KARACHI: Pakistani Captain Misbah-ul-Haq has again maintained his stance over the use of Decision Review System (DRS) in all international matches.
Talking to the media, Haq said, “The DRS is an effective tool to rectify any umpiring errors which mean a lot during tight and close matches. The International Cricket Council (ICC) and cricket boards must work towards a unified DRS system for world cricket.”
Pakistan showed reservations over umpiring decision during the first test against Sri Lanka in Galle, which they lost. The Sri Lankan cricket board did not agree to use DRS against Pakistan. However, Pakistan is trying to secure sponsorship to use DRS in its next series against Australia scheduled for August.
The International Cricket Council has decided to leave the decision of using this technology to individual boards rather than making it mandatory in all matches.
Pakistan Cricket Board officials have supported the use of DRS technology on several occasions and said, “We believe it is a technology which is good for cricket and helps both teams that is why we will keep on supporting its use.”
