    This was referred to the 3rd Umpire just out of safety,

    how low have the Umpire standards have fallen. Before technology was brought in the game, umpires would give out correct runout calls with batch inches away from the crease in real time.

    Same goes for the lbw as well. They know there is replay so why take blame.

    On another note, I also think when the batsman ask to confirm clean catch that should be counted as review as well.

    This is exactly my point.
    If there is SO MUCH EMPHASIS on the technology, then so be it. Remove the umpire's call from the LBW decisions.
    It's out if there are three red dots, otherwise not out - no matter which party challenges the umpire decision.

    Pitching out side leg should not be consider as now we have technology to track the ball. Either we use the technology to full extant or not all.

    That's a different story.
    You are talking about a fundamental change in the centuries old rule where pitched outside the leg is "not out" EVEN if the ball is hitting dead in the middle stump.

    I am in favor of changing this rule, ESPECIALLY in T20 where the rules are way too much in favor of the batsman. So bowlers should get some compensation.

    I think it was there because in those days bowling variation were yet matured. So thinking was if it pitched outside leg it will never hit the stumps. There are many old rules changed so why not this. I think if the cricketers in early 1900 come back they will hardly recognize the cricket we play vs what they played.
