DRS to be used in PSL play-off matches

The PSL has confirmed that the Decision Review System will be used for the tournament's three play-off matches starting from Tuesday. The tournament's chairman Najam Sethi made the decision public by tweeting, "another first from #HBLPSL. DRS to be used in the #HBLPSL play-off matches."

While the ball-tracking technology Hawk-Eye has been used as a tool by the broadcasters since the start of the PSL, it has not been part of the umpires' decision-making process. This development possibly also marks the first time DRS will be used in a T20 contest at either franchise or international level. Each side will be allowed one review per innings in the same way the technology is used at ODI level.


DRS is, however, not expected to be available for the PSL final, which Sethi announced yesterday would be held in Lahore, as the company handling the Hawk-Eye technology will not travel to Pakistan.

Earlier this month, the ICC chief executives committee gave an in-principle approval for use of DRS for the first time in an ICC T20 tournament in 2018, with one review per team in the Women's World T20 in the West Indies.
