Former umpire Judah Reuben dies aged 84

Judah Reuben, who umpired ten Tests in India between 1969-70 and 1976-77, has died at his Mumbai home after a fall. He was 84.

Reuben's international career started and ended amid controversy. His debut, in the India-Australia Test at Eden Gardens, came in a match marred by rioting, and his last match at Madras is best remembered for being the one where England's John Lever was accused of cheating after using a gauze strip soaked in Vaseline to counteract sweating.

Reuben worked as a finger print expert in the Mumbai police.
