    No runners ever and yes to UDRS

    ICC News: ICC cricket committee calls for DRS in all Tests | Cricket News | Cricinfo ICC Site | ESPN Cricinfo

    I like all the suggestions tbh. Would be fun to see fast bowlers head hunting the bastards to try to get them to retire through injury . Though with the protection the way it is, I doubt most injuries that require a runner could be caused by the bowling.

    Anyway it makes sense on it's own - in other sports if you get injured enough so that you can't perform an important part of your skill, you leave. Running is obviously a key part of being a batsman.

    In most team sports, though, if a player is too injured to continue, he gets a substitute. So it's not the same.

    All good measures but I refuse to call this anywhere near adequate whilst the ball can hit the stumps on a near run out and go for two, three, four extra runs. Worst rule in existence.

    Should be looking to increase the number, unless there's some mechanism whereby a referral isn't lost for those instances where it's an "umpire's call".

    Suggestion for no-runners is so good.

    I think that's a decent solution. I like two in Tests and one in ODIs, but you don't lose one if your appeal is denied based on 'umpire's call'. Already many of the appeals are useless, I really don't want to increase the number. Don't punish the good appeals, but there shouldn't be more overall referrals given.

    No leg byes- i wish they would change to that law. Leg byes suck. No runner is great.

    I have been calling for this for years! Why on earth, when the aim of the game is to hit the ball, should you be given runs for missing it!!!

    It's different to a wide or bye - in those cases, the fault lies with the bowling team.

    By contrast, with a leg bye, the bowling team is not at fault.

    Anyway, with that off my chest, I agree with no runners and having the DRS for all Test matches.

    Its insane. You miss the ball, yet get a run because it hit some other part of your body. FAIL. Always annoyed me. Especially the old 4 leg byes down the leg side.

    No runner won't work unless you allow substitutions.

    Increasing the luck quotient with it.

    Exactly.

    And they want to extend the same to tests too?

    Without adequate reviews the frustration when wrong decisions are made will only increase rather than decrease and there are many cases where the technology is not clear and there is no way to tell from the field ,where you feel it is out.

    Apart from doing away with runners, the committee, in a proposal that would prevent non-strikers from backing up too far, said bowlers be allowed to run them out provided they haven't completed their delivery swing. It also recommended an end to the practice of batsmen changing their direction while running between the wickets to obstruct the bowler or fielder's view while attempting a run-out which is often seen in one-day internationals.

    Agree on the first part here ,but what is wrong with the part in bold and how the heck would they judge it?

    Further to those, the committee called for experiments with newer ideas in domestic cricket, including removing restrictions for the maximum number of overs for a bowler, no compulsory close-catchers, number of bouncers allowed per over increased from one to two and a maximum of four fielders outside the 30-yard circles during the non-Powerplay overs.
    Like none of these ideas.

    The rule I don't get (minor though it be) is why overthrows aren't counted as extras like byes or leg byes. The batsman hits a shot worth 1 run but somehow picks up 5 because of crappy fielding...

    And it also counts against the poor bowler (unfair unless he was the one not backing up properly, I guess)
