    Just more evidence that it's not a problem with the system, but with the muppets implementing it.

    I would also like to see the ICC issue a statement about Pak being hard done by the umpires.

    I can't believe how many people can't see the difference between apologising for the umpires not knowing the rules and apologising for the umpires making a mistake in judgement. One is subjective, one is a major **** up that should never ever happen.

    The ICC aren't going to come out and apologise every time there's an umpiring error, and nor should they. They were right in apologising in this instance though because the umpires actually got the process and the rules wrong, which is completely inexcusable at this level.

    They should apologise for having a stupid rule in the first place.

    Let me remind you that Irfan was no-balled today when in fact it wasn't a no-ball. This is an example of the umpires not following the rules.

    No; you're not getting the point at all.

    The umpire thought he stepped over the line. The umpire was wrong, but that's a mistake in judgement, not a poor or incorrect application of the rules. Only the latter deserves an official statement.

    So....what do people think of the DRS now?

    Personally, the problem isn't with the system but the teams using referrals. But umpire's referrals need to be changed - make them have a judgement on the issue and make sure the third umpire has enough evidence to overturn it, if not then the third umpire's decision may stay. Hopefully should eradicate decisions like the Bell and Agar ones.

    It also hasn't helped that we're in a high profile series, have had a lot of marginal calls and have had poor umpiring.

    I feel like a dick for bumping this up, but meh.

    Don't understand how one can overturn a caught behind decision with no mark from hot spot.

    Still heavily in favour.

    Yet want it changed so that the Third umps are specialist. For better use of the tech, for less accusations of bias towards their own kind.

    This series has been SOOO weird though, just hideously officiated. Mind you so was England-India, Cooks LBW's that were shockers. Not sure what's happening with Umps ATM.

    Snocko needs to be included, why does it take so long for snicko to work anyway?, in this age surely its not hard to have it give an instant result.

    Yep, don't see what's so hard to understand. Everyone knows that HotSpot sometimes misses small edges, that doesn't prove he missed it. The noise however is pretty conclusive evidence.
