In the continuing debate over whether the increased use of technology is good for cricket....or not, Brendan McArdle feels that the TV monitor is creating more problems than it is solving.

Our perspective on the game is being distorted. Ricky Ponting's run-out was supposedly the result of England cheating with its 12th man; Shane Warne was robbed of a maiden Test century years ago in Perth because Daniel Vettori's no ball was not called, not because of a moment of madness on 99 by our champion leg spinner.
