After a weekend of watching cricket, it is that time of the year where I’m compelled to write a piece on DRS. There were two incidents that got my cricketing gears grinding. First, In the India-Australia Test, when Michael Clarke was erroneously adjudged, not out on 39, and he went on to score a century. Second, In the West Indies- Zimbabwe ODI, Umpire Peter Nero made the cardinal error of not referring a run out. Ramnaresh Sarwan was a good six inches short of the crease and needless to mention he completed a ton and took West Indies to a series victory.
