Is the Umpire Decision Review System any good?

There are two important test series going on, one each in Australia and South Africa. Both the Australia vs West Indies and the England vs South Africa Test Matches are using the ICC's new Umpire Decision Review System wherein players can appeal against the decision of the on field umpire's decision if they think that the decision has been correct. The Umpire Decision Review System or UDRS as it is being called has raised a huge debate in the cricketing circles, with more cricket players and experts seeming to be against this new tool. Read this piece on my new blog - 'Butjazz' on Why the ICC's Umpire Decision Review System is very good, and the way to go forward.
