IndvsAus: India have to take bad decisions on the chin, says Haddin

Melbourne: Slamming India's cries of bad decisions coming their way, former Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin has said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni's side should learn to live with the wrong calls as they continue to oppose the Decision Review System.

India have been at the receiving end of many umpiring errors even as they have refused to accept the DRS in its current form, asserting its not foolproof.

The latest umpiring howler was when George Bailey was not given out by Richard Kettleborough after debutant pacer Bairnder Sran got the Australian caught behind down the leg side with Dhoni gloving the white ball in the first ODI in Perth.

Bailey went on to score a century and match-winning partnership with Steven Smith to hand the tourists a five-wicket loss.
Haddin has responded to India's reluctance at accepting the DRS and then crying foul. "India are the ones that don't want it, so they've got to live with these decisions," Haddin told Sky Sports Radio yesterday.

"They can scream as much as they want about whether it's a conspiracy or that world cricket is against them, but they don't want DRS so they are going to have to cop those sort of decisions on the chin."
