Indian cricketers cannot act like they’re gods on the field
Keshava D Guha in In a league of his own (June 15) holds Sachin Tendulkar responsible for India’s opposition to UDRS. The situation demands that senior players in India should clarify the reasons for opposing UDRS. Tendulkar is right in insisting on hot spot which can make the game attractive while bringing accuracy to decisions. But if more than 90% players are in favour of UDRS, then Indian players cannot possibly have enough reason to resist it.

During a series in Sri Lanka a couple of years ago, Tendulkar had appealed against all the LBW decisions against him and lost all of them. MS Dhoni also appealed against a decision and lost. Either our players do not know the rules or think they are infallible.

Get it out of the dock
Now that Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa has made it clear that home minister P Chidambaram’s election victory is being contested in the Madras High Court since 2009, it is important that the matter is resolved without too much delay (PC election a fraud, he should quit, June 15). Chidambaram has already completed a third of his full term. The judiciary should act quick and fast.
