its not like what you say that a batsman can;t get lbw after standing 2.5 meters outside the crease. Its like that the third umpire can't over rule the standing umpire's decision. So if the standing umpire gave him out then he is gone.

Regarding the new UDRS LBW Rule ; if the 2.5 mtrs rule is legal and binding then any batsman can stand 2.5 mtrs outside the crease and hit any cross batted shots and not worry about given out LBW, even if the umpire gives him out he can ask for review and will get the decision in his favour is this really fair on the bowler who anyways is at the recieving end in the ODI format
