    I'd rather have one UDRS related howler per ten matches than one umpire related howler per each match.

    Spot on. I think we're seeing since the improvement in the stump mics that the umpires are using that technology better, hardly controversial this one though because he was out.

    Next time an on-field umpire gives a marginal decision out and technology later shows us it was correct, are we gonna start a thread questioning why he made the decision? ****ing idiotic thread from an idiotic member

    Agreed, although in this case I'm not sure where the UDRS shocker was, there only being one review in the game and in that case the 3rd umpire using the technology available to him to get the right decision.

    dhoni says dravid said he did not edge it. that should be good enough now for everybody. drs has had a very bad week.

    there is also the possibility though, that hot spot was right and that the sound came from somewhere else. in all, it was a poor verdict.


    Remember last time a similar incident happened, Dravid admitted himself that he thought according to his instincts he edged it.

    I still exactly don't know how he was given out," said Dhoni. "Whether they used Snickometer, whether Snickometer is allowed to be used, whether the audio technician gave him out, whether the third umpire gave him out. So it is quite complex. There is affair amount of questions when it comes to the DRS and if there is still some doubt, why shouldn't go to the batsman."

    As for Dravid, his latest extraction followed two eyebrow-raising dismissals in the final two Tests at Edgbaston, where he was caught behind off his shoe lace, and at The Oval, where he was given out caught at bat-pad off Graeme Swann despite a lack of clear evidence. On that occasion, he defused the subsequent row by admitting he had got a thin inside-edge, but this time, he was not so conciliatory.

    "He said he had not edged it," Dhoni said. "There was no mark when it comes to Hot Spot. There was no visual deflection as such. And the umpire had given not out. I thought the benefit of doubt goes to the batsman. That is a big thing."

    I don't believe that. I think HawkEye is even more inaccurate than Hit Spot.

    And no one knows the true reasons for BCCI accepting Hot Spot...neither have Hot Spot nor have BCCI presented the scientific justification for agreeing to Hot Spot. My intuition tells me they fell for the bit that Hit Spot tech is used in military stuff.

    I am actually very disappointed with both these gadgets...they haven't added much to the DRS. In fact a DRs sans these two would give us better results...in any case we are not bothered about knife edge ones...and to over turn howlers you dont need these gadgets...just simple, plain replays are more than sufficient.

    Hot Spot is useful - there are many occasions when it gives absolutely clear evidence that a ball has been hit, and many occasions when it tells you that the ball has hit, say, the batsman's sleeve rather than his glove, or that the bat has brushed the pad.

    The danger with hot spot is that very thin edges may not always show up. But we all know that, and so do 3rd umpires, and provided they bear that in mind, and remember that the absence of evidence on hot spot of an edge is not necessarily proof that there was no edge, all will be well.
