M S Dhoni fight with Third Umpire Wrong Decision

It had been a comedy of errors which Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni didn't find funny whatsoever.

Within the 29th over from the tri-series ODI against Australia, India become a huge hit for any stumping against Mike Hussey off Suresh Raina's bowling that was known to 3rd umpire Bruce Oxenford.

What must have been an easy situation from the official giving either of these two rulings - out or otherwise out-- converted into a comical scene.

Hussey, whose feet appeared just behind the road within the replays, was declared out in the beginning by Oxenford but because the left-hander made his method to the pavillion on-area umpire Billy Bowden rushed to create him back.

Because it happened, the 3rd umpire had apparently pressed the incorrect button but quickly made amends by asking the on-area authorities to call the batsman back.

Hussey chuckled his long ago towards the crease but Dhoni wasn't too amused and was seen getting an animated talk to Bowden concerning the confusion as Australia were hazardously placed at 119 for 3 at that point
