Mumbai: Blaster Master Sachin Tendulkar has asked the ICC to conduct a thorough review of the arbitrator’s appeal in the DRS. India suffered the brunt of this rule in the second test match in Melbourne against Australia.
The “referee call” comes to the fore when a “review” has been requested for LBW. In this situation, if the referee did not give in, then in the review, the TV referee does not have the right to change the decision when it is found that the ball hits the stumps.

The only good thing about the bowling team is that they don’t lose their mind. Sachin Tendulkar tweeted: “ The players are reviewing because they are not happy with the referee’s decision on the pitch. The ICC should perform a thorough review of the DRS system, especially the arbitrator’s decision.
The reason players opt for a review is because they are not happy with the referee’s decision on the pitch.
The DRS system needs to be thoroughly reviewed by @ICC, in particular for the “referee call”. # AUSvIND

The replay after LBW’s calls against Australian batsmen Joe Burns and Marnus Labuschen showed the ball hitting the gills, but both batsmen remained in the crease due to a call from the referees.
The rule was first criticized by Australian spin legend Shane Warne, which was drafted by the ICC cricket committee headed by Anil Kumble.
Shane Warne has always said he never understood the referees’ call. He said last year: “If the bullet hits the stump it can be pulled out and neither can it.”
