    The logic your using is still all wrong though on more than one level.

    Technology sees better than your eyes. There's scientific literature on this iirc. If true, it's the end of the discussion.

    your cock is blocked?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    To show what happened, yes. To show that technology can predict better than humans considering the factors involved in how a ball moves, I am guessing NO.

    I am saying what happens, FFS. Do you really think every umpire simply assumes the ball moves the same way everytime it hits the pads?

    Read the rules for what they're meant to do.

    In answer to your question, I think some do one thing, some do another, some make it up as they go along and the rest have no ****ing clue at all.

    Do you actually know what UDRS does?

    It tracks the ball. Using the real data, it can form a prediction of what the ball will do after it hits the pad. Not that it matters when you refer to the rules outlined before.

    And yes it most certainly can. UDRS has hundreds, if not thousands, of data points plotted to know how the ball has already moved, meaning it can plot the rest of the trend reasonably accurately. The human eye gets less than a second to process everything it sees, and no replays.

    And I think you gotta allow for all that. Assumption that the ball will continue the same way when it hits the pads in front of the stumps is a huge departure from what the LBW rule originally states about the mode of dismissal: A ball that hits the pads that would have otherwise hit the stumps... Of course there is the pitching criteria and hitting in line criteria but that was the gist of the dismissal..


    And I have spoken to one highly regarded international umpire who says it is most difficult to judge the amount of swing and spin on certain tracks.. So he obviously DID consider it and no one from the ICC thought it fit to tell him that the laws don't say that. This is like the chucking law, isn't it? Where it states only about straigthtening the elbow but the ICC then said you could always bowl with a bent arm straightened...
