Why India won the Sydney test by 5 wickets

Total non available runs to the scorer due to incompetence of the umpire:

Symonds: -130 (Out on 30, given not out and went on to score 160)
Ponting: -38 (Out on 17, went on to score 55)
Jaffer: -30 (Given out on 0 off a no -ball, averages 30 odd)
Dravid: -17 (Given out on 38, Averages 55)

Total: -215 runs

Subtract this from the Aussie total of 330 and you get a target of 115 runs.

And India was 115-5. So there you have it!

Oh well, if everything worked around pure logic like that. Anyway i am quite happy with how India played, much improved performance from Melbourne.

Ricky Ponting can’t face harbhajan on the field, that’s why he took shelter of match referry to ban bhajji. shame ricky. U r a cheater. U have won the test match with the help of umpires.
