Former England all-rounder Tim Bresnon has said that he and Australian umpire Rod Tucker received death threats after dismissing Sachin Tendulkar for 91 during the 2011 four-match Test series between India and England.

\'I stopped Tendulkar\'s 100th Ton, Received Death threats: Tim Bresnon

Tendulkar had 99 international centuries and was heading towards his record 100th ton during the fourth Test at the Oval. But when he was on 91, a delivery from Bresnan clipped Tendulkar on the pads. Despite the ball seeming to be missing the leg stump, Tucker raised his fingers. And since the BCCI was not in favour of the Decision Review System (DTS) then, India did not have the option to refer the decision.

"He was on 99 international hundreds and there were no referrals in that series because the BCCI didn’t like it,” said Bresnan while speaking on the Yorkshire Cricket: Covers Off podcast.

“It was at The Oval in the last Test of the series. This ball, it was probably missing leg anyway, and umpire (Tucker), Aussie lad, shot him out. He was on 80-odd as well (91), definitely going to get it (his century). We win the series and go to number one in the world.”

Following the match, Bresnan and Tucker were at the receiving end of people's wrath to an extent that the latter eventually sought police protection.

“We both got death threats, me and this umpire, we got death threats for ages after,” Bresnan went on. “I got them on Twitter and he (Tucker) had people writing to him to his home address and stuff, getting proper death threats going, ‘How dare you give him out? It was missing leg.’ I caught up with him a few months later and he was like, ‘Mate, I’ve had to get a security guard and stuff.’ He had police protection around his gaff in Australia.”
