The topic describes the issue raised by the Australian Cricketers' Association for the use of Red and Yellow cards to tackle disciplinary problems on field. The proposal of ACA was discussed at the ICC committee meeting and met with opposition.
In the recent cricket coverage, an issue was raised for deciding the use of red and yellow cards in the Gentleman's game - Cricket. Cricket 360 provides the cricket-update on the new decision style proposed in Australia. This year in May the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) proposed to introduce the Football card system in cricket games. One of the domestic cricket clubs in Australia, Gold Coast Cricket club had stated - such style will be tried this season. In another cricket update noted by The Sydney Morning Herald "the system is being approved by Queensland's umpiring coach David Orchard".
Following the cricket update, David Orchard added that he would like to see a red card to be issued to a player for any racist comment and a yellow card for any threat or violence. ACA supported the step and asked the proposals to be followed by other domestic grade cricket in Australia.
