"Having two umpires from your own club officiating in a match in which you need 12 runs off the last over is a recipe for disaster and that is what nearly transpired during the match.
The last over of the day proved incendiary as Poreporena, needing 12 to win, were given a blatant hand by clubman Rarua Agalu standing as square leg umpire when he chose not to give his own team captain John Ovia out for a clear-cut run out off the first ball."

Latif has suggested that selectors should consult with the umpires before choosing their starting eleven.
New Zealand umpire Kathy Cross achieved a new milestone in the men's game during the Second Test between the New Zealand men and England at the Basin Reserve, Wellington in March. The 44 year-old from Hutt Valley was appointed as fourth umpire for the Test, the first time that a woman has been included among the umpiring team for a men's international cricket match.
