Yuvraj Singh has been charged with dissent for standing his ground after his dismissal on the second day of the Melbourne Test. Match referee Mike Proctor has set the hearing for this evening, half an hour after stumps, and will decide the extent of punishment.
Yuvraj, still to get off the mark, drove at a ball from Stuart Clark and was given out caught behind. He stood his ground for a few moments, suggesting that he wasn't happy with Billy Bowden's decision. Replays didn't reveal much but the snickometer showed that there was indeed a fine edge.
Yuvraj, coming off a sensational hundred against Pakistan in Bangalore, was brought in at No.6 for this Test. It meant Rahul Dravid, who normally bats at No.3, was moved up the order with India playing only one specialist opener alongside him. The tactic was a talking point before the game and will continue to prompt more debate, now that both Yuvraj and Dravid struggled in the first innings.
