It is still early days for the referral system.
Do you think that in a few years time, when people expect a referral, these moments will still generate the same excitement ?
There's nothing better than seeing a bowler charge in, trap a batsmen on the pads, and get that immediate result with the deathly finger rising.

Except when it's wrong of course

Suck it up. (unless its against straya - then its biased)
I wouldn't mind a system by which the third umpire has discretion to call a player back before he has crossed the boundary. Leaving it in the hands of the umpires will just be disastrous. Why wouldn't they just refer every decision then?
I think it added because everyone knew it was deserved without a shadow of a doubt. However Mark Nicholas detracted from it with his "wait...wait" bit.
Rest In Peace Craigos
I really enjoyed Tubby's calling of it. He was genuinely excited. Then suddenly Nicholas just barged in with his usual crap.
Yeah but looked so plumb i didn't think it would miss the stumps...
Plus Dar is a beast from the east. Both teams should avoid reviewing his decisions..most of the time anyways unless they are sure 100% he made mistake...
Be VERY AFRIDI!!
This is a bit late but I was in the crowd and the referral added. Everyone went crazy and then it might have been for nothing... so they went insane when it was confirmed.
Different reactions between TV viewers and the ones at the ground it seems.
