What does Steve Bucknor have against India ?

In Brisbane, season 2003-2004, Sachin Tendulkar is given out by Steve Bucknor when he was clearly not-out. The same series, Steve Waugh’s last test.. Justin Langer is adjudged not-out twice to Ajit Agarkar when he was plumb both times, Damien Martyn is again given not-out to Murali Kartik. The umpire in all these wrong decisions was Mr. Bucknor. These decisions ultimately affected the outcome of that test, denying India a series win against Australia in Australia.

And now again today, when Sachin was on a song, playing more fluently then he has done in months, when the 35th century seemed imminent, Steve Bucknor comes up with a shocking decision giving Sachin out, when the gap between the bat and ball was visible even to a blind spectator sitting in the last seat in the last row.

Mr. Bucknor, I would request you to make this 100th test of yours the last test you ever officiate in.
