Umpire Steve Bucknor....


At the age of 63 , I imagine , he should be retired, enjoying the Carribean beaches or spending time with his grandchildren. Well , no such luck. He is still umpiring , giving away terrible decisions of important players in crucial situations which could change the whole course of a match . He is very consistent at that. Consistent with bad decisions , I mean. Maybe the word ' consistent' is the only thing that the ICC considered to extend his retirement age. The official age of retirement for Umpires is 60, though that could be extended in particular cases regarding the merits of a particular Umpire. Mr.Bucknor is one such 'particular Umpire' . God knows what his merits are .!!

I don't know if he is biased or is it just a co-incidence that he stores his best ' bad decisions ' for India , but what I know for sure is he has fallen from grace nowadays because of his consistent inconsistencies . After the recent 'India-Australia' test match at Sydney, he has certainly become the Sacred Cow.

Infact , I heard one of the Cricket experts say - ' India will have to take 13 wickets & lose only 8 wickets in an innings to win a test match if Mr.Bucknor is in business '. My addition to it - ' You also get a fine for 'racial abuse ' or ' over appealing ' or some silly reason , to make it a package ' .

Another quality of his that makes my BP levels rise is that he gives a silly smile after making a terribly wrong decision , suggesting that the decision he made was so very obvious . Everytime he does that , my TV screen is in danger .

It'll be funny to say that he's had a personal effect on me - ' I get a fine for 'Racial Abuse ' at home everytime he makes a ' Hair Raising ' decision ..!!!
