Gavaskar-headed ICC committee to ponder over hectic cricket schedule Re-issue

The much-debated issue of the volume of cricket is likely to dominate the two-day meeting of the newly constituted ICC Cricket Committee, which begins here today.

Dubai, May 30 : The much-debated issue of the volume of cricket is likely to dominate the two-day meeting of the newly constituted ICC Cricket Committee, which begins here today.

Besides this, ball tampering, ODI playing conditions, the use of glue on pitches, and referrals to the TV umpire will also figure in the meeting, which will be chaired by former India captain and Cricket Committee head Sunil Gavaskar.

The committee includes former Australia captain Mark Taylor, Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene, ex-West Indies fast bowler Michael Holding, Umpire of the Year Simon Taufel, chief ICC match referee and former Sri Lanka captain Ranjan Madugalle, former Scotland captain Craig Wright, ex-Australia all-rounder Tom Moody, and former Australia off-spinner and the Chief Executive Officer of the Federation of International Cricketers' Associations (FICA), Tim May.

The committee will consider the amount of international cricket being played and the effect on the standard and quality of cricket.

Any recommendations made by the ICC Cricket Committee then go forward to the Chief Executives' Committee for approval. If it approves the recommendations, then the decisions can be ratified at the ICC Board meeting with both meetings set for London in June.

A range of issues are to be discussed by the committee on the ODI playing conditions, including power-plays; over-rates; ball changes; a free-hit for batsmen following a front-foot no-ball; and the size of boundaries.

Use of glue pitches will also discussed following its use in the UK, New Zealand and India. The committee has been asked to discuss the principle of using adhesives in the preparation of pitches. It has also been asked to determine a policy concerning its use for international matches.

On referrals to TV umpire, the committee will discuss whether to amend the current regulations, which allow on-field umpires to consult with the TV officials on the subject of clean catches only if they are unsighted.

Any such amendment would allow the on-field umpires to consult with the TV umpire on decisions relating to any such catches they were unsure about and also allow the TV umpire to initiate contact.

The committee will also be asked to consider whether it should recommend trialing the use of player appeals to the TV umpire at this year's ICC Twenty20 World Championships if such a system, currently being trialed in UK domestic one-day cricket, proves successful.
