Bat and Ball gauges for Umpires to check randomly and prevent illegal sizes come in. There shall be "no reference made to the TV Umpire to ascertain if a catch has been made clear, except in the unusual event of "both" on-field Umpires having obscured the view of what had happened. The TV Umpire has then to determine if the batsman has been caught "cleanly" and NOT whether or not, he had actually hit the ball with the bat or touched the gloves.
