Indian umpires on trial in IPL 10

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

An umpire should be phlegmatic, unobtrusive, dignified, courteous, of absolute integrity and ever prepared to discharge his duties fearlessly and impartially. The finest umpires are those who appear to make the fewest mistakes. IPL 10 opened up Pandora's Box and gave an indication that the umpiring standards in India have become worse. The problem relating to the poor standard of umpiring has not been addressed properly in the past and it is time to pay attention to this vital department of the game. Indian umpires lack exposure and that is revealed at the highest level with silly mistakes, which even club level umpires will not commit. In this regard, the umpires play a pivotal role in conducting the game in a most dignified way. Indian umpires should learn the art of umpiring by reading more books on cricket umpiring, have group discussions on various aspects of umpiring and should have the highest level of fitness. Erratic umpiring has become the bane of Indian cricket and unless steps are taken in time to improve the standards from the lower level, the future of Indian umpiring is rather bleak.
