I am unable to watch the tests - boo - but read this on CricInfo. Is
Cooray really being this apprehensive?
"Muralitharan went wicketless until the 85th over of the day, his spin
blunted by England's fine batting and a Sri Lankan umpire, B.C. Cooray,
too scared to raise his finger after the blunders made in Galle. Hussain
batted heroically, but he should have been sent on his merry way when he
had made 50 and 62 as television replays confirmed that he had been
caught at silly point off Muralitharan."
And...
"The life then started to flow back into Sanath Jayasuriya's weary men
and Muttiah Muralitharan was called back for one last spell. He finally
bowled Nasser Hussain, who slogged to leg like a man taking his last
breath, for 109. In his next over he was robbed of Graeme Hick's wicket
as B.C. Cooray wrongly ruled that he had been caught off a bump ball."

He's just given Jayasuriya out off a bump ball. Where did they get this
umpire?

From the retirement home where he went after giving Hussain out lbw
off a thick edge in South Africa last winter, whence he was summoned
to fill the breach when KT Francis retired.

He certainly seems determined to gift this match to England.

They may have got some good players, but SL don't half have ***
umpires.

Cheers,

Mike

Ah, but shurely it's the England players who are cheating by
appealing?

Actually, to be serious, it's just as annoying, if not more so, to me
when England get the benefit of bad decisions. Let's face it, it's
embarrassing.

cheers,

Neil

I think he may have been Manuel's understudy! Learning from the master
himself :-)

Not only that. Reviewing some of the press after T1, there were picture
groups of the 8/9/10 shockers that cost England the test. For some
reason these are absent after T2.

Well there would be plenty of them, but it would be a bit tacky to show them
after you've won the Test.
