ICC Champions Trophy 2006

Darrell Hair not to officiate in ICC Champions Trophy

Controversial Australian umpire Darrell Hair will not officiate in the Champions Trophy in India next month, the International Cricket Council announced on Thursday.
After weeks of speculation on whether Hair would be included in the umpires' panel for Champions Trophy in the wake of the Oval Test fiasco, ICC said Hair had been left out due to "safety and security concerns". Tournament hosts India had demanded on Tuesday that the ICC omit Hair as his presence might provoke spectators.
The ICC announcement came after a disciplinary hearing found Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul Haq "not guilty" of ball tampering, a charge laid by Hair during the Oval Test. An indignant Hair said he wished to continue on with umpiring seconds after an ICC spokesman revealed that he had been withdrawn from the Champions Trophy.

Australia and India want final birth

Australia and India face-off in a crunch DLF Cup one-day match today, conscious that whoever loses will take the failure into the Champions Trophy next month.
Aside from the psychological boost a win would give, plenty more is at stake for world No.1 Australia. The last time they missed the final of a triangular tournament was the VB Series in 2001-02, which led to Steve Waugh being replaced as one-day captain by Ricky Ponting. The Aussies currently lie second in the DLF Cup table with seven points, one in front of India, a ledger that means a tie or wash-out in Friday's "semi-final" would be enough for them to make the final against the West Indies on Sunday. Australia will field a strong line up after experimenting in this tournament.
Glenn McGrath will spearhead a dangerous bowling attack with Brett Lee, while Matthew Hayden and Simon Katich should open the innings. With Ponting, Damien Martyn, Michael Hussey and Andrew Symonds in the side India's bowlers will have their work cut out. But if Indian captain Rahul Dravid has been encouraged by anything in Malaysia it has been his bowling attack, with Munaf Patel, Ajit Agarkar and spinner Harbhajan Singh coming into their own. Their batting has been less of a hit, with Sachin Tendulkar the only player to show consistent form. Australia Team: R Ponting, M Hayden, S Katich, D Martyn, A Symonds, M Hussey, B Haddin, B Hogg, B Lee, S Clark, G McGrath.
India Team (from): R Dravid, S Tendulkar, V Sehwag, Y Singh, S Raina, M Dhoni, A Agarkar, H Singh, M Patel, S Sreesanth, RP Singh, M Kaif, D Mongia, I Pathan, R Powar.

West Indies made steady progress at the start of their innings, but soon were all out for 146 in 41 overs. Lara remained not out at 40. Harbhajan Singh was awarded the Man-of-the-Match award for his crucial 37 and 3 for 35. India must win on Friday, while Australia can get through with a tie or a wash-out.

Windies upbeat for India re-match today

And having already qualified for next Sunday's final has given them a major lift ahead of the Champions Trophy in India, where they will have to pre-qualify despite being the defending champions.
Chappell, meanwhile, said he was disappointed about the fact that Indians could not play a full game so far in the series which was important to fathom the level of their preparations.
India replaced Irfan Pathan with S Sreesanth in the only change to the team that played Australia in the previous match. The West Indies made two changes to the team that defeated Australia on Monday, playing fast bowler Corey Collymore and middle order batsman Runako Morton in place of Jerome Taylor and Ian Bradshaw. India : R Dravid (Captain), SR Tendulkar, V Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, SK Raina, M S Dhoni (Wicket Keeper), A B Agarkar, Harbhajan Singh, M M Patel, S Sreesanth, R P Singh.
West Indies : CH Gayle, S Chanderpaul, RR Sarwan, BC Lara (Captain) RS Morton, WW Hinds, D J Bravo, M N Samuels, DR Smith, CS Baugh (Wicket Keeper), CD Collymore. Australia won the opening match over West Indies last Tuesday by 77 runs; West Indies beat India last Thursday by 29 runs under the Duckworth-Lewis Method; and the third match between Australia and India ended in a no-result because of rain.

Australia wary of Chappell factor

Former Australia captain Greg Chappell faces his countrymen for the first time on Saturday with India desperate for a win in the Kuala Lumpur tri-series.
