If Geoff feels that Dravid had caught Peterson at 49, and the TV showed it wrong, then why is he promoting DRS ?

He didn't factor in the bouncebackability factor. The reason why India is the best in the world :-)

Outplayed India? Only if Dhoni and Tail enders had applied they would have drawn the test.m

England were nowhere near perfect. It was Team India which opposite from perfect. This Team India is a servant of IPL. IPL has taken betting to highest level. IPL is not a Cricketing event it is a worst commerical event. Team India and BCCI is completely focussed on IPL. Because of IPL, Team India is losing skill, inspiration, motivation and fitness to play Test Cricket. These curators, coaches and BCCI officials are working for IPL growth rather than Cricket growth. Until IPL is thrashed, Team India is not going to perform well in other tournaments. IPL is completely meaningless and obsolete Tournament. Test, ODI & T20 Cricket is great to watch between Countries unlike IPL Teams which look like clubs. Test Cricket is ultimate to watch on sportive pitches. But IPL is making these pitches Lifeless.
