Below is a mail i received on what the writer refers as "MCA against Umpires 2"..If what he says is the truth then MCA seem to have adopted a policy of suppressing issues from being brought to the forefront. If it is not, then the writer must know it is not proper to make wrongful accusations.
I will not make any comments as i have yet to independently verify the matter. I will not invoke past incidents to form an opinion because it would mean i am not giving each case its merit. So if anyone in the Financial Committee or the Council could enlighten us,it would be helpful...
Below is the text of the mail:
"MCA is at it again. In the last email I had mentioned of the father and the impertinent son, i..e. the Hon. Sect. and the National Captain abusing the umpires. Reports were sent by the umpire concerned to MCA regarding the abuse.
Surprisingly, this matter was discussed in a Financial Committee meeting and the whole thing was hushed up. The Hon. Sect. told the umpire concerned that the matter was discussed at the Financial Committee meeting and no further action shall be taken. I am sure the Financial Committee meeting is not the right setting to discuss this matter.
The unhappy umpire however, called the Chairman of the Umpires and Scorers Board and told him of the Financial Committee’s meeting and decision. He requested that this matter to be channelled at the Council or EXCO meeting.
MCA had their Council meeting on Sunday 14th September 2008. Ironically both the Hon. Sect. and the Umpires and Scorers Board Chairman did not show up at the Council meeting. A Good Samaritan from the Council brought up the issue but it was put to halt by the acting Competitions Chairman.
"Looks like the Hon. Sect., the Umpires and Scorers Board Chairman and the Acting Competitions Chairman are scratching each other’s back.
All the current happening has created a sensitivity of unhappiness among the umpiring circle.
Apart from that, a rumour is going around mentioning that a Vice President of MCA has requested the Asian Cricket Council to conduct an umpires course in Malaysia specially for the Pakistanis who are in Malaysia so that MCA can use these Pakistanis to replace the Malaysian Umpires. I hope that it remains as rumours.
