    ICC experiments yet again in international cricket

    Less than two months after it shelved the experiment with substitutes, the ICC is on the verge of experimenting with allowing a limited number of appeals per innings for umpiring decisions which are felt to be incorrect.

    In addition, umpires could be equipped with earpieces to tune in to the stump microphones. Obviously, aside from helping them hear nicks, it will also help them hear the sledging!

    The ideas are novel and welcome. But why trial them in the ICC Champions Trophy? The even more bizarre decision is to implement the proposals for the 2007 World Cup if the trial is successful. Effectively, the ICC is using its own two biggest tournaments as experiment tables.

    The ICC could have easily recommended that all one-day internationals for a period of 'n' months (say n=6) would incorporate these changes, like it did for the rules on substitutes and 'Power Play' overs. The ideal option would have been to have all the one-day playing countries experiment with the appeals process for their domestic one-day tournaments for a season and then move the experiment to the international arena.

    Yet again, the ICC experiments with international cricket! It evidently hasn't learnt its lessons.
