You cannot be serious!

Sheer chutzpah!

Two thoughts: -

1) Ten years ago the Australians wouldn't have cared two hoots over who was umpiring. Haven't times changed!

2) It's lucky the ECB put up Andrew Strauss to give the measured reponse to this suggestion. E.g., "thanks for the suggestion, but no thanks." Had they asked 99.9% of English cricket supporters to respond, the pithy, two-word answer would have caused a diplomatic incident...
