thank you.

Tweaking benefit of the doubt

What I am suggesting is not about amending the law- yes if that can be done then it is the best, however what I have suggested in the article is regarding tweaking the practice of solely favouring the batters in every ambiguous situation. To summarize, it is a suggestion to umpires to upgrade their decision making criteria while all the constraints enforced by the rules and regulations are present.

I agree to your point of uniformity in a decision. Currently, the umpire’s call is blatantly controversial. However, it is still being practiced.

Thank you.

Tweaking benefit of the doubt

Yes there is always uncertainty even with the use of technology like DRS. And in uncertain conditions the batsman has always been given advantage. However, recently the rules have changed quite drastically favouring the batters disproportionately, therefore requiring some change of practices and traditions like BOTD to keep the balance of the battle intact.
