    Umpires are a forgotten lot. So I voted Dickie Bird and Venkat. Venkat over Shepherd because Venkat was a very good player who went on to become a pretty good umpire. Kinda rare these days with almost all former players NOT taking up umpiring as an option. Got a gut feeling that it is the cause of a widening rift between players and officials.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    There are still a lot of ex players from England that umpire or have umpired. Just off the top of my head, Mallender, Willey, Bumble Lloyd, Peter Hartley and Im sure there are many more.

    Dickie and Shep were ex-players as well, though they certainly were not upto the standard of Venkat.

    Agreed on both counts

    yeah but lots of them, like Willey, aren't willing to be ont he international panel, you know, due to all the travel and stuff.
