CA review proposing radical rule change


//

Cricket Australia has proposed a radical change in its cultural review, proposing that umpires be allowed to sin bin players for poor behaviour in domestic and international matches.

The recommendation was one of 42 handed down as a part of a widespread report in order to change the culture surrounding the Australian team following the ill-fated tour of South Africa in March.

As per the recommendation, umpires would be "empowered to exclude players from the field of play, for set periods of time and with immediate effect" for:

- Continuous abusive sledging (after one warning)

- Deliberate breaches of the Laws of Cricket, or

- Deliberate conduct inconsistent with the Spirit of Cricket (after one formal warning).

While Cricket Australia has the power over introducing the radical change into domestic competitions such as the Sheffield Shield, it would be a struggle to introduce the new law to the international arena, with the ICC in charge of the international cricket regulations.

"This recommendation is under consideration and there are some challenges to implementation, such as CA not being responsible for, or in control of International Cricket, and the potential impact on the official status of matches in Australia (e.g. first-class cricket)," CA said.

"CA will consult with relevant stakeholders – including the ACA, umpires and State and Territory Cricket Associations".

The recommendation to sin bin players was accompanied by a separate recommendation which stated that an umpire's formal assessment of sportsmanship of all grade, state and national teams "be published along with the name of any player whose conduct the Umpires deem to have been exemplary."

Cricket Australia again responded to the recommendation saying that there were "challenges to implementation" with regards to controlling international cricket regulations.
