Raina was out – Mahela

Raina was given not out by umpire Kumar Dharmasena, who turned down a loud appeal by the Sri Lankans and even warned wicketkeeper Dinesh Chandimal. "I thought we had Suresh caught behind," Jayawardene said. But I don’t know how others felt it. That’s how the game goes," Jayawardene added.

Dharmasena had a poor game which was surprising because he's had a great year!

I wonder it he was under pressure because he was the home umpire.

kumara messed it up looool, @Sanki8OH8 yes most of SL umpires tend to b biased towards the visiting side in order to show the world dat they r NEUTRAL. this has happened before in matches in SL, the local umpire favoring the visitors.

am sure kumara WUD NOT have uttered a word if chandimal was the indian keeper who charged the umpire loool. pathetic.

PS: mind u he still is one of the better umpires produced by SL, it's just the above mentioned reason hampers him when umpiring in SL

Mahela has only got his own medicine. How do you expect some body else to walk when you do not do it? How many times had Mahela taken the advantage by ill using the technology that should have been used to uplift the game? Ultimately when that facility is no longer available, he complains!!Cry baby!!Go Home!!!

1.Raina was not out (correct decision was made KD ,no hard evidence to give that out )
2.Kohli should have given LBW (no doubt about it )
3.DRS is a must(indians like to cheat admit it you indians ,don't tell this fantasy stories like " 100% accurate technology ")
4.Dharmasena should warn chandimal he can't charge like that , but chandi is a youngster he will learn from this mistakes that's what matters .
5.we should admit that our poor fielding cost us the game.not poor umpiring (umpiring errors expected since there's no DRS)

dan true Uppercut_7 ..he's been like that from the beginning of his umpiring career .. Dicky bird is Known as the best umpire ever not because he was biased towards to opposition nation .. if this is the way dharmasena is approaching to make him a good name .he's diluted
