It is now well over 60 years since the LBW rule was last ammended. It has since remained unchanged. There has always been a debate that it should be modified. Amongst those who suggest that was the Don on whose (besides others including Larwood) the last change was made to declare a batsman out even if the ball pitched outside the off stump.
It was argued then, and the arguement holds, that batsmen were offering the pad too often in defense AND leg theory was becoming popular since bowlers did not benefit from great bowling aimed at our just outside the off stump.
Bradman argued, then and throughout his life, that the law should have gone further and a batsman should be declared out EVEN if the point of contact was outside the off stump and he did offer a stroke.
a) Tilt the balance a bit less in the batsman's favour which it was becoming
b) Reduce the inclination for negative (leg stump and outside) bowling.
c) Give boost to spinners
d) Make for more attractive cricket since batsmen would have to play more often
Opinions please ??
I have always been for it.
