Apparently players have found a way to stop 'nicks' showing up on hot spot... something to do with putting silicon tape on the bat. KP's 'out 'is one under review. There was a sound on snicko but nothing on hot spot. AUS under review as well.......

This could be an interesting little scandal.

Surely this can't be true?

KP's response about it being countermanded by losing out on LBW's when you've nicked it said it all for me.
Hotspot is not infallible, ref Strauss at the Oval V Pak. In fact none of the systems are, that why they are meant to be used in tandem and as many of them as possible. Until we do that there are going to be mistakes. DRS will die if we do'nt ALL agree a system and pretty soon.

Cricketer gets p.ssed, big story. They do'nt call this the 'silly season' for nowt.
