LBW appeal against Ian Bell on 27 February in India-England WC match


Latest LBW Rules formed by the ICC: 


A batsman is given LBW out to ensure that he should not protect the stumps by stopping the ball with the help of pads or any part of body rather than hitting the ball with his bat. 
A batsman will be given LBW out under the following conditions: 
  1.  ball should be a genuine ball bowled correctly. It should not be a ‘no ball’.
  2. The ball must miss the bat or gloves of the batsman.
  3. The ball must hit any part of the batsman's person (except Hands / gloves) and not only his ‘legs’.   
  4. The ball must hit the batsman inline that is in the rectangular stripe between the two wickets. 
  5. The ball must be travelling in a trajectory that is expected to hit the stumps, if it would not have been intercepted by the batsman’s body.
The latest condition added: 
  1. The umpires are not obliged to follow the normal rules for using Hawkeye reviews to determine whether the batsman is out or not In case of a LBW not out decision where the distance between point of impact and the stumps is greater than 250 cm. Or the distance between point of pitching and point of impact with the pad is less than 40cm, The umpires shall have their own discretion in determining whether or not to overrule their original not out decision.
