Default TV umpires get enhanced roles for WC

TV umpires get enhanced roles for WC

Existing powers of television umpires are likely to be enhanced by rules and regulations specifically adopted for the upcoming World Cup.

Under the new regulations, the TV umpire can turn down an appeal for caught behind if the replays show there was no contact between bat and ball. The relevant portion about the clause over clean catches states: "The third umpire has to determine whether the batsman has been caught. However, when reviewing TV replay(s) if it is clear to the third umpire that the batsman did not hit the ball, he shall indicate that the batsman is not out."

This applies to decisions on whether a catch was taken from a bump ball or not.

Other regulations for the tournament include a provision for relocating matches in case of a dangerous pitch, continuing a match under a light drizzle in certain situations, bowl-outs to break a tie, and empowering the match referee to suggest suspension of play citing security concerns. Under earlier rules, umpires could only abandon a match if the pitch became dangerous for play.

I think LBW rules would be far more harder to implement (given some authority to 3rd umpire). seita korle umpire ra tibro protibad korbe mone hoi. something like, taile ar umpirer dorkar ki. jai hok, very good step for cricket.

Not that this is a bad idea....But it sort of negates the need of umpires on the field...
^True dat^

Good for Bangladesh, because most of the times decisions go against us for some reason.
