ICC committee recommends DRS system for all internationals

5:46 pm on 12 May 2011

Cricket's controversial Decision Review System should be used in all international matches, an International Cricket Council committee has recommended.

Teams should be restricted to one challenge per innings in one-day and Twenty20 games, rather than the current two.

The system, whereby players can challenge on-field decisions, was used in all matches throughout the recent World Cup but for all other major international matches the agreement, in practice, of both sides is required.

However, world champions India, have been opposed to the system from the outset however if the recommendation is accepted Dave Richardson, the ICC's general manager for cricket, says India will have no choice.
