- The hearing to determine the fate of Inzimam ul Haq is a façade as his fate has already been decided. The ICC has no plans to punish/make an example of Hair for his ill-judged and histrionic actions at The Oval test mach, thereby, laying all blame for the debacle at Inzi’s feet.
- By not condemning/sanctioning Hair the ICC is advocating his actions and implying that umpires have their full support irrespective of how inane or fallacious their future actions may be.
- The ICC is a feeble and incompetent organisation, inept at enforcing its own laws in order to effectively uphold the spirit of the game.
