But don't expect any sympathy from Ponting. What a fiasco:
THE reason for Ricky Ponting's anger over his confusing dismissal at Lord's has been revealed.
By the time Ponting had reached the dressing room it was clear the ball had come off his pad, but the assumption was that Llong did not have the authority to overturn the decision.
Rule 3.2.3 governing clean catches reads, in part: "The third umpire has to determine whether the batsman has been caught. But when reviewing the television replay(s), if it is clear to the third umpire that the batsman did not hit the ball, he shall indicate that the batsman is not out."
There would have been a tasty rumpus had Strauss appealed for caught, Ponting was given out caught, Ponting challenged, Ponting was given not out caught, Anderson challenged, Ponting was given out LB.
Is there double jeopardy?
