The other Darrell

The ICC Elite panel has another Umpire with the Darrell name and a surname starting with H and ending in r, but his interpretation of exceptional situations could hardly be any more different from his infamous namesake.

cricinfo live commentary shares this bit of info about the Tendulkar incident in the 1st session at Newlands:

Umpire Harper said at the lunch break, "South African boys did discuss the possibility of a time-out, but this is real cricket ... This is Test cricket. I explained the situation to them and said I wouldn't give them out. You have to consider the circumstances and these were exceptional ones."
