my fav umpires in terms of decision making and umpiring demeanour are: asad rauf, aleem dar , simon taufel and rod tucker. some of the others are in the elite panel to fill-in the officiating list, including the entry of nigel llong. also in my opinion,indian umpire amiesh saheba was a good umpire until a few years back but he was never selected in the elite panel.

venkat was a very good umpire indeed, another indian umpire was saheba who was good and could've made it to the elite list, but was never considered
