Me and a mate were thinking of a way to help umpires with LBW descicions. We thought that a substance could be painted from wicket to wicket on the pitch in a strip straight down the pitch, that would not effect the performance of the pitch. And the umpires were glasses so that only they can see the substance, this will help them see whether the ball pitches outside leg stump, or whether it hits the player outside the line of off-stump.

Most of this was my mates idea because i thought it was a bit far fetched, but you never know.

What do you think?

Nice idea...but wouldnt the glasses affect their view of other things such as run outs,edges,and catches?
Should of thought this through more mate!
I really think the umpires should just use their eyes...human error is part of the fun of cricket
And if they had that...you couldnt say " it was miles down leg" when you get out! Razz

Why dont we have Four Umpires Umpireing a match. SO at every break they change over to keep umps fresh?

We we already have four umpires in a match. The third and fourth umpires are not allowed to swap with the on field umpires, I think.

But I like your idea Noz, perhaps two more umpires to do shifts with the other umpires?

yes that is what i mean

Umpire A and B start in the morning

At lunch Umpire C and D come on

At Tea Umpire A and B come back on

You still have The 5th umpire which is the 3rd ump

Next day starts off with Umpired C and D so they all get time off to relax drink cool down and refresh.
