    Brisbane Aleem Dar/Kumar Dharmasena............ TV: Marias Erasmus
    Adelaide Marias Erasmus/Kumar Dharmasena... . TV: Tony Hill
    Perth Marias Erasmus/Billy Bowden............... TV: Tony Hill
    Melbourne Aleem Dar/Kumar Dharmasena............. TV: Billy Bowden

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    were the any other possibilities.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Wouldn't have minded the Indian guy who did the Bangladesh v NZ game last month. He was better than most I have seen lately but as he only has one game I doubt he was considered at all.

    Interesting that the most important test series in cricket can't even be allocated Elite Panel umpires for all 5 matches.

    Tony Hill being kept to TV duties is surely a sign that he'll be dumped when their contracts are up next... he is older than Koertzen when he retired and nearly as old as Bucknor when he retired.

    Dharmasena, Bowden and Hill is a perfect umpiring storm of ineptitude.

    And surely saying Dharmasena's blind isn't ableist any more than saying his eyes are painted on or he's umpiring in Braille?

    Bowden is terrible but I'm hoping to see an excellent series for DRS, so it shouldn't matter.

    Sounds as though I wasn't watching his end closely enough, or I was put off by Dar having the worst series I've seen from him in the last Ashes, but Dharmasena didn't seem terrible. Well I wouldn't out him as low as the other two.
