England to use Umpire Appeals for the first time

October 15, 2008 at 12:02 pm Leave a comment

The England tour of the West Indies has been identified by the ICC as one of 3 test series to trial the review system next year. The review system allows batsmen and bowlers to challenge a umpire decision. Both teams are only allowed 3 appeals per innings, with a successful appeal meaning that they maintain that appeal. The appeals will be sent to a television umpire who tells his on field colleague his decision.

The review system was originally planned to take place during the England vs South Africa test series but was cancelled. It was used successfully in a recent Sri Lanka vs India test series, but mad mixed opinions between players, coaches and the media.

The other test series to trial the system will be, New Zealand vs West Indies, India vs Pakistan and South Africa vs Australia.
