    On the plus side for Oz, Clarke's in on a belter of a pitch.

    Absolutely dire. Didn't look like he hit it live or on any replay.

    That truely is one of the worst decisions of all-time. There've been some shockers in the history of the game, but given all the technology (other than snicko), and they still can't see something as obvious as Khawaja missing that. Pathetic. This is just fuelling BCCI's decision not to accept UDRS. If done correctly it'd help the game, but been some real weird decisions in this series.

    Yeah, that's not DRS at fault here. The tech was surely enough to overturn it. I'm stunned, that's unable to be explained in terms in which you're not asking some questions about the allegiances of the 3rd umpire.

    Nah it is. Those of us who support it used to accuse detractors of flatearthism. We can't deny reality and say this is working.

    Have to remember that without DRS it would've been out anyway. DRS hasn't actually changed the match with a bad decision. It's just sad that it hasn't overturned one that should've been.

    I am willing to accept that that the DRS is not perfect, and that sometimes decisions do not always go our way. But that was ABSOLUTELY DISGRACEFUL. I hope some kind of action is taken against somebody, because that is an absolute garbage decision.

    Anyone agree now that DRS needs to go until they can instill some common sense in the ****wit 3rd umpires???

    Absolute ****ing travesty........no joy in getting that wicket at all.

    No it isn't. The issue here is bad umpiring.

    Why the **** are people bitching about the DRS? When you've got a dickhead 3rd umpire, you can't do anything about it.

    Tbh Bell should ha been not out against India in CT as well. I hate 3rd umpires. **** them all.
