They are BACK!

Filed under: Cricket — Porcupyn @ 7:47 am

Yup, Bucknor and Hair are both back officiating in Cricket Tests. I request the ICC to ensure that these guys definitely do not officiate in matches involving India (I doubt anyone on the team likes either of these gentlemen), Pakistan (Shoaib Akhtar, if no one else) and Sri Lanka (Muttiah Muralitharan).

Heck, I think the only matches they should officiate in are: a) The Ashes b) Kenya vs. Zimbabwe c) England vs. South Africa d) Trans-Tasman series (those are the only series where I think these fellas might stay impartial, neutral umpiring be damned!). Plus, as needed, a random combination of those teams.



  1. It’s interesting coz both of them have different set of problems…one physical and the other mental (or does that qualify as emotional?)

  2. D.S.:

    Agree. They are similar to the proverbial blind/lame combination – Hair would be the lame-duck dude, and Bucknor the legally blind one, whose saving grace (?) is that he is definitely not colour-blind – he can distinguish white from black from brown very well!

    No kidding! We need to have Tennis’s Grand Slam type replays in Cricket too.
