I really don't think so. Once you've said you'll look at the end of the over, you can't have the players telling you to look sooner.

Point is hhe should have had a look at the ball then, not at the end of the over.

I really don't see that it's that big a deal TBH. 4 or 5 balls makes next to no difference. Why not leave it to the end of the over?

In those days there wasn't a third and fourth umpire hanging around like a demented waiter with a box of alternative balls. If a bowler complained about a ball going out of shape they would regularly wait until the end of an over to see if might be knocked back into shape.

I would not:@ On that list from what I have read only Benaud, Chappelli, Marlar, Cozier and CMJ would really know their history of cricket, I thought that list a joke tbh
Agree that some might know their history better than others. But this is not a history question, this is a ' current ' question. And the above panel would know the players they've played with or viewed. Also, It is as large and diverse a panel as one could ask for.

There is no greater accolade than praise from your peers and pundits.

You could add the words "in my opinion" to this one. Your trying to make it sound like only 5% of the cricketing public would rate Hadlee and/or Marshall above Holding. Its hardly like suggesting Buster Douglas was a better heavy weight than Muhammad Ali is it 8-)
