South Africa vs Sri Lanka: DRS debate strikes nonetheless again

Vishwa Fernando had trapped Hashim Amla in front of a wicket though referee Aleem Dar deemed as not out.

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.”
