Smith lauds controversial DRS' role in cricket

Johannesburg, Thu, 29 Mar 2012 ANI

Johannesburg, Mar 29(ANI): South African Test captain Graeme Smith has lauded the role of television referrals and the umpire decision review system (DRS) in international cricket.

"I did read a report that there were issues with the set-up of the cameras, which obviously isn't ideal, and there has been a lot of scepticism about the last bit of the ball-tracking. But DRS has become an integral part of the game, it's great for the fans and I can't imagine playing without it," Sport 24 quoted Smith, as saying.

"It was designed to take away the shocking decision and it's done that. I'd like to see it play a prominent part in international cricket," he added.

His statement came after the DRS was criticised for inaccuracies in the recent series between South Africa and New Zealand

Meanwhile, England have been struggling to adapt to the DRS in Tests against Pakistan and Sri Lanka as their crease-bound batsmen are falling to record numbers of lbw decisions via DRS. (ANI)
