Umpiring Fiasco
by RAJENDER KUMAR on Aug 23, 2006 10:20 AM

Reporter is absolutely right. However, Pakistan should not have abstained after tea break. They could have protested some other way around.

The best option now is that let match be with England. For future, Hair should only umpire matches between Australia, England and New Zealandas he seem to have a kind of distaste for brown and black people.

ICC must also find a way so that umpires giving wrong decisions are thrown out of its panel.

Umpire Hair
by Rajender Singh Rawat on Aug 23, 2006 09:30 AM

Iam strongly with Pakistan team. The way they were treated by the umpires espically Mr. hair was not acceptable and wrong AND the way Inzy & co protested was correct in a way to open the eys of ICC management. They are biased against sub-contenent players. All indians and BCCI should support Pakistan.

Umpires must be diplomatic

When the Supreme court judges are giving diplomatic
judgement, what is wrong if umpires are diplomatic
in giving outs and notouts.The show must go on otherwise
money will not be there.

Umpiring decisions are always part of cricket but the stand taken by the Pakistani team can never be a part of cricket. It is debatable weather the ball was tampered or not but the Pakistans stand is never acceptable. It was against cricket and against the sport ship.

Reporter is spot on

If officials and captains both remain stubborn, all issues will end in similar situations with spectators, who might have travelled long distances to view some action being robbed of it entirely.
Players and offcials must ensure that progress of game is of prime importance.
