Aleem Dar wants uniform Decision Review System

ESPNcricinfo staff
38

Aleem Dar, the three-time ICC Umpire of the Year, has said the inconsistent use of the Decision Review System (DRS) affects an umpire's performance and has called for the system to be used uniformly across all international series.

"There's no issue in using technology," Dar told PTI. It's a good addition to the game but the umpires should stop thinking about it when making a decision. And, instead of being used randomly, the system should be enforced on a permanent basis in all series ... It's not being used in all series and that affects the umpires' performance. I believe inconsistent usage is not good for the game either."

Dar's is the latest voice to join the debate over the use of technology. On Australia's recent tour of Sri Lanka, Brad Haddin, Australia's wicketkeeper, said the system should be used consistently by all the international teams or not at all. On the other hand, the BCCI recently announced it was once again opposed to all forms of the DRS after India's tour of England, despite having agreed to a minimum standard at the ICC's annual conference in June.

The ICC also allows teams to opt out of implementing the system altogether for commercial reasons, as is the case with the upcoming Bangladesh-West Indies series, further complicating the issue.

Dar also said the ICC's new rules, which went into effect on October 1, have added to the responsibility of the umpires. The amendments to the playing conditions include having two new balls to start an innings, a redefined period of Powerplays and a ban on the use of runners. Confusion over the new rule on runners led to a 28-minute delay during the Faysal Bank T20 Cup final, and Dar said the umpires need to be more vigilant.

"I feel my responsibility has increased and we need to be more focussed," Dar told the Express Tribune. "The team [in the Faysal Bank T20] was allowed a runner because the tournament was played with the previous playing rules. Umpires may face such situations after the rule changes and that's an increased burden."

    @Gavin Carpenter - yes/no, as an aussie I just want the best umpires and Aleem Dar is one of them. Neutral umpires make no sense if you are missing out on the best umpires for Test cricket. I do not care which nation they come from. That and use the DRS in all "out" decisions by umpires - i.e. Shaun Marsh not calling for a review in his first Test in Sri Lanka when he got no way near the ball...

  • I.RAGHURAM on October 5, 2011, 8:53 GMT

    Dear JosRoberts.... You have already answered my question.... My question to all BCCI bashers was "Is BCCI is responsible for non-uniform usage of UDRS across all the cricket playing countries???" If Bangladesh/WI does not have money to implement UDRS, is BCCI responsble for that ???? BCCI has only questioned the quality of technology being used.... If all other Cricket playing nations including ICC are confident about the quality of technology, why don't they fund it ??? That would take BCCI out of the equation..... You seem to suggest that funding problem is coming since BCCI is opposed to UDRS... According to me, it is pure incompetency of ICC who are neither willing to listen to BCCI's concerns nor are willing to fund the existing technology so that poor nations can use it ... JUST BLAMING AN INDIVIDUAL ORGANIZATION WILL NOT SOLVE THE ISSUE....

    @Desihungama ...biased umpiring in Australia in the 70's 80's...lol Prove that statement please. Never seen it in Oz so would like to know your facts... If an umpire was found cheating in those days he may have been linched by the sporting public here...

  • maddy20 on October 5, 2011, 5:51 GMT

    @Paul Rone_Clarke and other BCCI bashers India is using it for England series Troll! Its just they don't like it. Thats called opinion and they are entitiled to it. India was no.1 in test and won the Worldcup before the England tour. One bad tour is bound to happen to any team. Come October 15th there will be no respite for the hapless England. The spin trio of Ashwin, Rahul(boy you haven't watched him bowl!) and Raina will have you poms begging for mercy!

  • on October 4, 2011, 22:46 GMT

    @ Bhaskar_Jani : You say that cricket should remain the game of gentlemen and the BCCI shpuld be commended for bringing neutral umpires to the game. Surely if it was a true game of gentlemen at international level, umpires from neutral countries would not be an issue. I'm sure every Australian and Englishman would be very happy to have Ashes Tests umpired by Simon Taufel and Peter Willey. As an Englishman I would certainly trust Taufel to make a decision withoiut his judgment hazed by national pride.

    The fact of the matter is that no system is perfect. Umpires will sometimes make mistakes and so will technology, but by using both in conjunction, the real howlers (which we saw in the England v India series, remember Harbajhan's inside edge!) are drastically reduced.

    @Desihungama, You are not 100% correct either. It was Noor Khan who first brought the idea of Neutral Umpires in cricket, borrowing it from field hockey. It was finally implemented when Imran was captain, he unilaterally implemented it in 1986 home series against mighty WI. It took another few years for rest of the world to be conviced and implement it.

  • Stark62 on October 4, 2011, 18:16 GMT

    I agree with Aleem Dar but the icc unfortunately the icc don't take the ump's in to consideration when altering the rules or applying new ones.

  • Zahidsaltin on October 4, 2011, 17:57 GMT

    Aleem isn't saying anything for or against DRS. His concern is about uniformity of its usage. Now the biggest problem in implementing it is its cost. Some countries like BD and Zimb have no money for this luxury and want ICC to pay for it. Solution is an easy one: Champions League of T20 is played among clubs from different ICC members. The event should not be domestic event for BCCI. It is ICC who should be running CL and allocation for spots in it should be decided as in football CL in Europe. In return ICC should pay for DRS and some more money for developement of the game in associate members like Afghanistan, Ireland and so on.

  • landl47 on October 4, 2011, 16:02 GMT

    @kk777: you're joking, right? The systems which are being used for the DRS were all developed by TV broadcasters and used by them for years before being implemented by the ICC. In fact, the suppliers of the various systems are all contracted to the TV companies and the 'cost' of the DRS is the money the TV companies want to allow the technology they paid to develop to be used. The reason the DRS came in was that it became obvious to everyone except the BCCI that it was ludicrous to have a batsman walking off while the TV audience and the crowd in the stadium watched on the screen the wrong decision that had just been made. Some examples from the recent England/India series: Bhaji and Raina were given out LBW to balls which they edged, while Tendulkar was given not out three times to balls which would have hit the stumps. I guess the BCCI thinks that's a good trade-off. The question isn't whether the DRS is perfect, it's whether it's better and clearly it is.

  • Desihungama on October 4, 2011, 14:57 GMT

    @Bhaskar_Jani - No Sir, you are wrong. It was Imran Khan from Pakistan who first brought the idea of neutral umpiring to the Cricketing World, primarily because India/Pakistan were getting biased umpiring decisions throughout the 70's and 80's whenever they played in England/Australia. And who can forget the 1987 Pakistan tour of West Indies which eventually the umpires won? Anyways, BCCI has never worked for the betterment of the Cricket, just the Indian Cricket. Forget IPL, The Champoins League is an ICC santioned tournament so how no Pakistan domestic team is invited? I blame both PCB for their inaction and BCCI for their overaction. Thanks but no thanks.

    I do support Mr. Alim Dar. As a Bangladeshi Cricket fan.....I think that BCB do more to use this technology for upcoming WI tour in Bangladesh. We are living the wave of Technology world......so what is the problem for using it to Cricket, as we use tech. all over our life nowadays??? ICC shouldn't surrender about this issue to any country. ICC should think about Cricket interest not the (any) countries' interest.

  • on October 4, 2011, 14:41 GMT

    What most people are forgetting, for any sort of technological advancements, boards needs money and BCCI has most of it. Hence anything that requires money has to be approved by BCCI. If ICC puts its foot down for UDRS it cant get that implemented accross the board. To the defence of BCCI, problems with UDRS was very evident during the series with England, where even clear edges were not caught by hot spot technology. I am though all in for UDRS, for a simple reason, once a technology makes way in a sport, then more research are done to improve its performance and iron out the faults.

  • sachin_vvsfan on October 4, 2011, 14:04 GMT

    "The ICC also allows teams to opt out of implementing the system altogether for commercial reasons, as is the case with the upcoming Bangladesh-West Indies series, further complicating the issue." Yet some fans like @Paul Rone-Clarke , @Geoff Boxall , @ Andrew Crocker always find an opportunity to bash BCCI/ INDIA whenever they see DRS in a title.

    @JosRoberts Who are you to suggest what BCCI needs to do because it can afford the costs? Why dont you ask AUS/ ENG boards to share some of the costs for UDRS for other poor nations? Why are people not talking about the recent AUS/SL series where DRS is not fully implemented. Was BCCI responsible for this too?

  • on October 4, 2011, 13:29 GMT

    How about the 'rich' ICC manages to somehow contribute some money to implement a uniform system. I mean, seriously, it gets quite confusing when you don't know whether DRS is implemented in a particular series or it isn't or to what extent it is implemented. Just have one uniform system - That's it. Plus you can also arrange for some sponsors for the system. Eg: Call it ESPN DRS (advertisement money)

  • ejsiddiqui on October 4, 2011, 13:17 GMT

    No computer in the world is 100% secure. Should we stop using it.

    This is what BCCI argument suggest that don't use if not 100% reliable. It would never be 100% reliable.

    But don't you guys think that making 2% mistakes is better than making 10% mistakes.

  • landl47 on October 4, 2011, 13:02 GMT

    I agree entirely that the ICC should help out the poorer nations who can't afford DRS. My question would be, if the BCCI is opposed to DRS, is it not going to refuse to pay its share of the cost of installing the necessary technology in countries who can't afford it? Then Pakistan and Sri Lanka will claim to be poorer countries who need support and it will come down to England, Australia and South Africa paying for the subcontinent to have DRS while the wealthiest cricket board of all pays nothing. The BCCI needs to be part of world cricket, not a rogue board refusing to cooperate with the majority.

  • harshalb on October 4, 2011, 12:38 GMT

    BCCI is opposed to DRS after England tour because they just could not blame 4-0 on any umpire.

  • JosRoberts on October 4, 2011, 12:31 GMT

    @I.RAGHURAM - If you read the article instead of just commenting to defend the poor precious BCCI you would see it says "The ICC also allows teams to opt out of implementing the system altogether for commercial reasons, as is the case with the upcoming Bangladesh-West Indies series". I.e. the Bangladesh board can't afford it. Not an issue the BCCI has.

  • kk777 on October 4, 2011, 12:08 GMT

    I don't understand the comments here...whats BCCI got to do with WI v Bang series where UDRS is not being used...if anything it justifies the BCCI"s stand that the cost is not feasible or better put, the increase in accuracy is not "worth" it...I also agree that whatever the system it should be applied uniformly...but the problem is ..it can't be... unless you guys are ready to shell out some bucks from your own pocket...As for conspiracy theorists-- How about the fact that a system with no independent review or prior use in lower levels(as is the case with other systems like pink balls etc) was even employed in international level in the first place???

  • I.RAGHURAM on October 4, 2011, 11:57 GMT

    Here Mr. Dar was discussing about uniform usage of UDRS across all countries... But sorry to point out that nobody is discussing non usage of UDRS in WI-Bdesh series for which ICC is responsible and not BCCI.... Agreed, BCCI is acting big brother by opposing UDRS in series involving India, but what about series between other coutries where UDRS is not being used due to commercial / financial considerations ??? Is BCCI also responsible for the same ??

  • Abisek on October 4, 2011, 11:56 GMT

  • I.RAGHURAM on October 4, 2011, 11:52 GMT

    Dear Paul Rone-Clarke, Adnan143, Smithie, Geoff Boxall, etc... etc... I have a question for you all...... According to u all, BCCI is the only Cricket board which is opposing UDRS.... If that is the case, could u please explain why UDRS is not being used for the West Indies - Bangladesh series ???? Is BCCI responsible for the same ???? If ICC is so serious about implementing UDRS across all the nations, why is it not financially supporting poor nations who can't afford UDRS....ANY RESPONSE FROM THESE INDIA BAITERS ????

  • bumsonseats on October 4, 2011, 11:46 GMT

    come on icc show some balls and implement the the full system. the countries that can afford its use, should help towards the cost an example sky in the uk should contribute in the winter against Pakistan and SL,and the aussies and india when playing the less wealthy boards. dpk

    To Andrew who write: This article clearly demonstrates what a ridiculous state of affairs world cricket is in in at present where the balance of power is so hugely weighted in favour of one nation...

    I alwas hear this argument from my English friends, and I always ask them to justify to me why certain countries continue to have a veto at the United Nations. Most cannot answer me, so I tell them if you accept that the world can be unfair in one aspect, you might as well accept that it can be unfair in Cricket. I am no fan of BCCI, but to assume that BCCI are acting for the advantage of "India" (I mean "Indian Cricket") is a misconception. We first brought neutral umpires to the game, and now we are trying to neutralize neutral umpires thru UDRS. What happended to the cricket being a game of gentlemen ?

(And everyone else is when that 1 vote magically prevails next time?)

  • on October 4, 2011, 10:49 GMT

    Well put Mr. Dar in regard to the uniformity of the UDRS usage, but the ICC just proved that the MCC Cricket laws are mere guidline which can be over ruled by some individual as it was proved by giving the best sportsmen spirit to Dhoni in regard to calling back of Ian Bell who according to the law 38 was cleary out as declared by the umpire. ICC has undermined the dicision of the on field umpires here and above all the MCC laws.

I was under the impression that reason the governance of the game was originally taken away from MCC and given to ICC, is that there was was a fear that MCC would favour England, the change was brought about only due to the comparative strengths of the other boards. One fears that such is the size and influence now exerted by by the BCCI, it will be very difficult for ICC let alone other national boards to wrest power back from them in the governance and administration of the game.

  • on October 4, 2011, 10:40 GMT

    Yep we might as well bow down to the might of the BCCI, obviously they think India have an advantage without it. Not sure why but the worrying part is that India do what they want and there is no democracy. When the best Umpire in the world wants UDRS there is no argument. When is somebody going to stand up against the BCCI and just tell them that they are not acting in the interests of cricket. The poor form of the Indian team may improve with UDRS they need something apart from boring low slow wickets to help them
