Listening and seeing the appeals made by many professional cricketers you wonder if they have ever glanced at the book of rules.

The worst offenders are wicket keepers and Kieswetter is one bad mug. Swann thinks everone is out when he appeals and Broad is no better.

Then again some of the umpires need to be hanged from the rafters of the stadiums the umpire at. Coco the Clown aka Billy Bowden, Asad Rauf and his Pakistani partner have shown that you do not have be first class players to be good umpires. The joke selection is Chris Broad as match umpire. That guy was the pits when he played.. now he is a racist judge!
