Here is what BBC Sport Cricket had to Say about BD-ENG Match

"Cook himself departed in the 19th over when he got a rotten lbw decision off local umpire Nadir Shah. "

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/cricket/england/8538370.stm

They could have said this in a decent manner a like "Questionable lbw decision off local umpire Nadir Shah"

So my question is what about us- If we are Victim of bad call? who Justifies that?

Theyre just incredibly biased and obnoxious, the very essence of English cricket..

It was indeed a very bad call, not questionable. But it happens in cricket, its not like it affected the outcome.

Nadir Shah was poor. Naeem should have gotten Cook much early but Nadir Shah turned down a genuine LBW appeal. That was a wrong decision and then he gave Cook out which was clearly going down leg. He should have upheld the first appeal when Cook was on 32. In that case he would have made one correct decision instead of 2 wrong decisions.

Never mind the choice of words. I'm pleased at least they mentioned this:

Not that England could really complain about the umpiring in general, as Tucker, having already denied Bangladesh once, later ruled out a perfectly valid catch to Rahim off Shakib with Morgan on 20.

That's why I want to eliminate all the umpires from cricket.
First they ruin us then they destroy us and finally they bring bad names.
Even the hawkeye can give LBW decisions.
Maybe umpires should just stand in the middle and count balls.

This is the worst umpiring day in ODI history. In my count there were six wrong decisions. However, the result would be the same with or without the bad calls. I think we shaould play with no umpire under honor system since we cannot afford UDRS.

Just one bad decision by our Dhanmondian...On the other hand That Aussie gave two bad decisions. Keiwesser's LBW and Morgan's caught behind.

One eyed BBC.

Or solve disputes. We need some sort of official authority on the field just for the heck of it, but as far as decision-making is concerned, I agree with you - I don't think there's any point of having umpires make calls that a machine can do better.

Had the technology been there, I'd much rather live my life in a capsule with my virtual reality glasses on, my mind controlling the body of the boyfriend of a beautiful alien babe on a planet light years away.

I have to say, that in 8 years of following sports news in BBC, I am yet to see the word "rotten" used to describe a decision in a sports article. In blogs, yes. But even the worst cases of injustice the English football team faced never brought about anything more than "highly controversial" or "blatantly wrong".

Tucker is a new umpire. Only had 12 ODI match experience.

Just so people know, 'rotten' isn't that bad a word in the context. You know how people say 'oh that was rotten luck', I'm sure it was intended like that.

In this Context

Bad, Unlucky, Wrong < Rotten

Of course not....:)
But rotten is almost never used as an adjective in sports news reports, and that too on BBC sports reports.

English media are hypocrites. They raised a crusade against Koertzen for giving a wrong call and they will act as if this match was completely clean.
