From the BEU's pov it looked very much like he'd gloved it.
Tragically I wasn't recording so can't be definitive.

I'd suggest that they were watching *a* replay, but there was also the
possibility that by the time that the *best* (worst?) replay came along
Prince had long gone. It may have even been after the mandatory 2 minute
Nein ad break.

If it's important to you, find someone who's recorded it (Maiet?) and ask
them.

Not really that important to me. The umpire made his decision, and
right or wrong, its in the book.  Maybe I'd care more if RSA had been 3
runs away from victory . . . :)

Obviously you're not a bowler. :P

So a batsmen can be recalled due to a dodgy decision but won't be
asked to leave the field when the replay that follows showed a clear
edge that was missed by the umpire? A large double standard.

Recalling a batsmen due to a replay on the big screen opens too many
cans of worms, it can also ruin the spirit of the competition if one
captain recalls a batsmen in this situation but the other captain
doesn't on a similar situation.

I don't think the game of cricket will benefit from clinically 100%
correct decisions, it'll slow the game down and it'll give us nothing
to *** about when our team loses!

The answer to that is obvious by looking at his posts.

Its so tiring searching through the jealous anti Australian posts that
appear everywhere. There is nothing wrong with opinion and counter opinion,
but that stuff is just pure drivel

I see that you use OE. Does it have a k/f or any sort of scoring?

Far simpler.  Let the on-field umpire make the call on the field.  Then...
Every out is reviewed by the 3rd umpire, who can reverse an out decision if
it
is clearly incontrovertibly incorrect.  Fielding side gets <n> appeals per
innings
to refer to the 3rd umpire to appeal "not out" decisions.

Take away the ability of the umpires to refer to an external umpire -- with
the
exception possibly of runouts.
