Bacher calls for more video help

PORT OF SPAIN, APRIL 9. Former South Africa cricket supremo Ali Bacher believes the time has arrived for umpires to make more use of video replays in an effort to reduce the number of contentious decisions.

Bacher, the former managing director of the United Cricket Board of South Africa, said he does not wish to see the traditional role of the umpire diminished. But he felt the introduction of a consultation process between the standing and television replay umpires would enhance decision-making.

Bacher feels the system currently in operation is limited since it only transfers jurisdiction to the television umpire on referrals in certain instances.

``My proposal seeks to permit the standing umpire to consult the TV Replay umpire whenever he chooses on specific matters aimed at assisting him in arriving at the correct decision,'' Bacher said. Under his proposal if an umpire, in giving an lbw verdict, is uncertain about whether the ball pitched just outside the leg-stump or not, he could ask the TV umpire if it did. — PTI
