Worst DRS Decision Ever Made In Cricketing History, Let’s Find Out!

The Umpire Decision Review System (UDRS or DRS) is a technology that is widely used nowadays. If a batsman or bowler has any doubt about the decisions made by the on-field umpire, he can review the umpire’s decision by taking DRS. On-field umpires if have any doubt can ask the third umpire to use DRS to clear the things.

This technology uses television replays, a ball tracking device, a ball predictor that gives the predictive image of the ball where it will go after pitching. infra-red imagining device to check the temperature changes when the ball hit the pad or bat of Batsman, and a microphone to detect small sounds to make sure that the ball has hit the bat or not.

DRS was brought initially in 1992 but was first used in 2008. It was brought to make controversial decisions given by the on-field umpire fair. International Cricket Council (ICC) is working tough in improving the technology as many former cricketers are questioning it.

Nothing is 100% correct. They are faults in DRS, let’s find!

The credibility of DRS has always been questioned. Many times, DRS has given wrong decisions or we can say it has predicted wrong. Let’s take an instance of a match played between Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Saeed Ajmal was the bowler, the ball hit the pad of Sri Lankan batsman and the Pakistani team went for an appeal which was given out by the on-field umpire. Sri Lankan batsman opted for DRS and the decision was taken to upstairs. The ball tracker showed that the ball was missing the stumps due to the bounce and it was literary a joke. The ball wasn’t short to go above the stumps and you should keep in mind that the match was played in the sub-continent pitch which doesn’t offer this much bounce.

After the decision, Sri Lankan batsman was survived as according to the rules, the ball must hit the stumps in an LBW appeal. This was a big fault according to me in DRS history. Many conflicts have made people raise questions about the technology. No one especially the Pakistan team can’t forget the incident of the 2011 World Cup match when Sachin Tendulkar was given out but he saved himself from the DRS.


I have seen a couple of times that DRS has failed to predict the ball tracking correctly. There are many incidents where Hawk-Eye has failed to detect the bounce of the ball as we saw in the case of Pak vs SL. 

But the same DRS has been successful in most cases and thus it is still used. ICC is continuously working on the efficiency of the technology but again nothing is 100% correct.
