Former Australian umpire Daryl Harper gave Sachin Tendulkar an LBW despite being hit on the shoulder in 1999. For this reason, Harper is always remembered in India, but he has no regrets about this decision. Harper said that I had taken the decision according to the rule. However, later I had nightmares for several days. Sachin and Glenn McGrath used to dream.
In this Test match played in Adelaide, Australia defeated India by 285 runs. Sachin was captaining in this series.
Sachin was opened without an account
Sachin scored 61 runs in the first innings of the Test, while McGraw was lbw at the ball without opening the account in the second inning. Sachin sat down to avoid McGrath's short ball and the ball hit his shoulder. Harper was given out when the Australian team appealed.
I'm proud of this decision: Harper
"I see that Tendulkar verdict every day," Harper said in a chat to Asianet Newsable. It was not that I had not slept. I was having bad dreams. Replay was on my mind. I used to see a painting of Sachin and McGrath on the way. I gave the decision according to the rules in the match without getting scared by anyone. I am proud of this decision. Maybe you are sad to know this. "
Sachin has 15921 in 200 Tests, 18426 runs in 463 ODIs. He scored 10 runs in the only T20. Sachin has scored 2334 runs in 78 matches of IPL.
Sachin also said that he is really out
The former umpire said, "After the match, the ICC official told me that he had not noted his decision for analysis." I met then BCCI Chief Selector MSK Prasad in December 2018 in the same beautiful ground (Adelaide) after 20 years. He told me that after the match, Sachin said that he was really out. Then Prasad also said that I also felt that he was out. "In the 1999 match, wicketkeeper Prasad was playing his fourth Test.
