    The only more over-blown issue in cricket than excessive appealing is slow over-rates. If you want to be a dick and appeal for everything then go ahead IMO; it'll not only make you look like a complete fool but open you up to a potential boy-who-cried-wolf situation with the umpires subconsciously.

    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

    What exactly have Cowan, Maxwell, Watson, Wade, etc done that makes indispensible?

    Take Cowan as an example

    Has never been one of the 2 best openers in Australia, averages 32 in test cricket and has virtually no potential for improvement

    One added bonus of UDRS (IMHO, obvz) is the "put up or shut up" aspect of it; the if you really think it's out, refer it type deal.

    I'm generalising massively here, but Indian teams, on the whole, do appeal excessively. With UDRS they'd look even more daft when they appeals continued after the umps' headshakes.
