ICC asked to take control of DRS


The ICC's cricket committee and its chief executives' committee want the global body to take "more control" of the decision review system (DRS).

"Moving forward we probably need to take heed of what the cricket committee is saying, take heed of what the chief executives' committee is saying, which is ICC should take more control over DRS," ICC chief executive David Richardson said at the end of the six-day annual conference in Edinburgh on Saturday.

Ever since it was first put to use in international cricket, the DRS has polarised opinion despite some of the higher-ranked ICC officials such as Richardson and current general manager Geoff Allardice asserting that the referral system has been improving and performing consistently over time. Regardless players and match officials have pointed out that it does not help if different technologies are used in different countries as part of the DRS.
