Melbourne: Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar questioned the referee appeal clause in DRS.
Smith (Steve Smith) played around the leg on Bumrah’s third day. Smith tried to play the ball coming from the hip towards the stump, but the ball caught the stumps of his hip. If that ball was hit on their pads and LBW was appealed and the umpire thought it wasn’t out, then it might not have been given. Here, the call for arbitrators would be used in the DRS.

Sunil Gavaskar said the bold didn’t make sense of Smith
Gavaskar (Sunil Gavaskar) told ABC Sport: “ I think the way Smith came out shows that even though the ball hits the stumps it has such speed that it can blow ravines. If you call on LBW and the ball hits the top of the stumps. Thus, the speed of the spinner ball is so high that the gills can fly.
The “referee call” clause comes into ball tracking technology when the case is very close and the decision is confirmed by the referee on the field.
He said: “If it is dealt every time, we will see the game end quickly.”
Sachin Tendulkar’s request to the ICC
Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has asked the ICC to conduct a thorough review of the referee’s appeal in the DRS.

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 conduct a thorough review of the DRS system, in particular on the referee appeal.
