G’bye Shep!

David Shepherd, one of my favourite characters from cricket will retire today after the third ODI between England and Australia. In an interview to Cricinfo, the portly, superstituous and highly respected upmire said "Players are the stars.
The game of cricket is for players not umpires." That's the man… The loser will be cricket.
Shepherd has been known for his antics (jumping when the score is on 111, 222 or so on) as much as his quality as an umpire. As a cricket fan, I always felt if he was umpiring an India match, the decisions would be fair.
We'll miss you Shep. Enjoy retired life.
Full Interview.
