    Umpiring Errors

    Inspired by this thread:

    The last Ashes without referrals – a running tally of umpiring errors

    Seeing as there's no UDRS in this series, might be worth discussing a few of the more obvious errors here and meaninglessly speculating as to their effect.

    To paraphrase pasag, let's hope this thread has 0 replies by the end of the series.

    Interesting how the UDRS seems to have shifted standards so quickly.

    You could probably count the number of obvious mistakes on two hands. In five Tests, that makes a pretty damn good series of Umpiring.
    10 obvious mistakes in 5 Tests is pretty unacceptable now. And if 1 mistake is made with UDRS in a series then it's blue murder.

    Or maybe that's just Richard being a bit odd, I dunno.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Yeah, but on the flipside when a shocker goes against you and you've used your reviews, everyone sees it as almost justice.

    Hence why no-one ever bangs on about how we were robbed of a surefire 4-1 victory in the last Ashes, because rest assured we would have won at Brisbane had Hussey been given lbw when Jimmy trapped him front and middle. But as I say, no-one's bitter about that. At all

    I think it's unreasonable to expect umpires to get every single decision right. I'd take five wrong decisions over the entire test series TBH. Any idea about who we're getting? If it's Aleem Dar and Simon Taufel, we'll be fine.

    I for one, as a neutral, hope that this thread reaches a 100 pages by the series completion

    I can just imagine the poo flinging arguments when some bad decisions are given

    I think all neutrals would be hoping for that, especially with these 2 teams

    Tbf it'll be worse this summer when India plays us. Nevertheless, this series will still be very funny when you have guys like GIMH swaggering around

    Two of Richard's hands add up to 12. That not withstanding there'll be a cart load of errors. Swann might well find his number of LBW's bites the dust.

    Bumble and Warne just suggesting that if India don't want to use DRS in the coming series, that's fine, but England should still be allowed to use it. Seems fair to me.

    Surely if the ICC's - i.e. "neutral" - position is for the UDRS, surely the rule ought to be to use it unless both boards object, rather than to only use it if both boards agree.

    Think of it as one vote to each board and a third deciding vote to the ICC.

    I agree Blaze, it is unreasonable to expect them to get them all correct.

    I just wish the powers that be would devise a system that helped correct the errors!

    Typical Lloyd and Warne nonsense. By saying they don't want it used they obviously mean only with it being the same for both teams otherwise they wouldn't make that decision. No team is ever under any obligation to use it.

    Bumble and Warne obviously read my posts, I made exactly the same suggestion a week ago.
