Cricket-When to come off for rain.

How frustrating it is when play is suspended for rain during a game of cricket. People have payed for a game of cricket and that is what they should get.

I, therefore, propose a new law that states that play should continue until the first spectator opens an umbrella in the ground. That should ensure that umpires cannot interfere until conditions reach a critical state. Hopefully any spectator would be fearful, under threat of serious bodily harm, of opening an umbrella before conditions became ridiculous.

Obviously, the cynical or antagonistic action of spectators allied to one or other of the protagonists should be disallowed for the purposes of the law.
