Richardson still sees the DRS as an asset to the game
With the controversial Decision Review System (DRS) stealing all the limelight in the ongoing Ashes series, International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive David Richardson has announced that he is contemplating giving teams more reviews in the near future.
The DRS has been heavily criticised throughout the Ashes series as numerous reviews have led to wrong decisions being made, despite all the technology available.
“DRS has always been a work in progress and it’s improving all the time,” Richardson was quoted by the Sydney Morning Herald as saying. “If we can improve the protocols with the way we use it, then I think we’ll be looking at it.”
Richardson also added that the ICC have refused to scrap the use of the DRS during matches, despite all the controversy surrounding it in the ongoing Ashes series and continuous objections by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
“Errors are always going to be made, DRS corrects most of them,” Richardson said. “We’ve got meetings coming up in September and October where it will probably be discussed on a more formal basis.”
