    I could hear the nick!

    The surest indicator that international umpiring isn't too great came last Saturday when during the first one-dayer between England and Sri Lanka at Lord's, Muralitharan got Tim Bresnan to edge a ball to wicket-keeper Sangakkara. To his and Sangakkara's dismay, Bresnan was given not out by the umpire.
    Muralitharan to Bresnan, no run, quicker delivery outside the off stump and the edge is produced, Sangakkara makes no mistake but umpire Llong is not convinced!
    The edge was so bloody obvious that I, sitting 8000 km away, could hear the nick!

    i think a visit to west indies also affects umpiring skills...

    Each day of test cricket there only throws up more examples of bad umpiring
