000 dollar for qutting umpiring, the ICC would have done well to keep the e-mail to itself instead of going public with it. He said the governing body has proven itself to be a weak organisation by making the issue public.

The former captain and coach felt Hair has now opened the doors for other umpires to make similar demands in future.

''Hair also made his position more controversial. Why (has) Hair made this offer in return for money,'' said Miandad.

''Umpires cannot be allowed to do this, otherwise every second umpire after (this) controversy would do the same,'' he said, calling on the ICC not to allow Hair to retire without facing an inquiry.
