BCCI to try Umpire decision review system
An umpire decision review system will be trialled during India's three-Test series against Sri Lanka, which would entitle a player to request the on-field match officials to reconsider their decision.
BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah said the cricket board has agreed to the trial of the system in the Test series starting July 23.
Under the proposal, a player may request the review of any decision taken by the on-field umpires concerning every dismissal with the exception of 'Timed Out'.
The review-seeking player would have to make a 'T' sign with both forearms at head height.
For reviews concerning potential dismissals, he should then indicate 'Out' by raising his finger above his head or indicate 'Not Out' by crossing his hands in a horizontal position side to side in front and above his waist three times.
"Where the decision is a reversal of the on-field umpire's previous call, he should make the 'revoke last signal' indication immediately prior to the above," the BCCI said in a statement.
