A BATTING WITH BIMAL BREAKING REPORT: Zaka Ashraf urges BCCI to reconsider decision on DRS

The BCCI have never been interested in using the DRS during matches

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf has called on the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to reconsider its stance on the enforcement of the Decision Review System (DRS).

Speaking to the media, Ashraf stated that the DRS was an excellent way to move the game forward one step, and that India should seriously consider changing their minds about its implementation in all cricket matches.

“I feel accepting the DRS system will be in the larger interest of the sport,” Ashraf said.

At a meeting in Kuala Lumpur, the International Cricket Council (ICC) stopped plans to make the DRS mandatory in all matches after India voiced their opposition towards the technology, saying that it was not 100 per cent error free.

However, Ashraf does not agree with India’s view, and noted that most decisions made by the DRS have been good for the players and umpires, and for the cricketing community in general.

“It is a system which is also beneficial for the umpires in the long run,” Ashraf said.

Pakistan have always been a heavy supporter of the technology, and are currently trying to find a sponsor to support it during their ODI series against Australia this month.

India, on the other hand, have noted that the DRS is also not cost effective for all the cricketing boards across the world.
