Bangladesh is doomed. BCB needs to file with ICC (written) now, just like Pakistan did with Hair.

this is stupid... they really have no umpires out there? they have recall these disabled umpires?

Hair is also coming back, Bucknor staying back, virtually ICC is not ready to take action against umpires for poor performance. I think they have a onesided contract with the umpires, favoring umpires. Hair wanted huge money for settlement with ICC and they were not ready to give it.

let we have Bucknor; India have Asoka

Asoka de Silva and Steve Davies promoted to Elite Panel (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/ci-icc/content/current/story/345002.html)

This is another poor decision by ICC; But there is a question. Did not Srilankan board nominate Asoka for elite panel? If Asoka failed the exam, then why Srilankan board nominate him? ICC should ask this question to SL board. But if ICC took this decision without any SL feedback then BCB should ask SL for the exam result and submit this to ICC for his dismissal. ICC claim that elite umpires made only 8% error last year. But I think Bucknor, the WI guy and Rudy made almost 99% of those error. With the promotion of Asoka, retainment of Bucknor, reinstation of Hair ICC is showing nepotism, encouraging incompetence and lack of accountability. From Imperial Cricket Council , ICC became Incompetent Cricket Council

Nightmare. You know he will see his game action against us, a weak team, to smooth himself back in. I have no words to describe this unethical person. I will be banned instantly for my language..
