The International Cricket Council (ICC) has taken an important decision ahead of the final match of the World Test Championship. The ICC overturned the controversial soft signal before the final match between India and Australia. So this decision will no longer be seen in cricket.
The decision was said to have been taken in a meeting chaired by ICC Cricket Committee Chairman Saurabh Ganguly. Many cricketers have objected to this decision for some time now. Therefore, experts were saying that this decision can be cancelled. Finally, ICC has taken steps in this regard and canceled this decision. It will be implemented from the final match of the World Test Championship. The idea of this has been given to both the teams.
what is the rule
Soft signal decisions are a matter at the discretion of the completion judges. A third umpire is often used to check whether a catch has been completed. However, at that time, it is seen what the first decision has been given by the field umpire. If there is no evidence for the third umpire to judge whether the catch is correct or not, a soft signal means the decision by the field umpire becomes important.
Such a decision was taken against Suryakumar Yadav in the 2021 T20 series between India and England. The third umpire had no evidence as to whether the catch taken by David Malan was fair or not. At that time, the decision of the field umpire was upheld. In addition, Virat Kohli has also been a victim of this decision many times.
