IPL 2018 to introduce DRS

KalingaTV News Network

Mumbai: The Decision Review System (DRS), already used in the T-20 Internationals, will be introduced at the 11th edition of Indian Premier League.

IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla said that the TV replay system will be utilised if a team challenges an umpiring decision.

Each team is given one chance to review an umpiring decision during a T20 innings, and the third umpire will have access to both ball-tracking and Ultra Edge, he added.

Last year, MS Dhoni, who was representing Rising Pune Supergiant, was fined by the IPL for breaching the code of conduct after he made the T-signal in jest, asking for a review in a match against Mumbai Indians despite knowing there was no DRS.

The use of DRS in T20 Internationals was introduced on October 1, 2017.

This year, the mega IPL tournament will commence on  April 7 and continue till May 27.
