    I've just sat down to watch the test. That was one of the worst cricket umpiring decisions I have ever seen. KRudd

    That's such a joke. This series really needs third umpires that aren't ****ing idiots.

    See, what ****s me is the poor **** could lose his international career over a decision like that.

    Khawaja I mean, not the third umpire who should lose his career over it.

    That's up there with the Andy Bichel (?) to Kallis decision back in around 2002 as completely ridiculous caught behinds.

    Specialist third umpires needed; these on-field ****s clearly can't use technology at all.

    Umpire of the year. The same umpire of the year who seems to make at least one or two shockers per game.

    Indeed. DRS did its job perfectly. It's just the severly mentally handicapped sorry excuse of a 3rd umpire called Kumar Dharmasena

    Somebody punch him in the face please! Warner is back, right?

    All the other over ruled snicks so far in this series have actually been shown to be good decisions. That on the other hand was probably the worst umpiring decision ever given the technology and time available to the 3rd ****wi...I mean umpire..

    Kumar Dharmesena has surely lost his place on the elite panel?

    I mean, the most basic form of technology (a replay) showed that was clearly not-out i dont think snicko would have changed the 3rd umps mind

    It depends what you decide the argument is though. That decision just now isn't an advertisement for not having DRS at all because the standing umpire gave it out originally anyway, but it's another one for the "it could be working a lot better and needs some significant changes" camp.

    Do you actually know how the BCCI works. All they need is smoke for calling it fire.
