    This thread is going round in cirlces for a while in any case.

    The fact as it stands is that Hawkeye has been made optional for the time being and until it proves itself fully it will remain that way or if it is proven not to be accurate enough then even that status can go.

    People are on either side of the debate and everyone varies on their opinion on the parameters that should be in place to counter marginal decisions(increased or decreased) ,and on the accuracy of the technology , on whether it can be tampered with ,where does VIrtual eye stand etc......

    All are pretty specific and detailed issues and not as simple as some make it out and going round and round in circles about it when the decision has been taken is a bit too pointless.
    I for one only don't want the Hawkeye for the marginal LBW decisions and i think VCS and others agree on that too,while differing on whether it is accurate or not. Then it comes down to the semantics of what is a marginal decision etc... and this debate can go on and on that too,so ultimately there is no end.

So basically HawkEye is saying, it can get decisions right which otherwise a competent umpire too can get spot on?

    ·
    Prediction of where the ball passes the stumps:
    • In all “normal” LBW instances under 15mm and average error of 5mm
    • In “extreme” LBW instances under 25mm

    An “extreme” LBW is one where there is less than 40cm of travel between pitching
    point and interception point and the batsman is hit over 2 meters from the stumps
    .
    The current protocol has a 45mm umpire call “margin”



    It's impossible to measure that without an element of bias or subjectivity, I'll go for the Dar.



    Perception Prince, perception. Just because they use all these new tech gizmos and cameras and sophisticated technology etc etc, we tend to perceive them as more "accurate".

    But HE itself claims that it cannot really be correct to even 5 mm beyond a point, and requires to fall back on the same despised thing called the human eye. As an investor I'd be hesitant to put my money on something which apparently improves slightly on something which I know can be controlled without it (non extreme lbw cases) by appointing a set of good umpires, but comes a cropper when it comes to extreme lbw cases. I'd rather eliminate massive howlers like inside edge, with help of additional tools like the snicko and hot spot, and leave tracking the predicted path of the delivery to the human brain.

    Hawk Eye's competitor firm, Virtual Eye specifically remarked upon this point as well. It admitted it's best to use their tracking software to assess where it pitched and the point of impact.




    Unfortunately my browser can't play that video (curiously it can play Youtube) so I cannot comment on this.
    Some interesting points there ,which discredit the 5mm theory and the makers seem to agree too. Hmmm........

    The debate isn't "going round in circles", it's over. You lost. It's entirely up to you whether you accept Cribb's definitive summary or stubbornly cling to your predetermined belief in your ability to one-up missile-tracking technology by looking at events on a 2d TV screen. It makes no difference to any of us.

    If you are gonna start looking at that way the debate got over when the ICC agreed with what some people are advocating here and made the ball tracking system not mandatory.

    Even though i won't mind it being used for non Marginal calls.
    It doesn't really matter what people on here say either way.

    And if you care to look all those points have been countered before and again by Bun in this instance with new information too.
    You can though cling on to your rigid perception if you want too,because you are entitled too.
    Though even the makers agree to a margin or error.

    Sorry if this has already been mentioned, I missed it yesterday. But I just read on cricinfo that they aren't using snicko for UDRS.

    While Hot Spot is the only infrared, thermal-imaging camera available in cricket, audio tracking referred to the high quality "clean and real time" replays from the stump microphones, and not the Snicko, an ICC official confirmed.

    Yeah,read that yesterday.

    Apparently Snicko takes too much time to load. So they are using high quality stump microphones whatever that means.

    They can do that with Snicko too tbh. Would have to time it pretty well in either case and do a wooden sound.

    Prince made a lot of interesting points. But some of these were based on erroneous premises as well. He admittedly enhanced and "moderated" the discussion nicely into a channel. FFS, it made me sit and look up the ****ing HawKEye website for an hour!

I don't understand why you can't just accept that they are being unreasonable - there is a reason why every single other board wants the DRS.
    Nah I am just accounting for SRT.

    Seriously, world isn't everything white and black. UDRS, overall good thing, but some aspects of it need refinement. There cannot be a "my way or the highway" approach here.
