ICC Decided to Use Decision Review System DRS For the First Time in the Men’s T20 World Cup 2021
The ICC has decided to use the Decision Review System DRS in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 to be held in the United Arab Emirates and Oman. As a result, DRS is going to be used for the first time in the World Twenty20, the smallest format of cricket.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced that the new playing conditions will be introduced in Oman and the United Arab Emirates for the World Twenty20 starting on October 16 (Sunday). In a match, each team will get a maximum of two reviews per inning.
After the Men’s T20 World Cup in 2016, there was no DRS in the last edition. Because, at that time, the review system did not appear in T20. However, for the first time, DRS was used in the ICC T20 tournament in 2016, in the Women’s World Cup.
The teams could take one review in each match of the girls’ event. In addition, the girls’ T20 World Cup in 2020 had the same DRS facility.
The governing body announced in June last year that an additional DRS would be placed in every inning of matches of all formats, keeping in mind the “inexperienced” umpires due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. As a result, the number of reviews increased to two in each innings in the white-ball format, and three in Test cricket.
