    Umpires chosen for ashes series

    Aleen Dar, Rudi Koertzin, Billy Bowden and the somewhat dubious inclusion of the ominous Steve Bucknor.

    Personally i would say that all the umpires bar Buckno rare excellent. However Bucknor is a very dodgy decision to me after his performance on the England tour of South Africa..... Not best pleased at that little development myself. He is rather suspect imo and shows bias in opposition to england, not a wise decision at all by the ICC imo...we shall see what happens.

    The pressure is very much on Bucknor to perform, thi scould lead to him showing bias in favour of england for one ? hehe we can hope

    i dislike Dar, even since he gave Vaughan out caught behind at Antigua 04. Vaughan obviously missed the ball (by a long, long way). Ever since then ive been very quick to critise him. has anyone noticed he has a habit of of watching where the bowler lands and not the action

    On a side note i read on CricInfo that Taufel was umpiring the Sri Lanka and Windies Tests, i was just wondering who was the other guys. They said that Harper was joining Taufel for the ODI Series, so is it him???

    i think hair is the best to be honest, although really they are all pretty consistant if you ask me, maybe barring bucknor from that category

    Nice to see Bowden picked for the Big series, he tries to stay as neutral as possible and gives the crowd some extra entertainment.

    What's the point? We all make mistakes. And you're judging all future performances on one past mistake?

    Chaminda,

    Taufel is rated the best by many and you rate Harper the best.

    Guess that theory of yours that Sri Lanka always gets the worst umps has gone straight out the window. He he he.

    But they're Australians, social. They're always biased against Sri Lankans.

    Keep up, would you?

    What's the point?

    Those that dislike him will always point to some isolated incident that has disadvantaged the team that they support as evidence of his incompetence, whilst conveniently ignoring the fact that he has been almost universally regarded as one of the best umpires for many years.

    And those that like him will of course refer to those as isolated incidents. Whats reputation got to do with it? Everyone ages. No one can perform at a high level consistently for long. Some realise it and retire gracefully. And some dont.

    I think its a shame, but Bucknor is past his prime, his decisions whilst in SA were consitantly poor, and disadvantaged both teams, me and most of my firends agreed that the end of that tour would be a good time to bow out, but apparently this was not the case. Anyway, lets hope he has a better tour this time round and we get to see the umpire he used to be!
