Dean Jones suggests 'three umpire-formula' for 'ensuring fairness' in cricket

Sydney, Dec 14 : Former cricketer Dean Jones has said that it is time the ICC followed the Australian Football League's example and introduced three umpires on the ground.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Jones said that the game today has become so quick the two umpires standing cannot keep up.

It seems to take an eternity and the moment is lost when players have their celebrations interrupted, waiting on the third umpire call, Jones added.

The third umpire can stand wide enough on the off side to a right-hand bowler bowling over the wicket to judge if he has overstepped, Jones suggested.
