this is dead wrong. mainly:He hasn't said anything wrong tho
I didn't know the cameras got turned off."It's easy for people to comment after seeing TV replays," Dharmasena told Sri Lankan publication the Sunday Times. "I agree that there was a judgmental error when I see it on TV replays now. But we did not have the luxury of TV replays at the ground and I will never regret the decision I made. Besides, the ICC praised me for the decision I made at that time."
They aren't allowed to consult with the third umpire in that situation spikey. Simon Taufel said it too.this is dead wrong. mainly:

I became aware of the rule around the same time as everyone else, and my conclusion was every time overthrows go to the fence, you have go the 3rd umpire to get the understanding of how many runs should be awarded and who should be on strike, no different to dives on the fence or when a catch is skied and it's unclear if they crossed. simple stuff. Dharmasena (and the other ump) either didn't know the rule, or somehow thinks the 3rd ump is not an option to consult. both are wrong.
Idk I didn't write the rules. But thats what the professional paid umpires who do this job, and have done this job, have said. I'll take their word for it.**** gets referred to the 3rd umpire all the time. how come you check dives on the boundary when there's no dismissal involved?
Nah. I just think it's dumb to believe that forumers know more about professional umpiring than actual professional umpires. They make mistakes in judgement, but so do all humans. When it comes to the topic of protocol and regulations then obviously they know a lot more, and why would they lie about it? To what benefit?Obsequious to the middle.
but hang on, they can check the 3rd ump to see if it's a four, and they can check the 3rd to check who should be on strike following a dismissal, but they can't check the 3rd ump to see how many runs should be awarded and who should be on strike?Idk I didn't write the rules. But thats what the professional paid umpires who do this job, and have done this job, have said. I'll take their word for it.
