    The 3rd umpire should be allowed to overturn an on-field decision in case of a obvious error on the part of the on-field umpire, its would save time and would also help avoiding a situation where the players are constantly challenging an umpire's decision, which is something which barely happens in any other sport and it certainly shouldn't be happening in the ''gentleman's'' game....
    For what it's worth - it happens in the NFL whose system this is sort of modeled after. Each team gets two reviews per half. If you get both correct, you get a third one. If you lose a referral, you lose a time out.

    The difference in cricket is that losing a referral is probably a bigger deal with the games lasting all day.

    I think the compromise is very good to be honest.

    I don't really mind having two, but three would be OK too. Any more and it's too much I think. I do think ICC should find some way to include 1) Hawk Eye, 2) Hot Spot, and 3) Snicko at every Test match. Easier said than done with the money issue, but I do think they help a lot. I know snicko takes too long to produce, but hopefully that's a technology issue that'll be fixed in the future.

    i dont know what the problem with the money issue is, all they need is a sponsor.... why all of a sudden do they have no business acumen when come to sorting this out. you just want a system that cant be cheated and batsmen are just gonna start walking because its gonna make em look stupid.

    Right now, there is a lot of post-processing involved in terms of ball trajectory (making sure the system picks up the ball at the right times, etc). There is a technician present who makes sure everything is going right and it takes a bit of time.

    If you can get rid of it, you may want to work on it and offer to sell it to the ICC .
    Are you sure of that? Shouldn't synchronising the cameras take care of that? We can get a telecast to my home with all the frills in almost real time, but we can't get hawkeye to quickly work out a trajectory based off cameras placed at pre determined locations?

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Yup. That's what it is right now. They had a little 'how it works' on it, and there is still a bit of manual stuff that has to take place. Maybe in the future.

    While it's not the main reason for them not using it, there's a certain irony about the board with the most money not using the referral system, when cost has been an issue for some of the other countries.

    I love that the question of costs was put to them.

    Hate you BCCI.

    This is a joke.

    Seriously hope that all of our four victories over them this summer have key dodgy decisions going in our favour.

    Us Indian fans need to choose our "Burgey" to take you on head-to-head GIMH.

    I may ask Turbinator to step up to the plate.
