    Rule? What rule? You can clearly see the spot there.

    If you hit it, you cant be given out LBW, thats the rule mate!

    The problem is that during this series there has been one truly shocking howler, Hussey in Brisbane plumb lbw and survived.

    Theres been a couple of very thin edges that could have easily been turned over, but haven't.

    Technology just doesn't seem to be working yet for me.

    Would love to have the 9 feed for this, actually. If Lawry was on duty for the Harris decision he'd be good value.

    He wasn't convinced Harris hit it. Greig was adamant.

    why not take the new ball and keep swann on? Harder ball might get more bounce and turn.

    It's over-turned some wrong decisions. It's also let a couple of wrong decisions stand. So it could be improved, but removing it would make things worse as we'd have even more poor decisions than the couple we've had this series. That the number of wrong decisions has been reduced is not a hard concept. It could work better, but not using it at all would be a lot worse.
