DRS rightfully pushed through by ICC
The Decision Review System (DRS) is possibly the greatest but most controversial thing to ever be a part of cricket.
The DRS was brought in to give teams the opportunity to challenge umpiring decisions that they believe to be wrong.
The International Cricket Council first introduced the system in November of 2009 in a Test match between New Zealand and Pakistan in Dunedin.
After an early feeling out process, all countries began to get used to it, adding some extra interest for the fans.
In 2011 the use of DRS became mandatory in each form of cricket unless other agreements were reached between the two teams.
Ever since its introduction, the BCCI (which is the governing body of cricket in India) has had a problem with it. Being the ultimate power broker that they are of international cricket, the stance that India has taken has resulted in plenty of turmoil.
The BCCI has seemingly always questioned the reliability of the technology, especially when decisions were mad against their own team.
Just yesterday the ICC reiterated its push to have the system become mandatory in all forms of cricket and in all games, as long as the technology is up to standard.
This has come in spite of the BCCI’s opposition to the system, which is great to see for all cricket lovers out there, because it is great to see the ICC not backing down to the almighty BCCI.
