Umpire Ian Howell was involved in a controversial incident during the Australia Tour of Bangladesh in 2006. On 16 April 2006, Bangladesh was struggling at 41/4 in 14th over in the first innings of the second Test Match in Chittagong Divisional Stadium. At this stage, Aftab Ahmed and Rajin Saleh was doing the reconstruction job and took Bangladesh to 102 in 32nd over with losing any further wicket. At this point, the Australia Captain Ricky Ponting, Umpire Ian Howell and Third Umpire Mahbubur Rahman jointly created the following controversial situation:


From cricinfo.com Match Bulletin
However, the stand ended in controversial circumstances. Warne floated one up that drifted in and dipped, taking the inside edge before bounding off Ahmed's boots to Gilchrist. The unsure field umpires, Ian Howell and Aleem Dar, referred it Mahbubur Rahman, the third umpire, and after countless replays it seemed the decision was made in the batsman's favour when Ricky Ponting entered the fray. An animated chat with Howell, the umpire at the bowler's end, resulted, quite surprisingly, in a review of the decision as the umpires went into further conversation with Rahman. This time the verdict came in favour of the visitors, and Aftab trudged back for 18.

Don't worry, Dravid, Jayawardene is no Ponting. These type of situation is out of question.

During the same Test Match, Brett Lee ordered spineless Aleem Dar to stand 15-20 feet behind the normal umpire's mark. Aleem complied for a few no-ball deliveries until he realized what Lee was doing. Aleem told Lee he could not stand that far away and monitor Lee's illegal deliveries. Ponting and Lee jumped on Aleem, another altercation on the field.

Later, Lee was declined a few LBW shouts from Aleem. So, what does Lee do? He throws a ball, aimed intentionally and directly at Aleem. The ball hit Aleem hard. Exactly on the spot where Aleem was trying to grow a spine. He was in considerable amount of pain. He's gonna need Tiger Balm on that spot every full moon.

Intimidating the match officials is one of many Aussie traditions. They are the best at it. Go Punters.

I don't know about Indian players, but I've got high respect for Sri Lankan players. Jayawardene is a gentleman, much more than the 1950's meaning of what gentleman was. However, I'm happy that dada isn't the captain for the Indian team. I wouldn't doubt his capabilities to get nastier than Ponting. Dravid seems more gentle, although I can't completely trust any Indian player.

Did you guys see this piece of news on Umpires?

They no longer have the authority to terminate a match. The match referee has the power now.
