ICC seeks uniform decision review system

CAPE TOWN: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has commissioned one of the world’s leading technology institutes in an effort to achieve a uniform decision review system.

ICC chief executive David Richardson told journalists in Cape Town on Tuesday that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has been asked to report by May on the various systems in place around the world.

“In particular they are looking at edge detection and ball tracking,” said Richardson.

“Their findings will be discussed at our meetings in June and the aim is to achieve a uniform system with the agreement of all the Test-playing countries.”

Richardson said the technology issue was one of four priorities for the ICC in 2016.
