    There's one.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Pietersen clearly out LBW of Hilfenhaus not given by Doctrove. 3rd session day 1.

    Horrible appeal by Hilfenhaus mind you. Not convincing at all.

    2-0 to England currently, by my score. Strauss looked gone earlier & KP certainly was there, although Haddin appealing for the catch probably didn't help Hilfenhaus's cause much.

    It's pathetic when you can highlight an umpire beforehand and cringe (Doctrove, when I saw him listed) and then straight away you are reminded why.

    An error, but a forgivable one.

    Rewound Sky+ after seeing the replays, and what is obvious after watching the replay is not obvious watching it live. There's enough doubt watching it live for the umpire's decision to be an understandable, if still ultimately wrong one.

    Surely it made it easier for Doctrove? If he reckons he hit it he's out caught behind, if he reckons there was no bat then it is pretty stone dead.

    Either way its a disgraceful decision.

    Fair point, tbh. Pretty hard to excuse.

    Think the point is that the referral system is going to be in place, so its an interesting study to see how such a system may have affected the series.

    Not as pathetic as the umpires that continuously make them. They deserve to be called on their direness.

    Missed the part where the thread is about how much umpire errors cost.

    Well, Pasag's opening post says 'impact on the series'.

    Obviously won't be able to tell until after the test match though.
