    Because obviously the only decisions umpires ever make go to DRS.

    its interesting that if the umpire gives an lbw not out on the basis of an edge but thinks it's smashing the stumps, then there is no edge, the batsmen retains the 'umpires call advantage.'
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Whats happens in this case:

    -Rogers given out caught behind.
    -Decides to review.
    -He isn't out caught behind, but is out lbw.

    Do Aust lose a review?

    Bairstow might save more runs in the field than he scores with the bat.

    That's the point, they shouldn't check the LBW in the first instance unless it is specifically reviewed by the bowling team.

    No. Aleem Dar didn't do anything really wrong here, it's his discretion. Hill was in the wrong. What I'm saying is neither are particularly good umpires.

    The decision made there is still relating to the LBW though, not caught behind.

    Wouldn't mind seeing it revised to say a third or a quarter of the ball rather than the current half. Surely it can't be that inaccurate?

    I was exaggerating, but if you include all the false negatives and false positives, it would be a LOT of errors

    Appeals cover all dismissals tho, don't they?

    Thread's taken a disturbing "UDRS for wuckfits" turn.

    Or you could be honest and say that your following the same standards they did.
