Sehwag fined, Lara fine!

While Sehwag was fined for excessive appealing, the match referee thought Lara’s on field behavior was perfectly Ok. This is completely ridiculous to say the least. Its a clear sign that the referee simply didn’t have the guts to take on the local hero. I hope the BCCI or the team management would at least make their displeasure known to avoid such inconsistencies in the future!

Regarding Dhoni’s dismissal (which triggered Lara’s tantrums), shouldn’t the benefit of doubt have gone to the batsman when the on-field umpires and the third umpire could not make a decision?
