    Don't think Jason would like that - given he thinks Kiwi umps are biased in Australia's favour!

    haha, good choice IMO!

    M Hopgood: Followed up his debut century with a half century. Most likely the most impressive begin to a List A career by a Colts batsman in their history. In fantastic form at the moment, and will look to transfer that form into the first class arena. 8/10

    Porbably the obvious choices. Though not to have the best umpire in the world officiating in the biggest match is dissapointing.

    And if he gave a crucial decision in Australia's favour at a crucial time?

    IMO taking away any remote suspicion of bias, especially in such an important game, is the only way to go.

    Everyone who is serious about the matter realises that independent Umpires are not a result of bias, but a result of the suspicion of bias. However good an Umpire is, that will never, ever go away. The only way to stop it is to remove all Umpires from matches involving their own team.

    Aleem Dar will partner Bucknor. I can't disagree with the choice, he's had a solid WC. Rudy Koertzen is 3rd umpire .

    I am very disappointed that Taufel isnt standing in the finals with Dar.

    Dar concerns me more than Bucknor, from an Aussie point of view - just don't think our blokes have a good rapport with him.

    Matt79 wasn't being serious... I'm evidently not the only one to have my sarcasm missed.

    It's the right time to go.
