'DRS enabled to make correct calls'
Sports Corresponent: The ICC Chief Executive David Richardson has unveiled that the Emirates Panel of Umpires' usage of the Decision Review System (DRS) has enabled the umpires to attain a staggering accuracy rate of 98.5 percent.
In order to achieve this we need to maintain a world-class environment for international cricket and significant part of that means a high standard of officiating. I am very proud of the Emirates Elite Panel of Match Officials and our targets for correct decision making this year currently stands at 94% rising to 98.5% after DRS, according to ICC’s article.
We have already stated our ambition for a clear and consistent approach to DRS in international cricket and the need to finalise future international cricket structures to bring context to all three formats of the game and I believe that we are very close to delivering something that works for the sport.
