    Caught behind, actually, but the technology at the time was inconclusive.

    On the other hand there was Bell possibly not out and Pietersen definitely not out. We could do this forever!

    I nominate DRS destroying a great SERIES! - England-South Africa 1998. Fraser LBW in the last over batting out for a draw in the third test? Atherton given out caught behind in the fourth? And Javed Aktar having half of England's wickets over-ruled at Headingley!

    Pietersen should have been out earlier in his innings though, anyway.

    Pietersen was out first ball too. Geez there were a lot of **** decisions in that match, Ponting's to bowl first for example.

    3rd Test: Australia v New Zealand at Perth, Nov 30-Dec 4, 2001 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Warne was plumb LBW at the start of his innings, but it wasn't given and he went on to score his famous 99.
    There was also an obvious caught behind in Aus's second innings not given (can't remember the batsman, was too busy yelling at the TV).

    NZ would have won easily had DRS been around.

    p.s. Check out NZ's freaky first innings. Every batsman either scored less than 10 or greater than 100.

    p.p.s. That was also back in the days when Fleming would declare as soon as the 9th wicket fell to save the embarrassment of watching Martin bat.

    Was Steve Waugh I believe. And I notice a complete excision of Warne being caught off a no-ball.

    (not that he would have gotten that far with the LBW, of course)

    There's a vague recollection of something along those lines

    That was a great series. The first test was the one where Fleming declared way behind to challenge Waugh to make a game of it. A challenge which was dutifully accepted and a game that was heading for a boring draw ended up in an exciting draw.

    Probably the best all round team NZ have ever sent to Aus.

    That just sorts the case for DRS out for me, sweet Superman, still bitter over that test. Just because it got his goose up and produced one of the most awesome spells of bowling ever televised it doesn't change the fact that Donald wuz robbed. Stupid Atherton, stupid Russell. muttermutter.

    Atherton & Russell was a different test wasn't it? About 3 years earlier iirc.
