    It's like the ridiculous burden of proof the mods on here require before they ban what is, to everyone watching, an obvious multi.

    I'd be amused to know when you've seen me umpire?

    With DRS, people are simply assuming that the umps are total incompetents and also questioning the technology
    The fact that you have conspiracy theories about hawkeye doesn't mean it failed to correct a decision.

    Consider how many of these would have been out anyway even with no DRS, and then consider how many decisions have been correctly overturned in this series, and it's still a clear improvement.

    As for the ones it has clearly got wrong - it's like any system. Misuse it and it won't work very well, and in this series it has been misused. This isn't a problem with it that is impossible to overcome.

    I don't think the DRS is perfect. For starters the umpire's call rubbish on LBWs needs to be ****ed off, and it has the wrong overall objective. Its objective should be for the third umpire to make what he thinks is the right decision, as opposed to giving the benefit of the doubt to the on-field decision.

    With all this said, from a point of view of purely looking at the amount of correct decisions, DRS even as it is now is still streets ahead of no DRS.

    Anyone think this pitch is occasionally a little two paced? Seen a few blokes getting through their shots a bit soon on the odd occasion. By no means even a remotely poor wicket, but I get the feeling it isn't quite as true paced as it seemed at first blush.

    Ok, probably the time to say that we should take discussion of UDRS/the decision to the other thread and leave this one for the cricket.

    Yeah. I'm assuming it's because of those bare patches.

    Yeah, few deliveries have 'stuck' in the wicket and come onto the bat slower than the batsman expect. Twatto got a couple of them early on.

    Not sure of serious, but I've not really seen it from those areas, more an occasional thing.
