Spotted: Umpire Steve Bucknor in Amsterdam
January 15, 2008
Reader Kishore Mahadevan sent us this picture from Amsterdam.
'This picture with umpire Steve Bucknor was taken in 2004 at Amsterdam where India, Australia and Pakistan were playing a tri-series,' writes Kishore.
'My friend Ajay Joshi and I met Mr Bucknor at the McDonald's outlet in Amsterdam. With some hesitation I went and asked him, "Can we take a picture with you?"
Pleasantly surprised, Mr Bucknor replied, "With me?" When we said, "Yes, Mr Steve Bucknor", he nodded in trademark Bucknor style (the way he nods while declaring a batsman out!!) and posed with a smile for this photo.'
