Cricket for India

 

The International Cricket Council is going to experiment with earpieces for the men in white coat during the forthcoming Champions Trophy in England in the month of September . It will help them to pick up audio from the stump microphone so as to judge them to hear bats snicking deliveries . With the ICC bringing about constant changes so as to make effective use of the technologies available at hand , it is indeed interesting to peep into details of similar metamorphosis which took place in international cricket over the last decade

*No ball and match referee : The opening test match between India and Australia at the Woolloongabba Stadium in Brisbane in 1991-92 season , witnessed Manoj Prabhakar becoming the first bowler to be no-balled under new ICC legislation prohibating more than one bouncer at each batsman in the same over . This was also the first test match to be played under the jurisdiction of a referee appointed from the ICC panel .former England captain Mike Smith being the first to hold this office .

*Third umpire : England's Dicky Bird , the first umpire to appear under National Grid's sponsorship , equalled Frank Chester's record by officiating in his 48th test during India-Zimbabwe one-off test match at Harare during 1992-93 season . The two local umpires - K.Kanjee and Ian Robinson - stood on alternate days during five-day match .

*First third umpire verdict : The opening test match between India and South Africa at Durban during 1992-93 season , was the first in which television replays monitored by a third umpire off the field were called upon to adjudicate in line decisions . Sachin Tendulkar becoming the system's first victim . However , in the very next match at Johannesburg , Jonty Rhodes , when on 28 and then eventually making 91 , was fortunate to escape being run out when West Indies' Steve Bucknor refused to call for the third umpire verdict on a replay which showed him to be out by at least six inches .

*Lbw decision by the third umpire : The early stages of the ICC Champions Trophy in Colombo in 2002 were dominated by technology , as Pakistan's Shoaib Malik became the first victim of an lbw decision deferred to the third umpire . The frequent requests for arbitration did slow the game down , but it was worth it when glaring gaffes were avoided . The experiment largely worked properly . However , after the tournament , the ICC announced that the use of technology would not be extended : lbw decisions would revert to being a matter solely for the on-field umpire . With technology playing such an important role - in judging run outs , stumpings , clean catches , boundary and over boundary runs , hit - wickets - whenever referred by the men in the middle to the third umpire who is equipped with all gazets at his disposals , it now remains to be seen what more changes are incorporated in the armoury of umpires .
