If at any time the umpires jointly agree that the conditions of the field, the weather or the light, or any other circumstances are dangerous or unreasonable, they shall immediately stop play or not allow play to begin or resume.

The decision as to whether the conditions are so bad as to warrant such action should be taken by the umpires alone, after consultation with ICC match referee Ranjan Madugal.
