Is the 3rd umpire Anil Choudary in this test?

Menon is India’s only Test umpire. The more stout chap.

England are going to struggle to take 30 wickets here.

How did that picture show his foot was grounded ??
Surely he needed to roll it on to get a better view on whether it was grounded.
The 3rd umpire seems to want to rush every call.

Once again, just viewed from one camera! What about the other side? The stump camera? Etc...

Well that was clearly out - his foot came up and then hit the ground after the bails were dislodged.

I couldn't tell for certain but I can't fathom why another angle wasn't used or why it was clearly grounded.

As Root said we just want consistency. Which we are not getting. 3rd umpire needs to be replaced.

Michael Vaughan has just made that very point on TMS ""This is annoying me. That is really poor from the third umpire, he has not looked at every angle again. Joe Root is right in what he is saying to the umpire".

Bizarrely no comment from the TV commentary team.

He was clearly in the process of lifting and putting down his foot. Outrageous decision making. But not entirely unexpected of course.

The worst thing about this is that they don’t need to cheat, they’re killing us and don’t need the 3rd umpire to pretend not to know the rules.
neutral umpires imo were brought in as the tours of Pakistan and India were a joke, that stumping shows why we need to revert back to them ASAP.

Would prefer to think he’s incompetent rather than crooked but it’s hard not to be suspicious.

Yes possibly.... but.... it would be a damn sight closer with neutral umpires (we would still be losing Don’t get me wrong!)

I thought these series during the pandemic enabled one home umpire to stand in each test. India have all 5 officials here. Why is that?

Complete domination by India. It was an excellent toss to lose. The meltdown on here is similar to the second day in the second test at Chennai. Some of the comments actually are laughable. In fact, I’ve decided not to post on this thread any more as it is completely biased and not engaging - just a bunch of blokes whinging.

Final word. Really should look how England only scored 112 after being 74-2.

Once again, I ask you, hand on heart, were the correct processes followed for the catch and the stumping?
If they weren’t (they weren’t by the way) answer why that is. Add this to the performances in the 2nd test By the third umpire and you will probably see why there is some whinging!

Difficult when one side is playing 16 men.

Lets get real here despite the umpring England have been outplayed. Batting was very poor indeed.

I will say though that given we are in technological age of remote working why the third umpire duties can't be moved to a studio outside India where you have neutral guys taking all the time they need to make the correct decisions.

:idea: Stockley Park! Mike Dean and Keith Stroud would be good at this.

Come on IB, you can handle this bunch. You should be enjoying this thread and your participation adds some much needed partisan spice.
100% agree, India dominated and have batted and bowled better than England but you have to say that the 3rd umpire’s due process leaves something to be desired. More visible diligence might not change any of the decisions but would give more confidence in the integrity of them, no ?

Is nothing to what the Matchday thread later might bring only that will be much less biased ;)
It's f***ing embarrassing mate. The only poster whom happens to be the only non-English poster on this thread that commented on Crawley 50 not once but twice was me. I recognise when an opponent plays well.

As Alistair Cook said after close of play that all the decisions in the end was correct.

Where the English posters on this thread need to take a closer look at the selection (awful rotation), Anderson rested last test, Stones performing better than Broad last test but left out, treatment of Ali, Butler allowed to go home after the 1st test, treatment of Bess (telling him more or less he needs to improve publicly), Bairstow well he is Bairstow (a reason he was dropped in the last ashes), Stokes being scared to face spin (he looks completed lost how to bat), Root finger pointing and general behaviour of the English team today, Pope dropping Kohli ...... yes there are all the fault of the 3rd Umpires.

Never seen more whinging on a non-Football thread than this one. I'm done on this thread and feel free :D

All on here are cricket fans and will acknowledge defeat or good play by the opposition. India easily outplayed England today and will more than likely win this game as a result

The essence of cricket though is fair play and it should rightly be called out as it ruins the integrity of the game. The process for making decisions today was wrong and shoddy and shouldn't happen in an important series between top nations. If it wasn't bias, it was crap and neither should be seen as acceptable.

I've said multiple times that England have been outplayed by a much better time and that umpires call is the issue not the umpires.

My only gripe is with the 3rd umpire who hasn't been following the protocols who isn't up to his job!

Also Kohli asked for a review when he was bowled last test!

Burying your head in the sand and doing a runner isn't the answer. I enjoy your point of view and hope you carry on posting.

We all acknowledge England haven't played well but just want fair umpiring and an even contest, which we aren't getting.

The thing I don’t like here by IB is that it appears because we are losing we can’t complain about atrocious umpiring - which it has been. It isn’t sour grapes. Most on here have said we have been poor. By complaining about the umpiring I am not belittling India’s performance

I am sure Banana loves being called English.😂

Think you need to look at the game without your rose tinted glasses. There isn’t an English fan that thinks India aren’t the better team. In fact I predicted 4-0. It’s just a shame the way they go about their cricket.

You yourself admitted that Kohli was out of order, so explain to me why he wasn’t given a demerit point. If Root was out of order(didn’t see it) then he deserves one too.

England’s rotation and selection is a problem and a lot of the issues we have are of our own doing but if you are a true cricket fan you will realise that the umpiring on pitch and off has been substandard. I think it is human nature to look at the umpires nationality first and then experience level second.

If you want to sulk then that’s your problem, but I am sure you will be back when you have trounced us.

Interesting start to the morning. If we manage to keep the lead to less than 100, there is a remote possibility that we could get back into the game. Jack Leach bowling very well.
