London: Umpire Tony Hill has said he doesn't mind being proved wrong by the DRS as long as the correct decision is arrived at. While the technology is not fully perfected yet, the concept is "magnificent", Hill said at a seminar for umpires in Nelson, New Zealand.
"I can see no reason why you can't be sitting in your lounge at home and see I'm wrong. I'd much rather have the decision right and get on with the game," Hill was quoted as saying by Stuff.co.nz. "I also find that the players tend to get on better with each other out on the paddock when DRS is in use, because the little niggles that can occur when a mistake's made, they're taken out of the game."
The hardest areas for umpires to judge, Hill said, are the "little fine edges down leg side off gloves". Hot Spot to help detect faint edges, along with Virtual Eye to help with lbw decisions, though not absolutely foolproof, are preferable to no assistance at all he said.
