    Its a game, take the good with the bad and respect the umpire.

    The current sytem is simply a ploy for TV to add drama for people who aren't interested in cricket

    If it is going to be used, it should be used every single time. To limit its use is a travesty, simply ridiculous.
    It gives perference to some batsmen over others i fteh referrals have been used by earlier batsmen. It will influence players averages depending on their position in the batting order.

    What will be the long term implications ?

    Will the batsman getting reprieved lead to higher scoring games and possibly more draws ?
    Will umpires give more not out decisions because they won't want to be shown up as being wrong ?
    What will happen when an umpire is shown to be regularly wrong on lineball decisions ?

    Any thoughts on these possibilities, or any others you can think of ?

    In case it is the no.11, they should wait. Simple as that.

    It's not just batsmen that can use it, though. The bowling team gets it as well...

    You are asking questions that could also apply to a non UDRS system,

    what if a batsmen is not given out to an obvious "out" when on ten and goes on to score a century. its pointess exercise. the importance the UDRS will bring to a game is limit the mistakes/ blunders etc.

    lets remove as mmuch doubt as possible... is nt strange that game has an option of doubt... in its basic decision structure.. "when in doubt favour the batsmen"

    The bowlers may actually benefit more from the referral system than batsmen.

    I shall put it in another way - if referral system isn't used, batsmen are generally benefitted more than the bowlers.

    It's not a fair decision if the batsman has to restart their innings, and the match can still change course because of a bad decision.

    Restarting an innings > Being unfairly given out with no chance to make amends.

    But worse than the current system.

    Well agree to disagree then. I feel that being able to resume an innings at a later stage is better than a player not having any impact in the game at all after a bad call.
