The recent meeting of the world's governing cricket body the ICB has proposed that Sharia law be used in borderline leg before wicket decisions.
A spokesman stated 'it is our intention to remove the pressure from umpires and to introduce the option for the third umpire to use Sharia law to resolve any disputes'
The Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Beard announced that he welcomed the decision. More traditionalists, however, warned that Christianity based ethics should be utilised before the batsman abandons his occupation of the crease and returns to the pavilion.
This development serves to exemplify the growing decisions in cricket.
A spokesman for the BNP stated, 'we cannot have these others dictating whether the nightwatchman is out based on some ideology which conflicts with the ethos of the british village green'.
He added, 'we invented the game and we are still crap at it.'
