The Umpire Strikes Back

If you’re already looking forward to the new cricket season then you’re probably staring at the worsening weather and wishing it was all over. There are plenty of other sports being played at this time of year, and there are plenty of little gambling opportunities but it is, as they say, just not the same. Betting on the horse racing or football requires that you have at least outside knowledge of the game and the players. If you’re into cricket, you might not be that much of a fanatic about any other sport.

Gambling in general is a pastime that doesn’t really have an off season. There are hundreds of different sports that you can bet on, and internationally there are even more. But if you’re just looking for a cricket fix that you can place a bet on, the only sport available for you is the international twenty-twenty league. But for something a little bit closer to home there is a new casino slot machine game that you can play online from the comfort of your own home. It’s called The Umpire strikes back and you’ve never seen cricket like it. You can find it through

If you’re a fan of slot machines in general then you’ll be happy to find out that there are not that many new elements for you to have to get your head around before you can get on with the game. To put it simply, if you’ve played slots before, you’ll have no trouble picking up this instant classic.

Gambling in and of itself has become somewhat of a national pastime. It gets more and more popular every year and with the increasing popularity comes a new influx of games such as this one. And with each new game that gets released the amount of people taking casino gaming to their heart as their favourite pastime grows too.


The captain of the Bangladesh cricket team, Mushfiqur Rahim, has admitted that he should not have resigned from the captaincy after his team’s defeat in the ODI series against Zimbabwe a couple of months back.

Bangladesh’s performance was poor in both the test and ODI series on that Zimbabwe tour.

After Bangladesh’s defeat in the 3rd ODI played at Bulawayo, Rahim told the reporters in the post match press conference that he was not going to continue captaining the Bangladesh side after the completion of this tour.
But, after returning to Bangladesh, Rahim realized his mistake and now, he has said publicly that he made a mistake by resigning.

In one of his recent interviews, Rahim said, “I took that decision in the heat of the moment. I shouldn’t have done that. I was the leader of the side, so, I should be motivating the other players in that tough time. But, I did exactly opposite.”

“Also, I was appointed as the skipper by Bangladesh Cricket Board. So, it was my responsibility to talk to the BCB officials before taking any decision.”

Bangladesh was defeated by 335 runs in the first test match on that Zimbabwe tour. That was Bangladesh’s biggest defeat in the test matches against Zimbabwe.

Then, in the ODI series, Bangladesh took a lead of 1-0 by winning the first ODI, but, they lost the next two ODIs and ended up losing the series.

Bangladesh got trailed by 0-1 in the T20 series as well, but, they won the second T20 match to level the series and restore some pride.

When asked about the overall performance of his team on that tour, Rahim said, “We didn’t manage to remain cool headed in crunch situations. We were in a good position in the third ODI, but, we messed it up. The same thing happened in the first T20 as well. We let the game drift away after being in a decent position.”

“However, there are some positives to take out from that tour as well. Ziaur Rahman showed his utility with the ball. Shakib and Nasir were consistent right through the tour. Overall, I think it was a tough tour, but, we learnt a lot.”
