No referrals in England-Bangladesh series
Advertisement
#1
Quote:Cricket's controversial umpire decision review system (DRS) will not be used in the upcoming two Tests between England and Bangladesh, it was revealed on Tuesday - just two days before the series opener.

Talks between the International Cricket Council (ICC) and host broadcaster Sky failed to reach agreement on the allocation of costs for the system's use and so it will not feature at either Lord's, where the first Test starts on Thursday, or at Old Trafford, where the series finale begins a week on Friday.

A consequence of doing without DRS is that Pakistan's Aleem Dar, due to be the third umpire at Lord's, has been replaced by England's Richard Illingworth.

That is because the protocol for series without DRS is that the home board appoints the third umpire.

Under DRS - which the ICC want used as extensively as possible in Tests - teams are allowed two referrals per innings where they can challenge an on-field umpire's decision, with the third umpire using television technology to decide whether the men in the middle have got it right.
