Why on earth does cricket not use technology more?
It is great that they use technologies to adjudicate run outs, stumpings and the legitimacy of catches. I say why not go further and use it for caught behinds and for LBW's.
Anti-technology proponents argue it will slow the game down. How could it possibly? The game is already slow. It will give us something to look at in between balls. In most cases one or two quick looks brings clarity.
Another protest is that the LBW technology is not perfect yet. After watching cricket for the last 30 years I have to say it is more accurate than umpires! They haven't got a clue!
Similarly the extreme close up and use of audio technology to hear sound makes caught behinds far more accurate through technology.
I say get the umpire to go upstairs when it is unclear. The third umpire could even communicate to the on-field umpire when they feel something should get a second look.
I know NZ were slaughtered by Sri Lanka at the World Cup and they have no excuses, but the game may have been different without a couple of shockers!
So I say, let's get into the twenty-first century and use the technology. I think it adds to the suspense.
