ICC wants DRS in all forms of cricket

The International Cricket Council (ICC) wants all member countries to use Decision Review System technology for every Test and one-day international.

The International Cricket Council's (ICC) chief executives' committee said independent tests had proved the reliability of the Decision Review System (DRS), which incorporates ball-tracking and "hot spot" thermal imaging.Despite the objections of India, the proposal for compulsory DRS will now be considered by the ICC board.

After a two-day meeting in Kuala Lumpur, the CEC recommended to the ICC Board that if members can finance and obtain the required technology DRS (Decision Review System) should be mandatory for all Tests and ODIs," to avoid disputes during matches.

On Sunday, Pakistan coach Dav Whatmore complained about the absence of DRS in the first Test against Sri Lanka , reportedly due to cost issues - after a rash of umpiring errors.The Test has been marred by at least 10 contentious decisions over three days by umpires Steve Davis of Australia and Ian Gould of England, with six of them going against the tourists.

Optional DRS has caused confusion and controversy over the past year, including complaints during India's tour of England, when the visitors refused to allow it.
