    There was some hotspot, on the edge of the bat. Sorry why are you swearing at me, this is all very odd.

    Meanwhile, NZ doing a great job of "gritting it out" here.

    As long as they bat their full 50 overs, they are giving themselves a chance.

    Eggactly & as I said, had he reviewed immediately, I think it might have played into the 3rd Umps mind.

    yeah, this.

    No, that doesn't make sense at all.

    Hotspot showing a spot is conclusive evidence that the ball has hit the bat.

    However, hotspot not showing a spot is not conclusive evidence that the ball hasn't hit the bat.

    That white mark or hotspot was from him striking the bat when taking guard and last time I checked a cricket ball is round. An edge would leave a smaller mark than what was shown on hotspot.

    I'm not swearing at you, I'm swearing at the situation and the decision. I think you'll find nothing has been directed at you, nowhere have I personally insulted you I have instead shown frustration with the situation that we are discussing.

    Wickets should never be given when there is that much doubt and lack of proof that the batsman is out.

    Yeah, I mean by what Athlai says it would have been immediate, but it wasn't, he knew he was out, he was out, no proof he wasn't out, can we move on without swearing at each other ****s.

    But in this instance, the benefit of the doubt goes to the umpire, not to the batsman.

    You're missing the whole point of the DRS.

    Nah, Taylor didn't call for immediately, but he did immediately act befuzzled.

    It's hardly damning evidence that he knew he hit it.

    His captain was at the other end, he went down to make sure.

    In fact, Taylor's behaviour made it pretty obvious that he believed he didn't hit it, not the other way around.

    I'm not saying I agree with it, I'm just saying based on the message they just conveyed to the commentators, that must be the precedence.

    that's not the system we have in place though (IMO, for good reason). It's a situation in which had it originally been given "not-out", the decision would have been upheld.

    Better to err on the side of the umpire than leave it up to the third umpire to make a controversial decision.

    It's taken 31 overs, but Brendon McCullum reminds everyone that the boundary is 40 meters.

    And it's not as if benefit to the batsman is a written law or official system. Unlike benefit to the umpire.
