Although I would agree to those who say that the review system will make the game slower but on the other way it will definitely make the game more competitive and one can complain. We have seen a lot of matches turned because of your bad decisions like the one which Indian team lost in Australia. It was clear that the catches were not clean but still the umpires gave them out. Now if there was reviewing system at that time than definitely the series would have ended up on a completely different load. So you can imagine how important each and every decision is. So if you can use the review system and change such problems than definitely we're in for a more competitive game. I still remember that when the third umpire was introduced these type of questions were asked and a lot of people thought that it would slow down the game. But if we see it now when we are very much used to it and the game has moved along with that pace. We do not find any problem with the third umpire decisions and so I guess we are now used to it. In the same way if the review system is made official then people will start getting used to it and it will be an integral part of the whole system. And once that is achieved then I guess there is no point in discussing disadvantages. I personally feel it is a very good technology and it should be used so that we can get better results which are not hampered because of few human errors. We must understand that umpires and human and they get only a split second to judge difficult decisions and that means they can make mistakes. But if we can rectify them indefinitely we should do that keeping in mind that their integrated is not questioned.

Nice topic yash, But I would also support the third umpire review system, if you are meaning that! It could reduce errors Making use of technology only increases the benefits and ease of Human Actions including us communicating right here ! So I dont see any reason why it should not be used towards the betterment of decision making quality in cricket ! I dont say that it should be exactly as it is now . But technology should be used as much as possible to make the game fair, especially in this era when "walkers" are considered fools !!!
