Cricket 24x7 - All the cricket

Breaking/Brief news

    November 23, 2004

    Steve Bucknor, who had quite a poor test match, feels that walkers put more pressure on umpires than otherwise since some of them could be doing so with a view to derive a favourable decision from the same umpire in future, as has been speculated here earlier.

    Bucknor, who is on the verge of umpiring 100 tests, has been quite pathetic over the last three or four years now. He gives poor decisions and also seems to want to control the game like a headmaster or policeman. Unfortunately though, I think it is unlikely that he will be eased out soon, unless of course he calls it a day after his 100th test. Given that David Shepherd is umpiring at 64, I dont think 60 is the age limit. So we can look forward to more bad decisions from Bucknor soon.
