Shane Warne and Umpires
May 11, 2008 6:46pm CST
If you have been watching iplt20 cricket you would have noticed the umpires calling it wrongs many a times. If you had been watching ICL cricket matches you would have noticed that not a single judgment has gone wrong there. If they get doubt they refer to the third umpire. There is also the challenge card, where the players can challenge a decision and it will be referred to the third umpire. Yesterday in the match between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils again the umpires had been calling wrong and always the suferer was Delhi Daredevils. Which ironically is the sole reason for the defeat of Delhi team yesterday. Even before when Rajasthan team played with other teams the umpires were always if favour of Rajasthan teams. Are umpires afraid of Share Warne? I am sure if the umpire gives wrong decisions against Shane Warne he is going to lamblast the umpires through media and may go to the extent of complaining against him with BCCI through his sponsors. Because of this....ipl lost its glamour, it is frustration for the fans of a particular team here Delhi team. Chances of people losing interest in future matches looms large. The loss will be for cricket!!!

I have watched both ICL matches and IPL matches. To be truthful I enjoyed more watching ICL matches to IPL matches. The TV media was too good at ICL matches showing all the dances etc., but the same is not with IPL matches. I give full marks to ICL tournaments.

It is high time that the ICL system be introduced even in IPL. Because due to wrong decisions at crucial times many teams and players losing their games and careers. Added to it is that a player should not express an iota of resentment. He has to suppress hard feelings in himself and the media not lagging behind highlights failures like anything.

But IPL for the reasons best kept within themselves does not bother the sentiments of either the fans who gets frustrated with those decisions or the affected players. Something should be there? Or else what is that it forebades them not to follow the ICL method. There was not a single decision which went wrong in ICL matches. I enjoyed all the ICL matches especially Chennai Super Stars fixures.
