The ICC playing conditions relating to this part of the system come under Process of Consultation No. 3.3 (i). It states that if a 'not out' decision is being reviewed and the distance from impact to the stumps is greater than 2.5m then the third umpire passes this information to the on-field official along with: the distance from the wickets of the point of impact with the batsman, the approximate distance from the point of pitching to the point of impact, and whether the ball is predicted to the hit the stumps.
The playing condition goes onto state that: "In such a case the on-field umpire shall have regard to the normal cricketing principles concerning the level of certainty in making his decision as to whether to change his decision."
India v England: MS Dhoni angered by UDRS ruling | Cricket News | ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 | ESPN Cricinfo
As I've posted on this before, I don't like this rule at all. If it's hitting, it's hitting.
Worth noting that sans the UDRS this still would've been not out though.
+ time's fickle card game ~ with you and i +
Yeah, but the UDRS is apparently here to correct such decisions. Make of that what you will.
If I'm not mistaken, this is the first time such a scenario has occurred.
Yeah, so lets just stop using UDRS just by the chance that there will be such a decision in one in every 50 odd matches, even though the decision would stay the same without it. Sticking with the system and slowly improving it would be stupid, obviously.
Middle of middle and you say doubt. Go get some brains on loan Mr Bowden.
7TH ODI Aus VS Eng
3.3Plunkett to Paine, OUT, ah, now, we have a review that could be for both caught and lbw. Paine was walking down the pitch and tried to flick the ball to leg, it's hit him on the pad and lobbed out to cover, where the catch has been taken. So England want to know if it's either lbw or caught, which Paul Reiffel decides against. The review shows that he was hit in line and it was hitting the stumps, with no edge suggested by Hot Spot. And despite being hit so far down the pitch - he's out lbw!
TD Paine lbw b Plunkett 5 (16m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42
Interesting decision, that. The technology said it was out, smashing into middle stump halfway up, but under normal circumstances a batsman would never be given out lbw when he's that far down the pitch. Anyway, here's Ferguson.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
So there are some inconsistencies on how the discretion is being used. These need to be ironed out to make decision making more uniform. Will happen with time I guess. Throwing UDRS out of the window is not a solution obviously. It seems a little contrived though that this had to happen against the team most reluctant to adopt UDRS!
In short, Billy Bowden was being an idiot. But how many times have we said that before?
