Thumbs up Asoka demoted ---- Justice served !

This guy cost so many games in our short cricekt history.

================================================== ========

Kumar Dharmasena and Richard Kettleborough have been promoted to the Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, replacing Daryl Harper and Asoka de Silva. Dharmasena and Kettleborough, who had been serving on the International Panel of ICC Umpires, were chosen by the ICC Umpires Selection Panel as part of their annual review and selection process.
Harper and de Silva, both of whom have controversial umpiring histories and, it would seem, particular troubles with the Decision Review System, have come in for some criticism over their decisions in recent times, in the light of which their demotions are hardly surprising.
Harper was one of the umpires to officiate on England's trip to the Caribbean during the trialling stages of the DRS in early 2009 and soon ran into strife. His problems came to a head during England's South Africa tour the following winter when, as third umpire, he failed to turn up the volume on his television set and thus incorrectly ruled Graeme Smith not out.
The embarrassing error led Andy Flower, the England coach, to make an official complaint to Roshan Mahanama, the ICC match referee, and a couple of months later Harper was left out of the World Twenty20 in West Indies, reportedly for "general performance reasons".
De Silva's most recent, and controversial, gaffe came during the World Cup in India when he gave Ireland's Gary Wilson out despite replays showing the batsman had offered a shot to a delivery that replays clearly indicated had hit him outside the line. The decision came in for some intense criticism, particularly from Ireland captain Will Porterfield, and it was decided that de Silva would not officiate in a couple of key group games that he was originally marked for. At the time, he was the only umpire among the 18 deployed whose success percentage in reviewed decisions was less than 50% during the tournament.
As it is the prerogative of the relevant home boards to nominate replacements on the international panel, de Silva could well move to fill the vacancy left by Dharmasena's promotion as the decision would rest with Sri Lanka Cricket. Harper's situation is a touch more uncertain. His existing contract expires in July and as it will be the England and Wales Cricket Board, rather than Cricket Australia, nominating a replacement for Kettleborough, Harper could well be out of a job.
At 38, Kettleborough is now the youngest umpire on the Elite panel. The Yorkshireman played 33 first-class matches from 1994 to 1999 for Middlesex and Yorkshire before he was included in the ECB panel of umpires in 2006. He made his international umpiring debut in the Twenty20 between England and Australia at Old Trafford in 2009 and to date has umpired in two Tests, 16 ODIs and two international Twenty20s. Like Dharmasena, Kettleborough was also in the panel of 18 umpires for the World Cup earlier this year.
The 40-year-old Dharmasena made his international umpiring debut in 2009 and has since umpired in two Tests, 25 ODIs and three T20Is. As a cricketer, he played 31 Tests and 141 ODIs for Sri Lanka between 1993 and 2004 and was part of Sri Lanka's World Cup-winning squad in 1996.

One complaint from the Irish and Silva is gone. We've been calling this J/A out for ages. Justice served. What irked me the most was BCBs inability to keep this guy off of officiating in BD matches. Merudondoheen.

Last week, ICC umpire review panel demoted Asoka De Silva and Daryl Harper from the elite panel to not-so-elite panel. Meaning, these two will still have the ability to screw up games, but not at tests. When asked for his comment, De Silva said " I was getting too bored with the white shirts in test cricket. Simon Taufel gets to wear orange shirts in the IPL, I also want to wear colorful shirts more often. I personally prefer the color yellow, as it indicates danger"

ICC annual review also mentioned that all the decision made by Asoka and Harper over the past 10 years will be overruled and deemed invalid. This has created huge confusion in the cricket world, South Africa now claims they now should own the trophy of the 2003-4 SA-AUS series as 17 South African wickets were claimed when Asoka De Silva was umpiring. Cricket Australia restrained from making any comment on this issue.
Several other claims are expected to be made in the upcoming few months. When asked, Indian captain Dhoni said "When we will get about 35 minutes off from playing IPL/SLPL/Big Bash/Friends providend T20 we will file a request to overturn the 2005 Pakistan series result"

The news has swept the Bangladeshi cricket forum, Banglacricket. Who are now planning to hold a party on the 31st of June, which they claim will be bigger than Chris Gayle's party events in Jamaica. Needless to say, not only the banglacricket members, but Asoka De Silva himself is invited to the party.

For Ashoka we couldn't win first test against Pakistan at Multan in 2003. Pakistan won the match by 1 wicket.

I will miss him,he was a great man.
because of him our cricket improved a lot.
whenever he was the umpire during a Bd match our bowlers/batsmen had to play exceptionaly good to avoid an unfair decision from this gentleman.

So, we have a party date!!

I would recommend to declare 31st June as Ashoka day.
