    I think the umpiring in general was pretty good. During the semi, they flashed the stats and something like 21% of decisions had been overturned.

    If you count out Asoka de Silva's decisions it's even better.

    All the umpires were superb, but I think Aleem Dar was the under-stated one. Everybody was focussing on Simon Taufel but it's good to know that the subcontinent can produce equally good umpires. :yes

    taufel had couple of wrong decisions side by his name. & I don't think you people will forget that clear run of smith of windies against India, which taufel did not feel to refer to third umpire, and he [smith] went on to make 70 odd runs.

    I am still waiting for an Indian umpire of the stature and calibre of Srinivas Venkataraghavan. Too bad we haven't got any at the moment who can be called top notch. There are some good ones going around at the moment, but I don't think they can match up to the best currently.
