i am sick and tired of the ICC and their BS double standards.

rubel gets called for a last ball wide against broad, which albeit high, the same relative bouncers are always called as dots against our batsmen in SIMILAR match situations at similar times. and lets not forget broad is 6-5, btw.

just rewind back to our famous cardiff win, when mcgrath bowled several bouncers to rafique at the very end of the match.

what should have been a dot ball to end the over, cost us an extra 3 runs...and given the match situation could be very crucial between a win and a loss.

when will teh BCB raise its voice about bad umpiring (collingwood decision was similarily effed up)...the morgan call in dhaka or ctg...that tamim dismissal first ODI and now this?

I think umpiring the world over has gone to an utterly incompetent level...these umpires sometimes don't even know the rules. And they are international umpires...thank goodness we still won.yay!!

Did u think we were losing this match just before opening this thread? :)
Anyway, these umpiring or rubbish codes or whatever- we have to answer with wins after all - AND we have done this today. Shukria Allah Alhamdulillah.

The sad fact is that ICC chooses our matches to try out new umpires and sometimes, new local umpires, who would of course judge against us in a pinch. It's a vicious cycle.
