In the latest episode of the podcast we chat about the challenge of being a modern umpire – and how excess scrutiny and knee-jerk reactions from pundits have combined to create a toxic environment.

Talking Points:

  • The challenge for modern umpires – with ball-by-ball social media scrutiny
  • How TV replays can fool us into thinking that umpiring is an easy task
  • Has DRS accelerated the erosion of the umpire’s authority?
  • The frequent grumbling around the soft-signal  – is it even needed?
  • The issue with Sachin Tendulkar’s reservation about umpire’s call
  • The value of umpiring judgement, and why the on-field umpire’s decision is vital
  • Ben Stokes’ misunderstanding of the soft-signal
  • Do umpires’ performance change based on the match situation?
  • Will cricket go the way of American football with video replays?
