It pitched outside leg; yeah right
UPDATE: LegBreak from Sportsfreak adds to the intrigue...
Some kind soul has paused their TV and taken this photograph. It's the ball from which Australian #11 Nathan Lyon was given out LBW on Monday, before the UDRS overruled it.
The URDS showed the ball pitching outside leg stump. This photograph clearly shows that the ball clearly did NOT pitch outside leg. Either the UDRS system failed, or there was human intervention.
Sort it out ICC. Had New Zealand lost the test match because of this error, we would be far more caustic now than we are already.
