Kingston:High profile umpire Steve Bucknor claimed that he and Pakistan umpire Aleem Dar received death threats during the Centurion Test between South Africa and England.

The 58-year-old veteran umpire said received a threat to kill both in a phone call made to the chief executive's office at the ground.

"If umpires react to threats like that, then there will be a flood of them. I have to say that I am not really worried about it - the words were serious, but I am not sure whether the person who said them was serious - I am certain it was just a hoax call," he said.
