    Position of snicko mics

    Does anyone know where the snicko mics are placed? Are they placed close to the stumps or at various positions along the pitch? I ask because I feel nicks don't register as much when a player is playing a shot further down the pitch e.g. a sweep shot. Perhaps this is why Lyon's nick didn't register?

    As I understand it, RTS uses the stump microphone to pick up sound, and yes apparently it doesn't work as well when the batsman is a long way down the wicket or where his body is in between the sound and the mic. It's worth noting that for the Lyon decision, not only did RTS not pick anything up when the ball passed the bat, it also didn't register anything when the ball hit his arm.

    No, when Llong asked for an lbw review, the C9 team (who were all in a state of 'wtf why is he taking so long when its obviously out?') gave him footage from the wrong ball.
