Should "home" umpires be re-introduced into test cricket?
Tony Grieg, Mark Taylor and Ian Smith have been arguing this morning during the coverage of the Aus v NZ test that home umpires should make a return to test cricket, and they're saying that the experiment of having "neutral" umpires has failed.
I think it's been prompted by the idea that Aleem Dar (who has rejected some close LBW calls) doesn't understand Australian pitches, and thinks the ball is going over the top (on an LBW call) when it isn't.
I'm inclined to disagree. Firstly, because I don't think that those arguing it would accept this rationale for subcontinental umpires umpiring in the subcontinent (and I disagree with one rule for some, and another for everybody else), and secondly, because the current arrangement is largely in place to offset "allegations" of national bias, as much as attempt to deal with the bias itself.
What are people's opinions on this?
