    Doesn't make too much difference.

    Most the English can't figure out how to use them anyway.

    Really though, no matter how bad the umpiring was, you can't lose by an innings and 99 and blame the umpiring. Rudi is lucky the game was by no means close because both sides had very rough decisions go against them.
    That said, had the 2 been given, there's no way Australia would've had a lead big enough to win by an innings.

    Still what goes around comes around and I'm sure some day in future England will get the benefit of a couple of calls like that.

    They got evened out from 2005, we had a few crucial desicions go our way that could have lost us the series had they gone otherwise.
