A BATTING WITH BIMAL BREAKING REPORT: The DRS should be made mandatory for all Test matches, says Matt Prior

Prior believes the DRS system adds a higher degree of fairness to the sport

England wicketkeeper batsman Matt Prior has called for the Decision Review System (DRS) to be implemented into every single Test match whether teams like it or not.

Prior and the rest of his England team-mates are currently playing a four-Test series against India without the use of the DRS since the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have continually opposed the use of it due to the fact that they believe it is inaccurate.

The Daily Mirror quoted Prior as saying: “We are playing at a level now where there is a lot riding on decisions, so it would be great if the same technology is available for all the matches. It should be uniform for all series, I’ve always been a fan of DRS and I think if there is technology out there that can help and aide split second decisions then why wouldn’t you use it? We’ve seen in a number of series now where it has worked and worked very well.”

Earlier this year, the creator of the DRS system, Ian Taylor launched a scathing attack against the International Cricket Council (ICC), stating that their handling of the technology was a “joke”.

Taylor was also concerned about the fact that players’ careers were being ruined due to the improper use of the technology.
