The world cricket committee of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) on Wednesday backed a call from former Australia captain Ian Chappell for the sport’s authorities to take complete control of the controversial Decision Review System (DRS).

Chappell, in a column for the ESPN Cricinfo website, wrote: “The DRS should always be the sole responsibility of the cricket boards; they should pay for and operate everything that’s required for the decision-making process.”AFP
