    I hate the umpires(haaaaaaaaaaaaaa)

    I feel like punching myself in the face right now because of the bloody umpire,

    Today I was batting 1 down the ball hit my tigh pad and it was going down the leg I was trying to hit it in the gap and take a single I missed and the umpire gave me out.

    I really feel disappointed because I would have made alot of runs,It was my first bowl up and he gave me out

    Please tell me what to do right now because I have butter flies in my stomach when ever I dont do well I feel like ****.
    Bob is very insane stay away from him

    FAVOURITE UNDER 19 CRICKETER JP McNamara AKA ORTHODOX

    u must b reallly short

    i once got given out like that...

    going down leg side, i tried to flick it through square leg, it clipped my thigh guard, and went through to the keeper. The bowler went up in a half hearted appeal, and i was given out.

    So i asked the umpire how i was out, lbw, or caught behind, and he said lbw.

    after the match, whilst talkin to the opposition, the bowler said the "appeal" if u can call it that, was for caught behind

    I guess it comes part and parcel with cricket, and the only thing you can do is just accept it.....


    or swear at the crowd and everyone else like katich..mind u that was one of the worst decisions ever. it just never looked out

    It happens.

    Get over it.

    Have you ever got a lucky decision from an umpire when you were bowling?

    The worst one is. I was given out caught behind, when i missed the ball by a foot and no-one appealed. The umpire said "Your out. Next guys appeal."

    But hey it happens.

    Yes I have gotten a decision that wasnt correct from an umpire when I was bowling,but at least it was close enough I mean the ball hit me in the tigh pad and to make the decision even worse I am 6 feet tall so imagine how high the ball would have been over the wickets.

    Benefit of the doubt should go to the batsman,

    The ball hit my tigh pad
    the ball was going over the stumps
    The ball was going down the leg
    It was clearly out side the leg

    and you tell me the umpire didnt have a doubt???????

    I'm also trying to figure out how punching himself in the face is going to help Fardin.

    Unless he then posts a picture of his black eye, thus providing us with some comic relief.

    Thus leading to a suspension, meaning you miss out on your highlight of the week.

    Great thinking, Fardin...

    Have you learnt nothing from all the press that goes on about dissent towards umpires? You do that, and you won't be playing for a good 3 or 4 weeks - and we've already had threads where we've seen how missing one game is so painful for you.

    Wonder how much you wanted Ponting to get fined?

    I'm sure everyone will talk about your class and maturity when you do what you describe. People who do that get "black-listed" when it comes to making the representative sides that you so desperately wish to make.
