The clash between India and Australia has always been an interesting one. It was considered too hard to beat the Australians, who were considered invincible in a time.

And if Indian former batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar is playing against Australian veteran bowlers Shane Warne or Glenn McGrath, then the match ultimately used to grab people eyes. There were many times when 'god of cricket' has been the victim of wrong decisions of the umpire.

Similar incident took place in a match against Australia but at that time he was called back by the present umpire. It was a time of 2006 when India and Australia were battling in the DLF Cup in Kuala Lumpur. The tournament included the West Indies, besides the two countries. In the sixth match of the series, the Australian team batted first, scored a score of 213 against India. Matthew Hayden scored 54 runs off 66 balls.

Brad Haddin and Hogg batted on the lower order to give the team a respectable score. It was not a big score for Team India who came out to chase the target of 214. But at that time, Australia was considered to be a dominating team.

In order to chase the target, Sachin and Sehwag came to crease to open the inning and when India scored on 6 runs, McGrath made an appeal to umpire after which umpire gave his decision and raise his finger towards Sachin. Including his fan, the master blaster himself, was not sure about this decision but Sachin started walking towards pavilion.

Since the umpire had doubts on his decision, he consulted the other umpire. When looking at the replays, it was found that the ball did not fall on Sachin's bat, but on his shoulder when he was caught in the hands of the wicketkeeper.

So the umpire changed his decision and recalled Sachin on crease. Seeing this, the whole team, including then Aussies captain Ricky Ponting became shocked.
