Worst LBW decision ever

A culmination of circumstance appears to be effecting "match in play" umpiring decisions. The DRS, decision review system which was first introduced in Test Cricket in 2008 India v Sri Lanka, is there for the sole purpose of testing controversial decisions by Umpires and deciding whether the player is out or not

We currently have a number of items of items of Cricket Memorabilia, signed team sheets and signed cricket bats which have also been signed by the Umpires, Frank Chester Herbert George Baldwin in the 1948 4th test England v Australia at Headingley (AUS won by 7 wickets resulting in a 3-0 series win) a very fine example is a fully signed cricket bat in good condition with legible signatures

Today bad light and weather decisions are often contradictory as are some fine catches taken low in the infield which are now decided upon by the 3rd umpire. A recent decision giving  Mahela Jayawardene the benefit on his first delivery was seen to be incorrect and proved to be game changing, camera angles in these circumstances can be misleading, yet are regarded as the final word

The Ladies second semi final T20 England v South Africa takes place at Dhaka on Friday, which will be watched with interest Cricket Collectables hope to add to their Ladies memorabilia with some match signed cricket bats and teamsheets

Lydia Greenway looks a fair bet at 9/2 to make the most runs!!!
