Indian skipper Virat Kohli who currently leads RCB in IPL 2020 suggests that DRS should be used to review wides and no-balls for high full-tosses too. Kohli suggests this after the controversial moment happened in SRH vs CSK match. After this many accept and some reject the decision of the on-field umpire.
Virat and KL Rahul Live Interaction
Virat Kohli had a fun Instagram live chat with KL Rahul who is one of his teammates of the Indian cricket team. While the chat both cricketers made a conversation regarding the changes that need to introduce in the DRS(Decision Review System).
Virat Kohli’s Suggestion
“I am going to speak as a captain. As a captain, I would like to have the ability to review a wide, which could be a wrong call, or a waist-high full-toss, which could be a wrong call.
“We have seen this historically how big these things can be in such a high-profile tournament like IPL and in general T20 cricket,” Kohli said during an Instagram Live chat with his India team-mate, KL Rahul.
“It is a fast-paced game and you can miss a small margin and we have all seen this is a big factor. If you lose the game by a run and you are not able to review that wide, it could make a massive difference in someone’s campaign,” he added.
KL Rahul Reply
Replying to this KL Rahul makes a unique suggestion to add in ICC rules. Rahul also sounded similar feelings and said, “If that rule comes in, it is very good. You can give a team two reviews and say you can use it for whatever.”
As per the current rules of ICC, teams are allowed only one review per innings in T20 games, including in the Indian Premier League.
Asked if there were any other changes he would like to see in the rules which are currently in place, Rahul said, “If someone hits a six over 100 meters, it should be given more runs. I will ask my bowlers about this.”
