7. there must be minimum 7 days gap in between any two consecutive test matches & 2 days gap in 1 dayer

Ball dampering & Throwing

it is a fashion for white umpires to point the subcontinent players for ball dampering & throwing.

As if their players doing nothing. This is the time to shut all the nonsense. Umpires must be diplomatic and show must go on.

I vote for pakistan
by kishore on Aug 22, 2006 07:41 PM

I vote for Pakistan since there was no evidence to say Pakistan is culprit on this issue. But i will accept with the fact that the pride of cricket has been killed but the pride of Pakistan also killed. Any captain will not accept the umpire's decision that has been taken in this issue. ICC has to resolve this issue as soon as possible to save the pride of cricket but the decision should not be against Pakistan or Pakistani captain.

By the way i am not a pakistani

Darrel Hair

Umpair Darrel Hair is an arrogant person and looks like he dislikes teams from sub continant.

Cricket amn gives over importance to umpires.They have to understand that cricket is not being played for umpires sake.They are important part of the game and are there to see that game goes on as per cricket law.But every body feels that Cricket has no answer even if umpires take wrong decisions against the intrest of game willfully.Perticularly well known White umpires feel that they can go as per their wish and there is no control over them9Infact good support they have).

In this incidence India has to take lead and support Pakisthan morally.Pakisthan should quit from One day series or forefiet one day series and go back.If ICC penalises them, India,Pakisthan and Srilanka can have a small triangular series and generate funds(with an appeal to cricket fans)and pay the penalty to ICC as a blow on thier face.
