Simon my man

I think I'm alarmingly close to falling in love with Simon Taufel; what an umpire! Not only does he get everything right, he has personality. Zaheer appeals for lbw; Taufel turns it down. It looked close, till you see the replay - that the ball pitched millimeters outside the legstump line. And as Zaheer appealed, Taufel looked straight at him, grinned and tilted his head slightly to his right - yup, that pitched just outside. Onya Simon. I've never seen you get one wrong. You'd be a shoo-in for the World Cup Final. Problem is, Australia is likely to be playing.
