    Excellent as the both of them had a world cup final to remember. Trust they would do matches together in New Zealand in the post Covid era

    Is he fit to be an umpire Friday, 11 December 2020 07:43 AM

    This umpire did not know the rules that allowed England to beat New Zealand in the last World Cup. But nobody talks about it, simply because the ignorance benefited England.

    Very good move. As umpiring decisions has set a bad example and deteriorated the game. It is a bad message to the international community watching the LPL. We should see standards and remove those umpires in releated offences from the panel. Encourage past cricketers to take up umpiring as an example. SLC and spirts ministry take note.
