Peter McConnell umpired in 22 Tests who attracted controversy in two series. In 1990-91 he was embroiled in a row when he responded to an enquiry from Phil Tufnell as to how many balls remained in an over by snapping: "Count 'em yourself you Pommie ***." The following season his final appearance, in a Test against India, was, according to Wisden, "marred by controversy over lbw decisions - eight times Indians were given out, while all but two of their own appeals were rejected".
The current Ranji season is proving to be a breakout one for Delhi's Rishabh Pant, who is aiming to make it big for his mentor, Tarak Sinha
