Not necessarily. First page of the application states, "The matches will be conducted generally as per the NRAI match book 2005 but changes to suit local conditions have been incorporated."sat wrote:The officials cannot decide the outcome of a tie by tossing a coin.. its against the rules...
This mostly concerns the number of shots per match due to time and ammo constrants. Whether there is a rule about tossing a coin, a shoot-off or using the countback system to break a tie, I have no idea.
Deepak was advised to put in a written protest, despite his earlier filmi dialogue of "do whatever you want". Had he done so, rather than make an ass of himself, I would have tried to rectify the mistake, assuming the scores were tied and he had a better countback score, this Sunday.
Hopefully, he will have learnt his lesson.
