Yeah having seen the replay now that is a dreadful decision by Billy. Really quite horrible.

Lighten up.**** happens.
I will say that I think the people who are saying it's a horrible decision are focussing on the fact it was hitting middle half way up. In real time quite a few people had doubts whether it was outside the line or not.
Match fixing ****s!
The funniest thing is that Bell started walking... FFS Billy you egoist ****... The only person in the whole ****ing universe who thought that was missing the stumps was him...
Anyway much water, bridge etc. But I am pretty sure ICC can shelve any hopes of implementing UDRS in test cricket
Yeah, because it's better to have 4-5 howlers per match than to have one wrong decision in a whole ODI tournament.
For ****'s sake. The UDRS does not have "Ian Bell cannot be given out lbw" written into its rules.
It was a pants decision by Bowden. Blame him if you want to moan. He's been awful for some time.
The UDRS still allows **** desicions because - perfectly fairly - it is a way of allowing the technology to be used by the umpires. Who then make decisions. Said decisions will be the same as they were before, only more informed.
**** decisions are of course still possible with UDRS. It simply makes them rarer. And this kind of distracting topic can be avoided more often.
