Screen Test

I'm still not convinced, either way, about the 'we've got the technology, therefore we should use it' argument when it comes to second-guessing umpires decisions.

I can see both sides of the coin, but having watched the recent Watson/Chanderpaul dismissal at Adelaide, I would suggest that the replays viewed by the third umpire aren't simultaneously broadcast on the big screen in the ground.

There's pressure, and pressure, and that does seem to be ramping things up a tad too far. Go any further down that road, and you might just as well put it to a vote of everyone in the ground.
