4.4 Judgement of LBW

You must successfully demonstrate:

A high degree of accuracy in judging LBWs

Read through the PowerPoint presentation opposite (The keys to preparing for a good LBW decision).

Over 60% of all appeals are for LBW: this is therefore an important part of your decision making match performance.

You need to be ready to make a decision (LBW) – from the first ball (see Video 416, review first ball of innings opposite).

Should there be a player review for LBW, it is expected that the on field umpire will give his reasons for his decision or ask for an aspect to be checked if he was unsure about any element.

As 3rd umpire you have to use effective communication skills, knowledge and understanding of technology tools, and appropriate replay angles to search for conclusive evidence that the original decision was incorrect. If there is no conclusive evidence, then the original on field decision should stand.
