    Yeah, I have no problem if it is left to the Home team to decide if they want UDRS or not. Infact that is I how would prefer it to be. India gets to make decisions about its home games while England get to decide what they want to implement in their home games.

    I don't think it should be up to any individual board to be able to veto the decison or not, regardless of whether it's a home series. There should be an ICC wide decision that says it applies to all test series or none. Preferably all, of course.

    Think of it as one vote to each board and a third deciding vote to the ICC.
    ICC's "take" will put to vote, and we know who'll prevail...

    ...which is why it was used at an ICC tournament, the World Cup?

    EDIT: not trying to downplay the obvious importance that India has on ICC decision-making. But there's obviously some sort of difference in this instance, whether it's been taken out of the hands of the nations' representatives and to the cricketing rules sub-committee, or what.

    Is The cost associated with UDRS responsibility of ICC ? If not then I don't see that happening anytime soon.

    Hoping for India to cop shockers each wherever possible. Multiple dismissals on 99, hattrick wickets not given, etc. Bring it on.

    Still going for India, mind you. Just hope they cop it re: umpiring.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    I don't want any neutrals cheering for India - ruins my day. It's how I know India has 'arrived' on the stage. India may never be as good as Australia were during their reign, but if they are as hated, I'll definitely take it. In most things, people hate the #1/most powerful thing anyway...from the Yankees to the lone superpower - only when you have more than one choice is when people pick a side. Even better are all the justifications for hating, which are lolerific and pretty awesome.

    People's tears and jealousy...they sustain me:
