yeah u got it rite,i wanna know why r umpires still being implemented in international cricket?India couldnt win the test series against england due to 'kachra' and third class umpiring.Sachin was prey at the hands of the umpires 6-7 times on the tour.LBW decisions are never gud.wides , noballs and other decisions can change the course of the match.i think we shoud have a big screen where decisions r shown.LBW shud be judged with the help of the mat and the hawk eye.wides ,no balls ,nicks and snicks shoud be judged on the screen.if not wides and no ball,LBW's ,Snicks nad nicks shud be consulted from TV umpire.even Jayasuriya wasnt out in today's match.he was another innocent hunt by the men in red.

Why does the Indian team field useless players? Get Honda to make us 11 cricket playing robots and blackmail ICC into changing the rules of the game for us (we have LOTS of dough). Thats all. We will win all the matches even with bad umpires.

the game needs human umpires to keep the players in check. they need one guy in the middle who has the authority to keep them in control.personally i hate the technology in use in the game. umpires should have had the last word.

Yes. Technology in cricket is bad. If we don't see the hawk-eye and snick-o-meter in action, we won't have heartburn. Ignorance is bliss, and I like it that way as far as cricket is concerned.

:Dthose have created a lot more controversies nowadays. earlier it was fine... umpire's decision was final. you had to accept it. period.

i got an example when Inzamam tried to do hatapai with the ball and was given out obstructing the field by an UMPIRE.
umpires are somewhat useful but sometimes annoying.
