'tactical reviews' argument is just nonsense
you are either out or not out. There is absolutely no tactical benefit calling for a review
The reason reviews are called is purely because the captain or batsmen is not sure..zero to do with tactics
If they can get the tail, nothing stopping the Vics from just throwing the bat. Sure, WA will bowl them out, but a result is still possible. WA could get 60 overs to bowl them out.After four fascinating days of attritional cricket at its best looks as tho the final will now end in a tame draw. A shame. Yet it will be WA's first title since '99.
I have said it before this innings. Aaron Hardie will play Test cricket. Appears we now have two exceptional all rounders in the Keith Miller mould.
And that's not what the reviews were brought in to do. They were brought in to remove the howler. With 1 review you can remove the howlers. As it is you don't lose reviews for umpires calls.
the howler logic is also nonsense
any decision that is incorrect even if marginally can be classed as a 'howler' because that decision can influence the outcome of the game
The batsman/captain has the perfect right to a review even if he believes the decision is a 'close call'
