Sri Lanka Umpire Kumar Dharmasena’s LBW Of New Zealand Guptill vs. India In ICCWT20 SHOCKING!

by Anura Guruge


kumarshocking2nd ball. It was high and missing leg. What was Kumar Dharmasena or more to the point not thinking?

Diabolical. Shocking.

Was HE cheating? Is he on the make? How much was the LBW worth … $100,000?

That was bad. I like New Zealand BUT I wouldn’t class myself a mega NZ fan, but this annoyed me, no end.

Kumar, of late, is coming across as a poser. Very concerned about looking cool. Well this wasn’t cool.

Yes, we all make mistakes BUT in umpiring we are also all told about caution, doubt, benefit of the doubt.

They should think very carefully about letting him stand again in this important Championship.

I am sure New Zealand will lodge a complaint.

In the meantime I will hang my head in shame.

Talking of New Zealand I had NO IDEA that Martin Crowe had died. WOW. I liked him. Great cricketer. 10 years younger than I. Wow. Doesn’t seem right. I will miss him.

Who Knew That Afghanistan Can Play Serious (Near) World Class Cricket? Not I.

Wow. WOw. WOW!

Who knew? Not I. I think I had seen them once, last year, in some kind of T20 qualifier. I also happened to see their Under 19 team in the U19 Championship. But I never took them seriously.

Weren’t a British colony. So who taught them to play cricket and where can they play.

I happened to watch the highlights of Match 9, Zimbabwe vs Afghanistan Sunday night because I wanted to catch ALL the Zimbabwe games before the Super 10 matches started. I like Zimbabwe. They remind me of MY West Indies of the late 1970s and early 1980s. I was pretty sure that Zimbabwe would win, with overs to spare, and qualify.

Was I wrong. The Afghans sure know how to play T20. I am in awe. I will have to look up cricket in Afghanistan. I thought they would not have the time or the facilities.

Now we will see them a few more times playing the big boys and the West Indies girls.

My congratulations to Afghanistan. Well done. You played well. I will watch the whole match as soon as I get the time.

Thank YOU. That was quite the match.
