Sri Lanka series. All soon forgotten because they were overturned.
I'm sorry to see someone's career heading for the plughole like this, and Harper's always seemed a decent sort of cove.
I've never thought he's really been up to the standard of Test cricket. But I was interested to read in the article that the stats show his decision-making in Tests involving India has been significantly above the average of his peers.
As for MS Dhoni's comment -
- I'd like to think that's out of character. I think Dhoni's better than that.You know I can only say, if the correct decisions were made, the game would have finished much earlier and I would have been in the hotel by now.

Bahaha. If that isn't bringing the game into disrepute then what is? Surely captain fantastic will be hit with some sort of fine or ban in the coming day's........You know I can only say, if the correct decisions were made, the game would have finished much earlier and I would have been in the hotel by now.

bad umpiring has no place in international cricket, these umpires are called elite for a reason... if udrs can justify their bad calls, why the need for elite umps? a bun can also do the honors....
Dhoni's comments were way out of line and did come across quite poor should have been reprimanded for it imo.
