Lbw decisions won’t be reviewed in India-England seriesJuly 20th, 2011 - 8:15 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 20 (IANS) Leg-before decisions will not be reviewed in the upcoming four-match Test series and five One-day Internationals between India and England.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have reached an agreement over the Decision Review System (DRS), and now the minimum standards of infra-red technology and stump microphones will be employed during the Test and ODI series.
The ball tracking technology (Hawk-Eye) for lbws has been excluded. The other two technologies also would not be used for lbw decisions.
The two boards have been in conflict over the use of DRS. While ECB favours DRS use, which would have included ball tracking technology, the BCCI wished to limit it to the agreed minimum standards in this series.
As per the agreement reached by all parties, players will not be able to review leg-before-wicket (LBW) decisions during the Test and ODI series.
“While we are disappointed that the full DRS will not be used to support the umpires, we are pleased that the ECB and BCCI have worked hard to ensure the minimum DRS is used in this much anticipated series,” ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said in a statement.
“It is a common knowledge that the ICC and ECB would have liked ball tracking to have been included so that lbw decisions could have also been reviewed, but at the last chief executives committee and board meeting in Hong Kong it was agreed to independently confirm the accuracy of ball-tracking technology. This will now take place as a matter of urgency.”
The ICC board had agreed a CEC recommendation that ball tracking technology be used only if both participating teams agree.
