    I see where your coming from, but I think in the absence of DRS this rule makes sense purely from a common sense standpoint.

    If you can see in the replay that the batsman is clearly not out, then reverse the decision.

    yeah exactly so by catch definition, umpires can check every catch out there in non DRS matches

    But what does where the fielder took the ball have to do with the edge though?

    If that had carried further and Trott took a more obvious catch then Gambhir would have been out. That would be a travesty

    I'm happy with the end result but the process is ridiculous. If you can trust it there why you can't you trust it everywhere else?

    tendulkar.....please retire after this series.....it is painful watching you destroying yourself
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    So no DRS but DRS helps.........time for India to join the rest of the cricketing world and back the system

    Graeme Smith has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket, especially the IPL.

    Best batsman in the first dig, got a good ball in the second. Swann bowled well to him.

    BCCI Declares War On APPENDIX 4 - SECTION 3.1

    betcha each 3rd ump has been dying all series, hell every since the BCCI said no, to bring that little rule out
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    And I hear that DRS has been "used" despite there being no DRS?

    Strange day.

    He wasn't looking that good in the first dig for the first 30-40 runs was he?
