Abu Dhabi: Cricket's governing body on Friday furthered its process of improving the much-debated decision review system by providing direct replays to a non-match umpire, a trial also experimented earlier this year.
To improve umpiring decision in international matches, the ICC introduced the Decision Review System (DRS) in 2008 on a trial basis. The system allows both teams to challenge decisions made by on-field umpires, and have them referred to the TV official.
Initially each team was allowed three unsuccessful challenges per innings in a Test which was later reduced to two. One appeal is allowed in one-day internationals.
