    So clearly it was umpire's call?

It either hits him outside the line or it doesn't.
    Not that cut & dried IMHO. Sometimes (as with this one) the whole of the ball didn't pitch in line, but some of it (again, IMHO) did. Not sure if the law specifies about all of the ball or part of it, tbh.

    Something is very wrong if decisions like that are going to be overturned though. Think about what the umpires would think, they wouldn't give anything if that's not out!

    Only part hitting in line should be good enough, seeing as you don't need the whole ball to take the wicket.

    Something that needs to be sorted IMO

    If a guy with all the technology in the world cant say conclusively that it's out, then benefit of the doubt should go the batsman as it has for the last 140 years

    I agree, would be very surprised if slipping one spot down the order would all of a sudden stop Clarke playing shots like the one he did to get out in this match.

    He needs to bat better, no matter where he is in the order.

    Yeah, the UDRS is there to overturn howlers, not marginal calls.

    Disagree, you can't overturn that. Hawk eye showed that a small portion of the ball was hitting in line, that should be enough if the onfield umpire gives it.

    So what would a par score be on this pitch?

    The benefit of the doubt has gone with the umpire for the last 140 years.

    Wasn't conclusively not out. Would have been farcical if that had been overturned.
