IPL 2022: Jayawardena wants a greater communication between the on-field umpires and third umpires

Jayawardena, who was watching the episode unfold now wants this rule to be tweaked and expressed greater communication between the umpires.

“It is something going forward that I think we need to look at,” Jayawardena told Sanjana Ganesan on The ICC Review.

“Is there an option for the third umpire to look at these things and inform the main umpires that it is a delivery that should be checked?

Clause 21.5 of the ICC Playing Conditions states “The third umpire shall review television replays of the bowler’s front foot landing and, if he/she is satisfied that any of these three conditions have not been met, he/she shall immediately advise the bowler’s end umpire who shall in turn immediately call and signal No ball.”

The rule clearly states the third umpire not be involved to check on those things. He also mentioned it was good to see Amre entering the field, and that it gives chance to review the rule.

“The spirit of the game and to see things moving forward, it is never an option for a player or a coach to come on to the field,” Jayawardena said.

“We (coaches) have the ability to come on to the field during the strategic time out at the IPL and that should be the only time that coaches or anyone else should be allowed (on the field).”
