I didn’t catch the first ODI between India and Australia and am not watching the second either.
Hence, I was unwilling to weigh in on the fresh Decision Review System (DRS) controversy featuring George Bailey.
But Ayaz Memon put it very succinctly in his LiveMint column:
“…it is bizarre that a sport has different yardsticks for different teams. Imagine Grand Slam tennis tournaments where Hawk-Eye is deployed when Roger Federer plays Rafael Nadal, but not when he plays Novak Djokovic, who refuses to accept the technology.
The issue of efficacy of technology then becomes subservient to the principle of fairness and equality: If the DRS technology in cricket is not good enough, then it should not be used in any match.”
That sums it up for me.
