    Wow. Left-field or what? Thought it might be a piss-take when I saw the thread title.

    Suffice to say I don't think he'll be standing in any games where Sri Lanka or Pakistan play any time soon, but England-NZ & England-SA might well benefit from his services. Grandstanding prick he may be, but gets more decisions right than most umps.

    Grandstanding prick he is, and his handling of ovalgate should have seen him punished (and Pakistan punished too), but he does get most decisions right. In the end, I don't mind this for that reason.

    I just don't want him umpiring Pakistan and Sri Lankan games.

    Haha yea. Looking forward to more Darrel Hair threads, and more grandstanding from all sides the next time he gives a high LBW or heaven forbid, sees someone from the subcontinent tampering a ball and punishes them.

    Haha, yeah. I'd love it if someone Asian was caught blatantly ball-tampering during a Hair match, but no-one believed old Darrell. 'The Ump who cried "ball-tampering!"'.

    Thought it was when I saw the thread-starter, personally. Mitchell in CC is hardly a common occurance.

    If I$C$C are seriously considering putting him in Pakistan or Sri Lanka games, they're insane, for so many reasons. However, in games involving the others (not like there's any shortage of them TBH, there's England-South Africa, England-New Zealand, England-West Indies, England-India, South Africa-New Zealand, South Africa-West Indies, South Africa-India, West Indies-New Zealand, New Zealand-India and West Indies-India - that's 10 series), as ss says, there's no reason to believe he won't do a far better job than Daryl Harper, Mark Benson, Ian Howell and many besides.

    Also, having always felt Hair got a little (not a massive - but a little) of a raw deal following Ovalgate, there's an element of justice for my money. His performance in the match was inconsidered, hot-headed, inconsiderate, and was the biggest piece of the puzzle that made for one of the worst incidents in cricket history. Did such a thing deserve sacking from I$C$C? Not for my money. The sensible thing would've been to calmly come out with "Darrell will not be standing in any more games involving Pakistan and Sri Lanka, but retains our confidence" or similar. Of course, I$C$C don't terribly often (not never, but not terribly often) come-out with sensible rulings. Better late than never I suppose, if this is indeed what's to happen. And surely even I$C$C (whoever's responsible) won't be stupid enough to ink him in for Pakistan or Sri Lanka games again.

    I just wish he'd retired following WC2007 (as he had at one point planned to) TBH. Then none of this mess would've happened.

    Except for Pakistan vs SLanka, in which case both will be equally (mis)treated.
