Brisbane: The Australian team wants a review of the bad light rule after early stumps were called in apparently reasonable conditions on the first two days of their ongoing Test against New Zealand due on plea of bad light.
A similar incident happened in their Johannesburg Test against South Africa. Hours were lost and a day's play was abandoned when a reading was taken in shadow at one end of the pitch.
Under new playing conditions it is up to the officials to decide whether the light is unsafe. In the past, the players were offered a choice but gamesmanship and time wasting resulted in the decision being taken from them.
