Although disappointed with the umpiring standards in the ongoing second cricket Test against Australia , the Indian team management has decided not to lodge an official protest in the matter.
"We are surely disappointed at the umpiring seen in this Test which could have a bearing on the outcome of this match but we surely are not lodging an official protest on it," the team's media manager MV Sridhar said on Thursday.
BCCI vice president Rajiv Shukla had stated on Wednesday that the team management would be asked to report the matter officially but there seems to have been a rethink on the issue.
Several umpiring mistakes on the opening day of the Test cost Indians dearly as Andrew Symonds was reprieved twice and went on to score an unbeaten 162 to take Australia to a total of 463.
