Australian vice-captain Brad Haddin has strongly criticised the umpiring during the current Ashes series and said that some umpires cracked under pressure.

According to news.com.au, Haddin expressed that England deserved to be in the position they are in at 3-0 but the standard of umpiring in the series was something that needed to be looked at.

Haddin was visibly angry when given out LBW by umpire Tony Hill during Australia's calamitous second innings of the fourth Test, the report said.

Haddin also believes that, with the DRS process displayed on screens at the ground, the crowd can also have an impact on the umpires and he wants the DRS to be taken out of players' hands, with umpires have the sole right to refer close decisions, the report added. (ANI)
