Dhoni says NO to udrs cricket | Umpire Decision Review System
AHMEDABAD: Indian skipper MS Dhoni on Wednesday said he was not willing to support the Umpires Decision Review System (UDRS) if it doesn’t come with a warranty. Dhoni said, “Referral system as I personally believe is not a cent per cent thing. It doesn’t give cent per cent return and it is not always correct.”
“I am not going to buy a life jacket that doesn’t come with a warranty. And we are concerned about the big money that we are supposed to spend if the UDRS system comes into the game,” said Dhoni, asking the umpires to step up and raise their performance. “I don’t support the UDRS system as you have two gentlemen standing as umpires on the filed, who are professionals. They also have the support of the third umpire.”
The skipper also questioned if the use of the referral system gives the umpires the liberty to give wrong decisions as they are professionals and they get paid to be there.
