India, Australia, cricket captains told to make peace

The head of Cricket Australia has sought to ease tensions between the Australian and Indian teams, calling on the captains of both sides to enter peace talks.

There is renewed doubt over the future of the remainder of the test series with the Indian side told to stay in Sydney and await further instruction, despite being scheduled to travel to Australia's capital, Canberra, for a tour match.

The Indians are angry about the umpiring in the second test and their captain has accused Australia of not playing in the spirit of the game.

Cricket Australia's Chief Executive James Sutherland says to some extent, Kumble's comments are understandable.

"It was a classic test match; it went right down to the wire," he said.

"Anil Kumble had a fantastic test match as a captain and as a player and no doubt he was disappointed in the end."
