“It’s about as common as Indians eating beef burgers."
Australian umpire, Daryl Harper, takes a huge swipe at Indian cricketers— simultaneously defending his track record, following the criticism directed at him by the Indian captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In a series of caustic remarks—interpreted by some as having racist overtones— that included “I should never have applied the laws of cricket to Indian players.", the Australian let fly letting Indians know how he felt about their accusations. Harper says that the ICC proved that 94% of his decisions were right and that his mistakes were as rare as Indians eating beef.
What he really meant:
“That’s how strongly I feel. So there!”
What he definitely didn’t:
“I’m a vegetarian.”
“McDonald’s have offered me a job—in India.”
