No Sharia Law for Cricket

London: The ICC has rejected a call from Pakistan to implement Sharia Law for Test Cricket. The proposal, which would have meant a committee of clerics adjudicating on LBW and run out decisions was labelled “impractical” by Australian and New Zealand cricket officials. Part of the proposal where a batsman could be out if the bowler said, “I dismiss you! I dismiss you! I dismiss you!” (3 times) was considered to give the fielding side too much power. However the biggest stumbling block came when India declared it would “rain down nuclear death” on Pakistan if any Indian players had their hands severed for cheating or no-balling.
