Asoka D’Awful

April 19, 2003

It never ceases to amaze me how some umpires can make it to the highest level without knowing the basic rules of cricket.

The first session is only half way done, and already Asoka has fired both Hayden and Langer in extremely ordinary fashion.

Both dismissals were near identical. Right armed bowler to left handed batsman. Both pitched outside the leg stump. Both were clearly not out because they pitched outside leg.

Asoka was awful in the last test, and he’s already proving himself to be continually awful. How is he standing in a test match?

Worst. Umpire. Ever. (Except Venkat)
