    That's great because now no one will really see the thread and hence the thread might as well be dead !!

    I'm actually torn. Part of me thinks it probably would've been more politic of the ICC to omit Hair on this occasion (no reasons need to be given, no blame on either side), but equally there's no way any country can dictate which umpires they wish to stand in any game.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    And how do you know he doesn't have proof?

    The hearings not been held yet...

    Why is there no thread asking if Doctrove should stand?

    A good point, but the ICC have seemingly made this solely about Hair as much as anybody.

    Before this thread got moved it was 2-1 against Hair standing at Champions Trophy. But since it moved here and the selective audience who come to this Sub forum , Hair is now level pegging with regard to his appointment at Champions Trophy.

    This result is unreliable and grossly out of character with the view on the CW Main forum and cannot be accepted as a genuine vote based on the majority opinions on CW .

    TBF you seem to be doing exactly what Pakistan were guilty of: moaning about the arbiters of the competition when the result isn't going your way.....

    I agree. It should be 2:1 in favour of Hair standing.

    It was moved to the proper place for the thread - you can't have any complaints about that.

    Any poll on here is extremely unreliable to be honest.

    Exactly, but people are only seeing Hair. There were two umpires out there remember.

    Until the hearing is held and completed then Hair can continue to umpire, if Pakistan or any other team has a problem then they can continue to take it too the ICC and have a whinge.

    Billy Doctrove isn't white. That is why he isn't a convenient scapegoat.

    Dunno about that - the Indians haven't been backward in their criticism of Bucknor in the past.

    Anyhow, it looks like Hair definitely isn't standing in the Champions Trophy now - safety concerns are being cited. *nudge nudge wink wink*
