ICC wont change bails despite wicket problems

ICC World Cup 2019: Glenn Maxwell gives reason for David Warner’s slow knock against India ICC won't change bails after World Cup wicket problems
Sidney Guerrero | 13 June, 2019, 18:32

So wooden bails sometimes don't come off. The lights come on only when both spigots (ends of the bails) lose contact with the stumps.

"In this context it is important to also consider that with the Zing wicket system the third umpire can determine definitively from the footage in which frame the bail is dislodged, meaning, with run-outs and stumpings, the correct decision is always made, and batsmen dismissed when they should be". The ball hits the stump and the lights don't come on, or the lights come on and the bail comes back on to the stump. In David Warner's case, the lights did not come on, let alone a bail being dislodged from its perch, despite the ball striking the wickets quite hard.

India captain Virat Kohli and Australia skipper Aaron Finch joined forces to condemn the "unfair" bail controversy that threatens to ruin the ongoing World Cup. At the 2016 World T20, 2017 Champions Trophy and in the women's World Cup the same year, the same was used. The Zing bails did not dislodge and the batsman continued during the high-voltage game between India and Australia at The Oval on Sunday. But the boys downland (from Sussex) followed a different plan (to the Stool, as a tree stump was called).

The teams and captains are not happy with the frequency of bails remaining where they are despite the ball hitting the stumps.

But the national skipper missed Tuesday night's qualifier against Belgium - a tie Scotland lost 3-0 - due to a hamstring injury. In contrast to his club form, the former Toffee has scored seven goals in his last six appearances for Belgium .

The "stubborn" zing bails are in the news for the wrong reasons again. Nothing has changed with the Zing system for years. "They have been used in all ICC events since the 2015 Men's Cricket World Cup and in a range of domestic events", ICC added. This means they've been used in more than 1000 games. The zing illuminates within 1/1000th of a second when the connection between the bails and the stumps is being made. Or are the bails heavier than their wooden predecessors? The makers of the bails don't understand the glitches, either. All of us enthusiastically participated in this idea along with the budding cricketers of our school and the teachers who taught him", shares Principal Amita Saxena, who adds, "It was a very emotional moment for us to send the soil of the school where Virat grew up as it brings back memories of the time when he first acquired his skills as a cricketer.

Now, while that may or may not happen anytime soon, it is possible for the ICC to change the playing conditions.

One is not sure if that was a serious suggestion, but what is clear is that the Zing bails surely have lost some of their sparkle here in the World Cup.

Five times in the 14 matches held so far, the bails - which glow when hit - haven't fallen even when the stumps have been struck. "It is the same for all 10 teams across all 48 games", a source in the ICC told TOI on Monday.
