Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced that the Decision Review System (DRS) would be present in the upcoming T20 series between Australia and Bangladesh. Bangladesh and Australia will lock horns in five T20Is in Dhaka, starting from the 3rd of August. While there were doubts about the DRS’ availability, BCB has cleared the same.
The Decision Review System (DRS) has brought a new dimension to modern-day cricket. The method helps in accurate decision-making, preventing any false calls from affecting the result of the game. Nevertheless, the technology was not in use during the Bangladesh-Zimbabwe T20 series.
There was a rumour that the technology would not be used in the series as there exists no name of the DRS technology operators in the list of match officials. But Jalal Yunus, chairman of the media committee of the BCB dismissed it and confirmed that DRS would be in place for the five-match rubber. “There is no problem with DRS or there is no reason not to. So far I know there will be DRS in the series,” Yunus told BD.crictime.
Bangladesh have not beaten Australia in a T20 game before:
As Australia and Bangladesh gear up for the five-match series and the T20 World Cup, one must know that the latter has not defeated the men in yellow in the T20s yet. Australia have won all four encounters, the last of which came in 2016. But their inconsistent run in the format should give the hosts the confidence.
