    Given that the technology is not infallible (e.g. seems the margin of error on ball hitting stumps is half a ball width, snicko cant be used for whatever reason etc) and we've also seen the 3rd umpire making mistakes in spit of its presence, I'm against its wholesale adoption

    Leave it for very basic stuff like no-balls, runouts/stumpings, point of contact with pitch/pad etc and the rest up to the umpire

    I've actually come to miss the human element in decision making and feel the wholesale adoption of technology has taken something away from the current Ashes test series

    Sums up my views pretty much perfectly.

    Not a fan of the limited number of referals. Make 'em unlimited or at least increase the number and would support it. Also if the hawk eye says it is hitting the stumps, it should be given out regardless of the margin.
    This was a serious post:

    But hawk eye isn't accurate enough to say that, which is why there margin of error has to be there.

    The number of referrals is unlimited though: as long as you're using your referrals to overturn wrong decisions (see Cook's dismissal and the 2 referrals used in Australia's 2nd innings in this Test) then you won't run out.

    Tbf, Hawkeye is consistent. So whilst marginal calls might have been missing the stumps, they also might have been hitting. So as long as the margin for error on the cameras is the same around the world, I'd have no issue with all balls Hawkeye says to be clipping the stumps being given out.
    Benefit of the doubt goes to the batsman enough as it is.

    Nah, I am a firm believer in the theory that benefit of the doubt has to be with the batsman.

    I would blindly say , yes.
    Adding HOTSPOT, HAWKEYE, SNICKOMETRE together wil b good for cricket.

    As far as BCCI is concerned, they sure are the dumbest board in the city.

    This. Having unlimited unsuccessful reviews is a bad idea, as teams would just feel inclined to go upstairs for every thing.

    Unashamedly a fan. Was initially anti as I thought the partial way it would be applied by captains could be an issue (and I wasn't entirely wrong), but it's so much better than not having it.

    Still needs tweaking, but if it overturns just one duff call it's justified its worth IMHO.
