New Delhi. The Decision Review System (DRS) will not be used during the upcoming limited overs series between Pakistan and New Zealand. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) hosting this series and the broadcasters have not found any recognized service provider providing this technology, due to which this decision has been taken. The ODI series against Pakistan and New Zealand will start from September 17.
During any series, DRS technology can be made available only by the service provider which is approved by the International Cricket Council (ICC). According to sources, the DRS technology will be available for the two T20 Internationals against England in Lahore in October. Three ODIs and five T20 Internationals will be played in the series between Pakistan and New Zealand. One-day matches will be played in Rawalpindi on September 17, 19 and 21, followed by T20 matches in Lahore.
What is Decision Review System (DRS)
DRS is a system in which a player challenges the decision of the umpire. After this, the decision of the on-field umpire is reviewed with the help of video replay and technology like ball tracker, Hawkeye, hot spot, pitch mapping. If the on-field umpire’s decision is upheld, the team seeking review loses the DRS. If the decision comes against the umpire, the review remains intact.
