    Answer:

    The laws of cricket, give benefit of doubt to the batsman because amateurs, i.e. the rich tended to be batsmen. As most of the clubs were controlled by the rich, they control the laws according to their needs. … Amateurs were rich people who played the game for leisure. Amateurs tended to be batsmen.

    The rich who could afford to play Cricket for pleasure were called amateurs and the poor who played it for a living were called professionals. The social superiority of amateurs was built into the customs of cricket. Amateurs were called Gentlemen.

    Amateurs tended to be batsmen, leaving the energetic, hardworking aspects of the game, like fast bowling, to the professionals. That is partly why the laws of the game always give the benefit of the doubt to the batsman. Cricket is a batsman’s game because its rules were made to favor Gentlemen, who did most of the batting.

    Also, I would like to add that benefit of doubt is still given to Batsman because taking a wicket or getting a batsman out is very valuable. There are just 10 wickets per innings and every wicket is considered important. So, if their is a 50-50 chance, it makes sense to give the batsman not-out.

    There is a risk of being wrong in this, but this risk would be much bigger if the benefit was given to the bowler, because then every wrong decision would be a batsman given out which would impact the game much more.

    Answer:

    Because the bowler will always have a chance to come back after the decision. The batsman won’t. It’s like being given a death sentence without concrete evidence.
