Implementing Decision Review System (DRS) on a consistent basis across all formats was one of the major topics that was discussed during the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Board meeting held on Saturday (February 4). The decision was given the green light by the Chief Executives’ Committee.
The cricket fraternity has been divided in two parts ever since the DRS came into existence in 2008 and has been used selectively depending on the consent of teams. But the apex body of the game is now keen to implement it in almost every match.
ICC’s cricket committee, headed by India coach Anil Kumble, will chalk out all necessary plans in May this year. The plans are likely to be approved in June and set to be implemented from October.
The DRS will be used in the upcoming Champions Trophy in England and in all televised matches at the ICC’s Women’s World Cup. Meanwhile, the system will be used for the first time in upcoming World Twenty20 tournaments. As per the decision taken at the meeting, each team will get one review per game in World T20.
Meanwhile, the cricket committee, after this year, will have to take permission from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to add any new technology in the DRS system. Last year, the ICC’s Cricket Committee had gone to the MIT where the existing DRS was upgraded. Moreover, the ICC is also keen on bringing uniformity in the use of the DRS. So far, different countries have used different technologies for the DRS but the governing body is keen to put an end to it.
