I received this e-mail with regards to cricket titled "MCA against Umpires".There seem to be a number of things happening in Malaysian Cricket Association (MCA) particularly with the Umpires. I have always questioned the close relationship of an MCA official with certain personality and the infringement of ethics and principles of natural justice. It seem the hierarchy
in MCA is oblivion to such matters. This is disturbing as people in position think that they have the power to do what they want. This is where all the problems seem to start.
Below is the full text of the e-mail
"Injustice has happened again in Malaysian Cricket Association. We all know of how the National Captain and the National Coach stormed into the field and humiliated the National Umpire.
It is now known that the National Umpire has been suspended from umpiring MCA games and the duty of Secretary of the Umpires and Scorers Board. The duty is now being done by an employee of MCA.
Last weekend (30.8.2008) the employee who is also an umpire with the other umpire refused to bow to the demands of the Kuala Lumpur cricket team where the National Captain is a member.
The Hon. Sect. of MCA who was at the STC ground witnessing the game between KL and Selangor who is also the father of the National Captain totally went berserk accusing the umpires with all kind of humiliating words..
Now the employee has been taken off his duty as the umpire’s coordinator and a new person appointed. The acting competitions chairman seem to be very powerful now, dictating terms and appointing at his will.
Why is MCA always picking on the umpires whereas it was very clear that the National Captain and the National Coach are the ones who walked into the field?
Why is MCA against the umpires whereas it was very clear that the game between KL and Selangor cannot be played because of bad field condition? Both the umpires have suspended play for adverse conditions of ground.
Whenever an umpire reports about the National Captain or does not favour the KL team, the umpire becomes the enemy of MCA. Where is the justice? Have they taken any action against the National Captain and the National Coach?
What action should be taken against the Hon. Sect. of MCA for openly humiliating the umpires?
Why are they penalising the umpires all the time and not the players and MCA officials?
Things ahve to change in MCA.!!!!!!!!
Friends of the Umpires/Scorers"
It is sad as i review MCA's manner of decision making. They do not care what their officials do or how they are connected to parties involved in various incident. Various known principles are completely overlooked to just punish certain party who may not be with the people in power. This is why Malaysian cricket will never achieve the "Test" status. A total lack of professionalism in what MCA undertakes.
