Melbourne: Former Australian leg-spinner Stuart MacGill feels the Decision Review System will remain controversial whether it is used or not but the prerogative to use the technology should remain with the on-field umpires and not the players.
"The DRS, or its absence, is going to prove controversial and I would encourage you all to take sides, because you'll have more fun if you can argue about it. And there are two sides to my own opinion," MacGill said.
"First, you can't blame the BCCI for not using the DRS. The ICC decided to allow its members to make a choice and they did. They know decisions will go for and against them. Second, despite the fact that Aleem Dar, one of the best umpires in the world, has called for the DRS to be uniformly adopted in all international series, I have a major problem with it.
