    True.

    More the reason now for the Indian team and BCCI to not use it.

    Veera:
    If its more than 2.5 metres down, from the stumps to point of impact, it comes down to on-field umpirer's call. Great game on
    That...makes...sense?

    Either trust it completely, or don't trust it competely. that's the whole point of UDRS. Why the **** is people talking about technology when it's use is still prone to human judgement (and error as in this case)??

    ICC has provided "exhibit A" for anti UDRS brigade and the BCCI

    OT- what do Indian fans think of Sourav's commentary? Today was the first i have heard of him. At the start, i thought it could be a disaster, but as he's come on again, i've enjoyed him more. He seems thoughtful and inciteful. Really liking it.

    What a stupid rule.
    Is it actually a rule? Might be some sort of guideline that Hawkeye is less reliable when the ball has further to travel, but I'm dubious as to it being actually written down as a law as such.

    In any event it wasn't just clipping leg, it was hitting half way up middle.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Not at all... There is nowhere in the lbw law which says if the batsmen is so and so metres down the line, he cannot be given out.

    Hawkeye said it was hitting middle and off, halfway up. If you think the technology's margin for error is great enough to question that prediction then it shouldn't be used in the first place.

    Yes it was.

    That 2.5 metre rule is supposedly part of the system.

    Exactly... it is a more reliable guide than the 2 metre down the line "convention".

    Great 100 from Stroos. 50/50 whether it will be matchwinning!

    Apparently they don't trust hawkeye...which would make sense if it was clipping leg or offstump. This was hitting middle dead on.

    Srsly weird.

    Fine knock from Strauss. Should easily go past Sachin's 120.

    India need wickets.

    This match reminds me of the NZ V SOUTH AFRICA match in 2003 WC. Hosts and favourites come out n blaze away, the opposing captain of lowly-ranked side comes out and spoils the partyand silences crowd.
