    The word embarrassed is ok.But I want little stronger expression than this.

    I tried to stick to one word which should fit in where the space is.
    Thanks for your trying.But I am not satisfied.Sorry!

    I'm sorry too.'humiliate' means 'to make someone feel stupid or ashamed'-Why did you say 'This is a third person's statement.'? I don't understand what you mean here.
    And again,are you looking for one word or for an expression? And do you want it to be strong but polite at the same time?

    Now you forget about the sentence "This is a third person's statement".ok
    See,problem between Ganguly and the selection board members.Isn't it?I am only a spectator.Am I right?I am just criticising about their fighting or the problem between them.That's all.That is why I said this is a third person's statement.That third person may be myself or may be you or may be someone else.
    Just leave it at that.ok

    You have understood very well. That is enough.Don't be confused. Now you can continue your searching for a word with strong expression.

    Thank you very much Queenbu.

    If 'proved them wrong' is too tame, what about 'rubbed their noses in it'. The expression comes from house-training a cat [training it not to defecate on the carpet]. When you 'rub someone's nose in it' the 'it' can be any behaviour that you disapprove of.
