The discuss around the use of Decision Review System (DRS) DRS seems like it is here to stay. This was after it reared a argumentative conduct in a initial event of a initial Test between South Africa and Sri Lanka in Kingsmead, Durban on Wednesday.
Left-arm seamer Vishwa Fernando had trapped Hashim Amla in front of a wicket though referee Aleem Dar deemed as not out. Lankan skipper Dimuth Karunaratne motionless to examination immediately.
But, it seemed that a Islanders competence have taken some-more than 15 seconds to take a call. So, a umpires didn’t go upstairs. However, commentators on atmosphere pronounced that usually 13.79 seconds had passed.
Another aspect was that a on-field referee should have stirred a fielding group once a 10-second window elapsed. That too was missing.
Later on, HawkEye showed that Amla was out as a round would have crashed into a stumps.
Under Rule 3.2 (b) in Appendix 2 of a ICC Rules and Regulations, players have only 15 seconds to counsel either they will examination a preference with a third umpire.
The law in ICC’s order book states:
“The sum time elapsed between a round becomes upheld and a examination ask being done should be no some-more than 15 seconds. The on-field referee should yield a actor with a prompt after 10 seconds if a ask has not been done during that time and a actor should ask a examination immediately thereafter. If a umpires trust that a ask has not been done within a 15-second time frame, they will decrease to examination a decision.”
Earlier, in a recently resolved India vs New Zeland T20I series, DRS was in a limelight for a wrong reasons as Kiwi batsman Daryl Mitchell had to travel behind notwithstanding hotspot showed there was a large symbol on a toe-end of a bat after a round had upheld it.
