India files complaint with ICC: Pawar

Sydney:

India has filed a strong complaint with the ICC against bad umpiring decisions during the second Test between India and Australia in Sydney, BCCI president Sharad Pawar told NDTV.

Indians have also accused Brad Hogg of using 'abusive' words during the match. Team India lodged formal complaint against Hogg during the ongoing Harbhajan Singh's hearing.

"We hope ICC will take our complaint seriously," said Pawar.

The hearing into Brad Hogg's conduct will be held on Monday.

Hearing on Harbhajan soon

The International Cricket council is holding a hearing on the other controversy in this match - the racism row.

A decision will be taken on whether Harbhajan Singh will be punished for allegedly calling Symonds a monkey.

The ICC has requested British lawyer Nigel Peters to attend the hearing and advise Match Referee Mike Procter and both the teams on procedural matters.

Sources close to the Indian team say the whole team is behind Harbhajan Singh, and will fight it out.

They will refute the allegations against Bhajji, and appeal, if a ban is imposed.
