Travis: "@Nick I don't mind them using third umpire for that if the batsman didn't ground their bat properly. I just don't understand the logic of not using DRS to not slow down the game, when obvious 3rd umpire decisions do just that"

Nick Calder: "That umpiring review for a run out was embarrassing. The umpire is a metre away from the stumps, the batsman is almost past the stumps when the bails come off and he can't trust his own judgement. If they can't pick something that easy, how can they be trusted for close LBW calls?" -- Archer is back
