ICC reduces unsuccessful appeals to two.

Umpire decision review system

The ICC has decided to reduce the number of unsuccessful appeals by one. Hence, teams will be permitted only two unsuccessful appeals in the four test series between England and the West Indies.

According to ICC Chief Haroon Lorgat, “That is why we have made this refinement to it. It has become clear during the trial so far that three unsuccessful reviews per innings is too many as there is potential there for frivolous or unnecessary reviews to be made by one side or the other”.
