He was the first man to not call for an action replay of a Run Out which subsequently proved to be out - in a Test involving the West Indies who's players who were not on the field all appeared on the balcony and signalled "Out".
He refuses to accept that Murali's action is legal and is largely responsible for the fact that the Australian public might not see the world's greatest ever spinner in their country.
During an England tour of the West Indies he suddenly fired out Jimmy Adams and Curtley Ambrose when the left handed West Indian batsman were constantly kicking the ball away outside their off-stump. He gave those two out several feet outside the line and both had taken a huge stride, it's true they weren't playing a stroke, but both sides had been doing the same all series and there was no way he could be sure the ball was going to hit the stumps. The commentators said he just got fed up with the constant padding up and decided to give them out.
In this match he made the Inzy run out error by wrongly referring it and the first warning to the batsman for running on the wicket was nonsense.
I how he rates among the players?
