ICC: DRS to be used in all WC games

The International Cricket Council has said that it will use the Decision Review System (DRS) based on technology popularly known as ‘hawkeye’ for all the matches of the ICC cricket World Cup 2011.

The world's cricket governing body, however, said the hot-spot technology can be used as part of the DRS only in the two semi-finals and the final of the mega event to be held in the Indian sub-continent from Feb-April 2011.

Indian skipper MS Dhoni is known to be in favor of the hot-spot technology, which uses infrared sensors to show whether the ball has hit bat, pad or glove.

"All the matches of the ICC World Cup 2011 will have the DRS which will be based on virtual technology. It is just that the hot-spot technology will not be available for all the matches," an ICC representative told PTI.

"ICC is still talking to BBG Sports for four cameras to be used in two semi-finals and final to implement the hot-spot technology," she said, adding two cameras each could be used for each of the semi-finals.

The representative also said the ICC is yet to finalize the supplier for the virtual technology as it has asked for quotations from Virtual Eye and Hawkeye, the two firms that provide such services.

The ICC's clarification comes a day after one of its spokespersons said in Mumbai that the DRS will be used in the four quarter-finals, two semi-finals and the final - a total of seven matches.
