Labels do matter

One problem with getting tagged as "excitable subcontinental" is that if you appeal the way Brett Lee did yesterday after hitting Tendulkar high on the pads, its more likely you won't get the finger going your way. That appeal and the one before it are worth watching - you can sense Rauf crumbling. And today Rauf crumbled again, and once again, he got the height wrong when giving Dhoni out LBW - in face of a sustained appeal from Clark and Co. Its far, far better, to get the tag of "hard but fair". Its pays off better in the long run.
