MUMBAI, Jul 10 Former West Indies captain Sir Richie Richardson will hear the two captains' concern on ball tampering laws, it is learnt here.
Incidentally, both, South Africa's captain Faf du Plessis and Sri Lanka's Chandimal were fined for the same offence at different time.
According to the highly placed sources in ICC, the 56-year-old former right handed batsman Richardson will officiate as a match referee for the two Test series beginning in Galle on July 12 will address both the captains and clarify their doubts on what substances players can have and whether candy is permissible in mouth while on field of play.
The captains, if necessary, will also be guided by the field umpires.
The two Australian umpires Paul Reiffel and Rod Tucker, along with Englishman Nigel Llong, will officiate in both the Test matches as field and TV umpires.
The match referee and the umpires are set to follow the detailed judgement copy by Judicial Commissioner Michael Beloff QC, who in his 16-page report on Chandimal's appeal had drawn attention to the following clause : " polish the ball on his clothing provided that no artificial
substance is used and that such polishing wastes no time".
Same lawyers :In the meantime, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board's same bunch of lawyers (Chandak Jayasundere, President’s Counsel and Pulasthi Rupasinha, Attorney-at-Law ) who represented Chandimal's case attended the 2nd ICC hearing on charges for their (captain, coach and manager) involvement in the Sri Lanka cricket team’s refusal to take to the field in St Lucia Test which caused a two-hour delay in the start of play.
This action was alleged to amount to a serious breach of the Laws of cricket and to be contrary to the spirit of the game.
