we've got a charity chips and lollies stand at work, the bird came and refilled it again today. she gives me a raging false positive every time tbh
The thing I dislike most is batsmen reviewing LBWs when they obv haven't hit it, and then the umpires decision getting overturned because more than half the ball is missing the stumps or something according to Hawkeye.
Wasn't there a delivery during the Test in which bat hit ground and ball simultaneously (or was very, very close to the edge)? It was all irrelevant because the ball bounced after passing the bat, but in that type of thing it would be very hard to get a definitive answer out of snicko, surely. The loud noise of bat hitting ground could potentially obscure the sound of the edge, hence making hotspot useful and snicko imperfect.
In that situation, where the audio evidence isn't clear due to simultaneously hitting the ground, and the visual evidence isn't conclusive, I suspect hotspot could help the process. Overall I agree that snicko should be the lead piece of tech and its call should take precedence over the very-imperfect hotspot, but in some situations I can see the latter being more useful, even if those situations are rare.

Yeah you're laughing if you think that's a false positive. Any mark that was there showed up higher up the bat, after the ball had passed, and I'm not even convinced it was a mark on the bat rather than a reflection or some such. If Tubby Taylor can deduce that it wasn't an edge, it's not an issue.
Holy ****. Read this thread re: false positives and whether or not it's relevant where it is on the bat.
What? The mark wasn't an edge noise, it was beyond the bat when the noise was made. So what are you saying? It was just a **** decision.
Good try though, obv still reeling from false positivegate last match.
I've seen people suggesting that the whole snicko for that was rigged. Like Channel 9 could somehow insert their own sound into the footage in seconds, and would want to screw Joe Root over in that particular way.
Tin foil hats over that way etc.
