    Appealing decisions?

    The ICC is thinking of allowing players to appeal 3 LBW decisons in an innings to be referred to a 3rd umpire. If they do it it seems like a good idea but probably won't work. THey'll most likely try it out in the next champions trophy if they decide to do it

    It'll go the same way as the white lines down the middle of the pitch.

    Who does the appealing, by the way?

    Can the batsman appeal and say 'I don't think I was out'?

    Devalues the umpires decision, making it a bad choice in my opinion.
    LBWs I've seen on replay are frequently inconclusive, and no doubt if they start there they'll continue on to catches, which would be even worse!
    Run-outs and stumpings only, as far as Im concerned.

    They're effectively creating a situation where a player can have more say in a decision than the on-field umpire, and that is really not the way it should be.

    This is being initiated with all good intentions but as with other rules, its success relies heavily upon those who implement it. The captains and the players should only appeal when they really feel the decision was wrong. Otherwise, it would just become a drag.

    Exactly! There's no authority, it's completely diminishing the idea of an umpire.

    i could'nt agree more.

    i think this appealin an umpires decion is ridiculous. if this becomes a legal opportunity then the on foield umpires may as well be scrapped completely and just use the match referee and a tv umpire as they do in rugby.

    i think this is a terrible idea and will bring the game into disrepute and cause a whole load of controversial incidents destroying the nature of the game.

    This is completely mindless.If this were implemented then it will destroy the game of cricket as we know it. There maybe errors on the part of umpires but to make the umpire a completely toothless creature is going to destroy the game. If umpires commit mistakes, the concerned parties can voice their opinions after the game as it is today and the ICC may choose to look into the issues as feedback on the umpires and do the proper quality assurances on the umpires it nominates. But that should be all.

    It would be so much easier if Umpires could just have a word in the ear... and if "did he hit it" could be referred. WITH use of Snickos.

    And if it went through, there would be an outcry in the future when a 'bad' decision went through because the team had already used it's 3, so they'd make it 6, then 10, then unlimited...so in time every decision would get appealed.

    Except of course that tends to ignore the fallability of Snicko.

    Such as in the cases of...?
    I've never once found Snicko to be unreliable.

    Except when it cannot prove 100% what the ball has hit.
