Nottingham:

Umpire Simon Taufel has said that he was upset at having given a wrong decision to Sachin Tendulkar on day three of the second Test at Trent Bridge.

"I always look at the big screen after giving a decision. And the minute I saw the replay of Sachin's dismissal, I knew I got it wrong," Taufel is reported to have told the Sky Sports commentators David Lloyd and David Gower.

"The big disappointment is that people come to watch the top players and I gave him out wrongly. That upset me," said Taufel.

The Aussie, who has for three times in a row being adjudged the best ICC umpire, however, backed his decision about Sourav Ganguly.

"However, I would have given Ganguly out every time," said Taufel.

Lloyd explained that even VVS Laxman - who was at the non-striker's end when Ganguly was batting - agreed that there was some sound as the ball passed Ganguly's bat.
