ICC backs 'beleaguered' umpires following Trent Bridge horror show

Sydney, July 17 (ANI): The International Cricket Council has backed the three umpires that were involved in the first Ashes Test at Trent Bridge and the use of technology in the controversial game.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, ICC Chief Executive David Richardson recorded a statement saying that the umpires had done a good job under difficult conditions and it reflected the caliber of umpires Dar, Dharmasena and Erasmus who have consistently performed at a high level.

Richardson that umpires could also have good and bad days like the players but in the end, the umpire's decision, whether good or bad, is final, and must be accepted.

England's 14-run win over Australia at Trent Bridge was marred by a series of umpiring blunders and while acknowledging some mistakes, the ICC on Tuesday defended the performances of its officials and the Decision Review System, the report said. (ANI)
