<i>Hair urges them to quit</i>
Darrell Hair, the former international umpire at the centre of the furore surrounding the 2006 Oval Test, has called on all the International Cricket Council (ICC) board members involved in the original decision to change the result of the match to resign. Last weekend the ICC executive voted to overturn its ruling altering the result of the game from an England win to a draw.
"All the board members who were involved in the earlier decision should resign now," Hair said. "And this should also include the present ICC president David Morgan. The first to go should be David Richardson [the ICC's general manager -- cricket) and Doug Cowie [the ICC's manager for umpires].
"I felt the gun was loaded by the ICC board, and Richardson and [the chief executive] Malcolm Speed were only too happy to pull the trigger."
