Darrell Hair verdict

The hearing into 4 charges laid by the International Cricket Council (ICC) under its Code of Conduct against Umpire Darrell Hair was held last night (Thursday 11 February 1999)

The hearing into 4 charges laid by the International Cricket Council (ICC) under its Code of Conduct against Umpire Darrell Hair was held last night (Thursday 11 February 1999). Mr Hair was charged by the ICC with 4 breaches of clause 8 of the Code following publication of his book "The Decision Maker".
Clause 8 of the ICC Code of Conduct refers to conduct detrimental to the game.
ACB Code of Conduct Commissioner, Judge Gordon Lewis, conducted the Hearing in Melbourne. Judge Lewis is a judge in the Victorian County Court.
Mr. Hair represented himself.
ICC Chief Executive David Richards represented the ICC.
Judge Lewis found Mr Hair guilty of 2 charges; the other 2 were dismissed.
Judge Lewis found he was unable to identify a penalty process in the ICC Code of Conduct that applied to umpires.
Accordingly, no penalty was applied to Mr Hair.
"We will take careful note of Jude Lewis' views about the inability of the Code of Conduct to adequately deal with any penalty for an umpire and refer his detailed reasons to our solicitors for their advice in regard to the Code" said David Richards, ICC Chief Executive.
