    Said this many times, in any case I just don't trust umpires, far prefer the decision to be left to technology.

    massive amir-esqsue no ball in the prior delivery that wasnt picked up

    This should be the end of Chris Gaffney's participation in the tournament.

    I'm willing to give him the benefit of doubt because every ump has a bad day on the field. But I really hope he improves.

    he can improve out of the world cup, you cant have such errors in a tournament.

    He is compromised now, players won't have faith in his decisions

    that might be the worst piece of umpiring in the last decade. How can you miss a noball that big? and what is the third umpire for? how hard is to check every ball quietly while bowler is walking back to his mark.

    replays have shown that on the ball before Gayle was dismissed, Starc overstepped by about four inches but no no-ball was signaled by umpire Gaffaney. It would have been a free hit on the ball he was given lbw.

    Karma.

    Russell bowled 6 short pitched balls in one over, 4 were above shoulder height and bowler was not called for bouncers. That was turning point of the match when batsmen perceived that Umpiring was biased.

    Karma ! Balanced out with WI.

    At some moment later in World Cup, it will balance out for Pakistan too, in favour.

    Surely if the free hit law is in place they should also check the front foot of the delivery before? But really the umpires surely shouldn’t be that poor that such a measure has to be taken

    As of late yes their batting in ODI and Test has improved, but its mostly down to new talent also. Don't Think the old guard would of had much patience.

    WIN are 15 runs ahead in DWL (1 wicket a head actually, even 4 down keeps them ahead). They'll have to play poor here to lose.

    suicidal. How do these low ranked teams some contrive to screw up winning position? I guess that is why they are lower ranked sides to begin with.

    Harsha Bhogle talks some rubbish.

    This is a 50/50 game and with a rr of just over 6 required, Windies don't need to anything crazy.

    But they will do some crazy stuff. I want to be pleasantly surprised though. Want WI to win. But Aussies can come back any time.

    Disgraceful umpiring today. Have the umps had a bet on Australia or something?

    Somebody needs to check if both umpires' bank accounts received a big increase recently or not.

    124 from 118 at Trent bridge is nothing. WIs should cruise home here as long as they don’t do anything stupid.
