My New Favorite Cricket Blog

From-The-Rising-Of-The-Sun may not be aptly named (and for a cricket blog not to have a sporting reference is downright criminal), but Jonathan, its writer, has made some great points of late: first, where do standards of dissent stand in the world of instant replay? If a player can ask for a reconsideration, isn’t this, as Jonathan nicely puts it, a “decriminalisation” of dissent? (For a note on why I think we protect umpires from dissent, please see my post about the Umpire as Tragic Figure.)

Second,  Jonathan and I may share skeptical views on instant replay. I like that. Check him out.
