Lack offair play

THE EDITOR: The decision to pick two Barbadians and a Guyanese umpire for the CPL qualifier 2 on Thursday seems a clear effort to omit TKR from the final.

On one hand, having to bowl a wet unchanged ball in the last two overs resulted in 40 runs as three no-balls were bowled when the Barbados Tridents batted.

On the other hand, the ball was continually changed when TKR batted, even in the last two overs, so that Tridents had a hard dry ball.

Clearly, an unfair advantage was given to the Tridents, especially for those four overs. Whoever selected those umpires had no care for fair play or its appearance.
