    The only time when we see UDRS failing is when captains use it incorrectly. How many incorrect decisions has UDRS got wrong?
    memory really isn't my strong suit, but I can seem to remember another like McKay's decision where a decision was overturned incorrectly in favour of the fielding team.

    then there was hughes in sri lanka? where the ball tracking was ludicrous (he was lbw regardless)

    the aus v kiwi test in hobart was all over the shop too

    I would rather have a few errors but restore the excitement of the sport than the alternative.

    It might be time for Australia to play India so your memory can be refreshed.

    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

    Christ, what a world where Giles Clarke is suddenly the good guy.

    Shameful lack of genitalia from the other boards tho. Piss weak stuff.

    India acts exactly as they have done for the last, nearly, couple of decades - acting the bully

    . . . and even with ICC showing a wee bit of spine, the other boards have acted exactly as they have done ever since the new bully was first seen . . . showing they were a bunch of eunuchs . . .

    Its a disgrace and a terrible disappointment. As an Indian I only wish well for Indian cricket but how I wish the other boards had shown some balls and called India's bluff. If that meant no cricket for this cricket mad nation so be it even though it would be a great tragedy but this can't be allowed.

    Shame, Shame, Shame.

    ****ing ridiculous from the BCCI. Really annoying. Sick of their ****.

    Amazing how pussy the Australian and South African boards are too. Just a bunch of weak ****s.

    Just a minor correction. This attitude by the other boards is not so much a lack of balls, even though that is what sounds so much better, it is this amazing greed for the moolah. Having said that, what they also show is a reluctance to show up the bully to be the coward every bully is, once his/her/its bluff is called.

    It is by wanting but not daring to call India's bluff that the others have justified their 'eunuch' labels.

    By the way, even with the Indian public being conditioned by the parroting of the BCCI line by its paid commentators, why shouldn't the cricket fans of other countries raise their voices against their own boards this time for refusing to do the right thing.

    Open your eyes folks, learn to look at the BOTH the sides of a coin when discussing an issue.

    I'm not a BCCI fan at all, but they do have a point when it comes to manipulation of the system by host nations. Even though such manipulations have not happened yet, it can happen anytime in near future.

    Remember, how Stuart Broad and James Anderson cheated in South Africa 2010 by placing their shoe over the ball as an attempt to tamper the ball?

    Yet neither of them got punished. Had it been a Pakistani....God help them.
