    Referral discussion #4312

    Recent occurrence in Zimbabwe vs Canada match.

    21.1
    Balaji Rao to Taibu, no run, Appeal for lbw, was a full toss and Taibu came forward to sweep that past square, struck on the pads, was given out by Asad Rauf. However, Taibu knows he's made contact with the bat there, he's called for a referral and replays show there was a big inside edge
    This decision was made by some complete adulteration of a system. I'm sure that this is outrageous in some bizarre way and should lead to a total overhaul of the UDRS system. Clearly it is worthy of its own entire thread.

    Discuss at length.

    Edit: Apologies to Shri

    Outrageous. Canada's cricket board should refuse to use the system TBH.

    The bowler has played for India at youth level. It's a conspiracy.

    I know the tone of the OP was pretty sarcastic but, in all fairness, if there is a separate thread for wrong decisions then there is no harm in having one for correct decisions.

    Less discussion over the correct decision, of course, but that's because they will probably outnumber wrong decisions by 50-to-1 by the time the WC is over.

    Utseya to Gunasekera, no run, classical offspinners's one-two. Offbreak followed by the straighter one, Gunasekara plays for the turn, is hit on the pad, Asad Rauf thinks he is gone lbw, but Gunasekara goes for the review. And what does it reveal? That he had got just outside the line of off by the time the ball hit his pad. The decision is reversed
    So the decisions go against the Indian-Canadian but for the Sri Lankan-Canadian.

    Concrete proof of a biased system there I reckon.
