    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Yeah, i think all the headlines about "Aussie fume over umpire error" are very misleading. They naturally reacted badly in the immediate aftermath, but there has been very little "fuming" from that point. Frankly i think the media are assuming they are fuming because everyone knows with roles reversed the English, true to hypocritical form, would have been going on about it for months.

    Of course Dar should have asked himself how it was possible that Haddin was so far away from taking the ball cleanly, but maybe he just rates his ability with the gloves that lowly

    Nah we should ban Clarke for dissent. With immediate effect.

    That would have been a better example for me to use! My clip was a bit more outrageous though

    I believe we 'sought clarification'. A tad different anyway and you know it.

    I must say, the Bell LBW review was one of two times I've been genuinely shocked to see the ball missing leg stump. The other was when Tendulkar reviewed the Saeed Ajmal lbw in the 2011 WC. looked absolutely plumb, I guess the camera must have been positioned slightly towards long on rather than being directly behind the stumps.

    He was actually down the pitch a bit, and the ball had swung in a long way. Understandable in hindsight that it's missing leg but it looked awful live.

    I think for the most part the discussion about it has been pretty measured tbf, and for the most part kept in this thread rather than the match one, which is a good thing.

    Read the first two comments buddy.

    edit: actually cricinfo's commentary suggests the two commenters are talking out their arse

    on UDRS... now a team is given 8 reviews in total restricted to 2 per inngs ..why don't they change it to 5 per match irrespective of the inngs ..i dont think any team has used up all 8 in a match could be wrong but even if it did would have been in a handful of matches
