INDIA APPROVES NEW SYSTEM

The Indian cricket board has approved the controversial DRS system. The development comes after the ICC chief executives’ committee unanimously recommended “universal standards” over what technology to use.

Elsewhere, the committee supported plans to abolish runners in international cricket.

And two new balls per innings – one from each end – would be used in one-day internationals from 1 October.

On 10 June, India had said it would veto any plans to use the DRS in the four-match Test series starting at Lord’s on 21 July.
