Flower demands umpire 'respect'
- From the section Cricket
England coach Andy Flower demands that his players show "respect" to their opponents and officials following a row over a disputed catch in their warm-up victory over a Sri Lankan Board XI.
The coach's comments follow spinner Graeme Swann describing batsmen Dilruwan Perera as "cheating" by not walking after England captain Andrew Strauss had claimed a low catch to dismiss him.
After ruling in Perara's favour, the umpires were surrounded by England fielders and bowler James Anderson conceded that their reaction was "over the top".
