Lets pretend we have a curve, and two people are going to judge where the curve will be two metres from it's terminus. Person A gets one second to see the curve before it disappears. Person B gets five minutes, hundreds of coordinates along the the curve, and a computer with a graph builder.
Who is going to judge the curve better?
Whatever external factors you're talking about, like grass on the pitch or how many clouds are in the sky, do not matter because the ball is being tracked through the air until it hits the pads, not predicted. After that, it still has more information to go on than an umpire because it knows exactly where and how the ball has travelled as opposed to the general idea the human eye gives you.
This thread is going round in circles. Posted interview with the makers of virtual eye who admitted the uncertaintly about accuracy vis a vis human eye and also data of examples earlier showing how predictive path can be wrong.
ICC also have admitted unless the last time they went back on DRS that they never got it tested independently and the makers never allowed their officials access to check cameras or software/any part of technology under the terms of contract.
I need to stop reading, otherwise I might gouge my own eyes out.
The salient point in this thread is India will keep losing 4-0 every away series unless they improve, be it with the help of technology or the human eye.

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
The latest conspiracy theory is that if UDRS were employed, Sachin would be eaten alive by spinners... So BCCI are not agreeing to it.
Can I just check, are the actual rules being debated here? Ie **** that had nothing to do with DRS but guidelines that have always been there? Ludicrous. I thought everyone knew the rules when a batsman gets hit on the full. Bizarre.
