    I am a biased fan, but after almost 3 days of cricket there's been too many bad decisions made by the umpires. First ball of the match Langer was out, and yesterday's Caught behind off Pathan just goes on to proove my point. Bucknor has screwed India on so many occasions and yesterday made 2-3 horrible decisions. What I don't understand is, if cricket is modernizing why can't we use replays for each decision? All american sports have adopted tv replays to help umpires. Cricket umpires hate to be prooven wrong, but it only helps the game progress.

    Yet conveniently ignoring decisions that go the other way.

    How predictable.

    There have been horrible decisions, but they've been on both sides of the spectrum. There's no bias, and posts like this aren't necessary.

    Petty and unnecessary. Thread closed.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
