Sachin Tendulkar’s wicket had threatened to kill this bowler, revealed himself
Due to Corona epidemic, cricket has been braced for the last two and a half months. During this time, cricketers from all over the world are remembering the old times by interacting with their fans through social media. In such a situation, many cricketers have made some interesting revelations. Now the name of former England fast bowler Tim Bresnan has also been added to this list.
I and Umpire Rod Tucker were threatened with death – Tim Bresnan
Tim Bresnan revealed on the Yorkshire Cricket Covers of Podcast that he was threatened with death by umpire Rod Tucker after Sachin Tendulkar was lbw out in a 2011 Test match. For your information, let us know that in this Test, Sachin could have completed 100 centuries in international cricket, but on a personal score of 91 runs, Tim Bresnan dismissed him LBW. However, it was a very close decision, as it was clearly seen in the TV replays that the ball came out touching the top of the leg stump.
Tim Bresnan said, “There was no review in that Test series, because the Board of Control for Cricket in India was against it then.” This was the last match of the Test series, which was being played at the Oval Ground. Sachin had 99 centuries in international cricket at that time. The ball that Sachin was out of was going outside the leg stump, but umpire Tucker gave it to him. He was probably batting for 80 or 90 runs at that time. Surely he would have scored a century in that match. After Sachin’s dismissal, we also won the series and became number one in the Test.
Tucker had to take police protection – Tim Bresnan
Bresnan, who played 23 Tests, 85 ODIs and 34 T20 Internationals for England, said that after this he and Umpire Rod Tucker were threatened with death.
He said, “After this, both of us started receiving threats to kill us.” This went on for a long time. People were sending threatening letters to umpire Tucker’s house and were questioning him how he gave Sachin out. When I met him after a few months, he told me that he had to call for the security guard. Even he had to take police protection in Australia.
