No more dissent

Finally, some *cricketing* news at last...and good one too. If all goes well, the upcoming CT can see a new rule - batsmen getting the chance to appeal against the umpires' decisions against them (any form of dismissal, including LBWs). Since I personally care only about the playing aspect of the game, and not much of a 'human element of umpire' argument backer, I am delighted to hear this. Hope they extend it to tests too, and soon. The report also mentions that fielding side would have similar rights to appeal as well.

Finally, a useful rule coming from the ICC gang after a long long time. long, bullying Bucknor ;-)
