Rodney James Tucker (born 28 August 1964) is an Australian cricket umpire and member of the ICC Elite Umpire Panel. He was a cricketer who played briefly for New South Wales from 1985/86 to 1987/88, before moving to Tasmania who he played for from 1987/88 to 1998/99. He was also vice-captain of Tasmania from 1991/92 until 1995/96. He briefly played as Captain/Coach for the Canberra Comets in the 1999/00 season before retiring as player.

Playing career

A versatile left hand batsman, he scored 5076 first class runs at an average of 36.25, and took 123 first class wickets at 41.40 bowling right arm medium. He played in Tasmania's sides that were twice runners-up in the Sheffield Shield in 1993-94, and 1997-98.

Umpiring career

After his playing career, Tucker turned to umpiring. He appointed to the ICC International Panel of Umpires[1] in 2008 and was quickly promoted to the ICC Elite Umpire Panel in 2010.

Umpiring controversies

On 16 August in a test match between South Africa and England at Lords, Rod Tucker made a very controversial decision as a 3rd umpire. England bowler Finn made an appeal against Jacques Kallis for a catch down the leg side but umpire Kumar Dharmasena gave it not out. England reviewed the decision and Rod Tucker overturned the decision. But he overlooked the fact that Kallis' bottom hand had been withdrawn from the bat when the ball made contact with his glove and so he should be given not out. Also there was no conclusive evidence about ball touching bat or gloves. [2]
