first_imgMahendra Singh Dhoni is not at all pleased with the use of some umpiring devices like ear-piece, which he feels prevents the on-field official from hearing nicks and edges in a packed stadium.

You have all seen umpiring. It’s your call.””One thing certainly should be done. Umpires now use walkie talkies as well as wear ear piece in one ear which effectively means they are umpiring with one ear.”It’s a difficult job. One needs to consider this. They are hearing with one ear. I believe there is no point having a ear piece when the bowler is bowling as you don’t need to use it then. It’s better to use both ears as a lot of things might happen on field,” the skipper said at the post match press conference.

Match referees say that microphone is off when there is a situation of one guy from one team saying something to the other guy.But it is very strange that whenever I say something, they always catch it.advertisement”Something may be very fishy from my side or match referee’s side! For example, okay this guy used a word that should not be used and we find mike is off but whatever I say, mike is always on,” Dhoni took a veiled dig at the match officials.”last_img
