The proposed umpire review system will be trialled during India's three-Test series against Sri Lanka, beginning next month, the Indian board has said. Originally set to feature for the first time during South Africa's upcoming series against England, it was shelved after both boards failed to reach an agreement (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/engvrsa/content/story/353934.html) on the details.

The ICC Board, had, in March, approved the trial of the review system during a Test series in the current cricket calendar. It will now have to approve its Cricket Committee's recommendations before the Sri Lanka- India series begins. The main elements are:

Umpires should still be permitted to refer line decisions or boundaries to the third umpire as normal without a player requesting him to refer that decision"
The players should be permitted to ask the on-field umpire to review any aspect of any other decision in consultation with the third umpire
The process should take the form and order of: on-field umpire gives his decision; affected batsman or fielding side's captain asks the umpire to review that decision; the on-field umpire(s) and third umpire consult; the on-field umpire gives his final decision
The committee recommended that Hawk-Eye technology could be used by the third umpire but only for the purposes of determining the actual path of the ball up until the point that it struck the batsman and not the predictor function of the technology
The BCCI press release said the following technology could be used by the third umpire while considering the review request:
Slow motion replays from all available cameras
Super slow motion replays from the cameras positioned at either end of the ground
Ultra motion camera replays from the cameras positioned at either end of the ground
Sound from the stump microphones with the replays at normal speed and slow motion
Hawk-Eye for ball tracking purposes only (not for predicting the potential future trajectory of the ball)http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/ci-icc/content/current/story/354984.html

if this goes thru..hopefully there will no more idiotic decisions by moron umprie like asoka de silva..

It's already being used in the english county and in ICL. I like it. It will be a huge bonus for the captains in all versions but particularly in 20/20 because so much money is being involved nowadays. ICC realized that it cannot allow umpire's mistake to determine the fate of a game or affect it adversely.

I think there will be a limitation on the number of challenges, as it is in Tennis. in ICL they also had a limitation of max 03 challenges. So there will still be morons who will make mistakes and the teams will not have a chance to challenge. This will make the game interesting but, won't eliminate erors to a great extent.

infact the TV umpire (3rd Ump) and the match referree who are watching on TV, should also be given the right to advise the umpires on the field & overturn decisions if they were wrong, even without being referred to them. Why shouldn't the umpires work in a team to get things right.

Great point. In NFL this rule already exists. In last two minutes of 2nd and 4th quarter all plays are reviewed in the booth and there is no need for the coaches to challenge plays.
