You must have belief that Darrell Hair is the worst umpire of the all time cricket. But sorry, there are more in the list and I will add one by one here.

See the below Video and tell how he was given out. No appeal, ball going far from the bat, nothing but he is given out.


The test which will remember for the umpires. It's none but India vs Australia - Sydney Test.


Compilation of some close and controversial decisions given not out by umpires.

The batter seemed awfully eager to walk. How strange.

Some claim he was hitwicket. But footage do not show that...

That India Australia Test video umpiring was utterly nonsense umpiring. If Buckner was not sure then he should have gone for the third umpire. Something smells fishy here, may be it's Buckner's mind!!!

This became controversial for no reason. Bucknor has always not prefered to go Third Umpire and many times this has happen.

The test became controversial because lot of decisions were given against Indians. I will say it too many decisions.

That was the main point. Why were there so many mistakes by the same person against the same team. I am not Indian, so I don't really care about the team or country, but I am for the spirit of the game. No matter of what he likes to do or how much confidence he has in his eyes, he should always have gone for third umpire, just to make sure.

Aus vs Ind was very tense match, and organizers should have understood the severity of the situation. Ultimately, this did not bring out any good in either side. There were no winners, and every one lost. It sucked!!!

Umpire commits many mistakes but I think its part of game. The game became because all mistakes came in one game.... and that too most of them against Indians.

But Cricket has rules and one cannot change it for any reason this way. We should keep going....

Yes you are right...let the game go on!!!

3rd one is fine. it's not a controversial decision. clearly the ball touched the ground before it goes to slip fielder. that was a nice umpiring that he went to 3rd umpire.

but i must say that Bucknor did his worst umpiring in that aussie tour. and no wonder that he retired immediately or ICC made him go with bit of respect.

Good umpiring is must for playing a fair play of cricket. Umpires has to shoulder with lots of responsibility. They must be up to that...
