Third umpires..

Just had to open a thread because am so annoyed at the pathetic standard of 3rd umpiring.
We saw the other day Sami being given out after the umpire on the field said he wasn't out. yet the 3rd umpire gave him. He may have gloved it... But todays game just seen the 3rd umpire give a NZ batsman out with no sound at all from snicko. . Its boarding on cheating..
The standard of officiating from Umpires and Refs is bloody useless.

Remember this one in the Ashes a few years ago and this went to referral, clear daylight and they still gave it out

that new zealand umpire. who gave Flintoff out once when the ball missed the bat by a foot.. was clearly a cheat,. I forget his name now. But seen plenty of his decisions on youtube.. to know he was bent as meat skewer..
In that game in NZ the series finished 1-1 and even Fleming the NZ captain apologised for the umpiring in that game...

It was the one Khawaja got caught behind against Swann. Clear daylight between bat and ball
