Mumbai: As the debate on merits of DRS system continues, English umpire Peter Hartley feels that instead of the players it should be the umpires, who should decide if the decision needs a referral.
"I think there is a place for technology in the game. We cannot stand still. The batsmen get it wrong, the bowlers can get it wrong and the umpires can get it wrong. However, technology is needed to lessen the mistakes in the game," he said, talking to PTI on Sunday.
"The only thing I am against is the referral system that allows the players to question umpire's decision. I would like to see it other way round. Whenever there is a close call, (as an umpire) you know it is a close call, but you are not sure. 99 percent of the time, benefit of doubt goes to the batsmen.
