Australia to go ahead with new referral system against West Indies and Pakistan
Advertisement
#1
Despite refusal of several countries, Australia has decided to go ahead with the new video review system for umpires in the coming season.

While both India and South Africa have rejected the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) approved referral system, UDRS, Australia would use it in this summer during the Test series against Pakistan and West Indies.

According to the new system, players can ask on-field umpires to consult a colleague with access to ball-tracking technology before making the final decision.

In addition, either the fielding captain or dismissed batsman will be able to request a review of a decision.

The third umpire will need a ‘high degree of confidence’ that a decision is incorrect, otherwise the original decision will stand. Each team will be allowed two unsuccessful reviews per innings, down from three when the system was first used for trial.

The ICC, however, has backed the system saying it would help eliminate the ‘glaring’ errors.

“They are the ones that cause the most problems with player behaviour and media comments and they are the ones that are most embarrassing for umpires when they see them later,” an ICC spokesperson said.
