Default Is DRS Flawless?

I have developed significant suspicions about DRS after watching bd vs eng test match. The LBW and umpires calls to me ate still confusing and definitely not transparent. For the bigger interest DRS needs to be fully transparent and acceptable.

In another note. Do our players know how DRS WORK?

With the lucks we had with umpires I'll take drs any day any time even with 1000 flaws..even if its flawed,its flawed for both teams..in case of umpires most of the times we get howlers

there were a lot of howlers that were averted thanks to DRS

It is not flawless ofcourse

It's pretty simple, if less than half the ball is hitting the stump then it's umpires call, same applies with the point of impact.

Maybe. Different perspective.

It's like calling a '9' a '6', or vice versa.

Lol Dharmasena is part of the 'Elite' panel apparently?

Guy would have made sure the match ended on Day 3, and his incompetence scared the heck outta the white umpire who didn't raise his finger to a single lbw appeal

I am completely opposed to institutionalising dissent in the umpire's decision.

Part of what makes the game of cricket great is accepting the umpire's decision.

Tendulkar is right - DRS should not be a thing. It is not cricket.

Absolutely correct! That's what is the point. None can ensure 100% accuracy ...

I thought the best way to implement it was for the umpires to send it upstairs at will. That would have solved majority of the problems with dissent. Currently, umpires can't call for a LBW review but dissent can. That's asymmetric distribution of power ...

Sports that have incorporated DRS:
1. Tennis
2. Volleyball
3. Football(the real one)
4. Cricket.
5. Baseball
6. Football (usa)


*drs in this context is the Review of a decision/play.

Overall I liked the fact that Bangladesh fans now are questioning DRS, this is the same happened to Indian cricketers when they first faced it.

I don't know man but I'm loving DRS, it makes the game more fair & it adds some spice to the game too.

I wonder what took it so long to have DRS.

We are better off with DRS as opposed to without DRS. I still remember Tamim was out by some umpire where the ball hit helmet and nothing else and the umpire gave out(2012 Pakistan test).

Current DRS is a lot more improved and accurate compared to DRS 6 years ago. The Pitch in Chittagong made umpiring very difficult even with DRS because there are some balls that straighten and some that turn...and many times neither batsmen nor bowler has any idea about that. DRS Shold take into account the path trajectory of the ball, the spin factor, and speed of the ball and what surface it hit, so it's a tough job computing all of this. of course DRS would be flawed in that sense but it is still miles better than what we previously had.

Mostly BCCI and to some extent cost. Each match will cost ~40k$ more and that will go out of BCB pocket for bilateral series.

Perfect! People don't want to understand even machines could have hard times but even with those they are better!

I'd rather have DRS than not, and wouldn't completely rely on the 'naked eye' method of determining if its plumb or not.
