Ottayan writes that Tim Nielsen has some doubts about the new changes to the laws. One big idea is that up to three decisions per innings can be appealed to the third umpire. Mohan outlines some of the proposals coming out of the ICC's cricket committee. On the appeals in particular:
The ICC Cricket Committee recommended further that Hawkeye could be
used only to determine the path of the ball up to the point that it
struck the batsman. A wise decision in my view. The questions that
could be addressed through this could be, for example, “Did it strike in line?” (for off stump LBWs), “Did the ball pitch outside leg?” (for leg stump LBWs), and “Was the impact too high on the pads?”, rather than, “Would the ball have gone on to hit the stumps?”
