Bring on Hawk-Eye for cricket or revert to a back-foot rule or something. The likely high percentage of missed no-balls means this sort of stuff is common-place and either should be eradicated completely or just accepted as a 'win some, lose some' thing.
    And the former is surely the irrepressably better idea.
    When it's finally introduced I bet we'll be asking ourselves how the hell it took so obscenely long to get it done - how many missed no-balls could have been called for every run-out or stumping spotted? No-balls should have been the first thing technology sorted-out.
    It's as belief-defying as the length of time it took such an obvious change as the ruling on the run-scoring with regard no-balls\wides.
    How it took 222 years or whatever it was for that to come into place is indicative of that wonderful slow-progressor that is cricket.

    Not to mention, of course, the total absurdity that is Vettori and Warne bowling no-balls off 4 or 5 paces.
    All the more reason to cut-out both things as soon as possible.

    no balls called electronically may also allow umpires to concentrate more on the point where the ball is around the pad/bat and therefore make better decisions on lbw and catches.

    Watching it I was under the impression that it was brought up as a bit of a joke.....certainly nothing to get too worked up about anyway.

    I wonder why it took so long to be found. They manage to pick missed no-balls when the occasion is of a lesser scale, but missed this one. Oh well.

    It is time to bring on technology to call front foot no balls, cus crap umpires like D.Hair need all the help they can get. Not surprising that he was the umpire that missed the no-ball, i'm sure he missed allot more things in his umpiring career. U probably find that he missed something when Lara got his to World Records. Worst umpire who has ever umpired a Test in my opinion.

    I dont think technology should be used for that, allow for some natural errors that could occur, people have grown up adhering to the umpires ruling. In that instance, the umpire called it as he saw it.

    I think technology should be used to adjudicate on catches, stumpings, runouts, etc, but not on no balls.

    IMO Darrell Hair is not a good umpire.

    Yeah but if you're doing the technology thing for all bar one aspect of the game, you're not allowing for 'natural errors' at all but are, statistically speaking, introducing bias. What's the point of that?

    Nope, technology all the way or not at all. This half-arsed acceptance of technology is HURTING the game because, as I said, bias is logically introduced if some phenomena are judged perfectly whereas others are left to 'human error'. All I hear when technological solutions are proposed are anachronistic and sentimental arguments. There's NO good reason why technology shouldn't be introduced in every facet of the game where it will be accurate and consistent and more accurate than human umpires.

    Oh come on, it was clearly meant to be funny, nobody was calling for the umpire's head or anything. If they were whinging about it, granted it's a bit uncalled for, but showing the footage and having a laugh about it seemed fairly harmless to me.

    Dont worry about it, some people take themselves far to serious and dont know how to have a laugh. Normal people saw the joke and had a laugh.

    It was one of the funniest thing that i have seen in a while. Warne face was priceless. But it just shows another example of way technology needs to be used for front foot no balls. Especially when they continue to give crap umpires like Darrell Hair Test matches
