For me though Kim I am more in support of it by some margin than I am against. Take a look at the Michael Clarke dismissal at Adelaide (2nd innings) and the Hussey dismissal at Perth (1st innings). The umpire missed the edge but the replay conclusively proved that both had hit it. Both players looked proper mugs when they didn't walk. That in itself will sort out a fair amount of people in the future. As well as that it was quite amusing to see Pietersen give himself out at Melbourne as well, knowing that there was no point in challenging the decision, although it is fair to say that he may have reached that conclusion without the system being in place.

Also it wasn't just the Johnson-Prior incident that free of the decision review by players umpires checked for no balls. In Durban Sharma was denied a wicket when the umpire went upstairs and also they checked for a no-ball when Sreesanth (who has history) bowled that short ball that got Kallis. That last part was great cricket and I actually thought in a strange way that JK did amazingly well to play the shot he did! Weird game cricket!

I like this reasoning:
"We don't accept this technology. We are not going to use it in any bilateral series. They were supposed to take us to see its use in the Ashes series but I did not go. We have made our presentation to the ICC, saying we are just not convinced about the technology."

So basically, they are having a sulk because the UDRS just so happened to go against them in the series against Sri Lanka.

The whole arguement that the ICC should instead "focus on improving the standard of umpiring" which I have noticed being said is a very weak one. I honestly think the standard of on field umpires is as good as it is going to get. You can't expect somebody stood 10 feet away from the action watching the game in real time when things are happening in a split second to get everything right all of the time. Human error will occur and howlers will inevitably be made. The UDRS (which does still need a bit of refinement to stop it's abuse) does cut out these howlers so what is the problem?

Personally, I think the review allowance should be cut to 1 with a 10 run penalty for a failed review. This would stop the reviews for tiny borderline decisions and ensure it only gets used to fulfill its purpose - to cut out the howlers. There is no doubt that the technology is accurate enough to pick up an obvious mistake.

Possibly a little cynical, but the main reason I can see to object to the DRS is because you feel your side gets more benefit from incorrect decisions more than the oposition. Given that with the DRS India may well have lost the series in South Africa they seem to have a point.

Yeah true. Though said that it is their loss then- wait until they have a test or series with a string of appalling decisions which went against them- Sydney 2008 springs to mind of course. With correct decisions in that one they would surely at least have drawn that test. With that in mind I would have thought they would have been in favour but evidently not.

Unfortunately until that pont it's their opponent's loss. With the UDRS it is quite possible South Africa would now be celebrating a home series win, something which they appear to have earned.

I bet they change their tune if it helps them in the World Cup.

I think the ECB should tell the BCCI to go **** themselves and insist on it this summer.

It's difficult to tell someone who has sh1tloads more money than you what to do.

God forbid if a decision goes against you this summer, the interweb might breakdown with all your biased moaning and conspiracy theories.

And the moaning would be justified, whether you think it's biased or not. Wouldn't you be aggrieved if the situation was reversed?

Quite, it was that match and series with subsequent witchhunt of steve bucknor that hastened the introduction of the UDRS into Test Cricket in the first place.

Ah, nothing like a one-eyed viewpoint, is there? From a neutral perspective (actually, slightly prejudiced against South Africa for reasons I won't go into) South Africa played the better cricket at Newlands, and without the unnecessary gift by the umpires to Tendulkar of a second life (which he seized and made full use of in a way many lesser batsmen cannot) would probably have deservedly won the match - and series.
