The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced that the Decision Review System (DRS) will be included in the upcoming T20 series between Australia and Bangladesh. Bangladesh and Australia will honk their horns on five T20Is in Dhaka from August 3rd. Although there were doubts about the availability of the DRS, the BCB has clarified this.
The Decision Review System (DRS) has given modern cricket a new dimension. The method helps in making precise decisions and prevents false calls from affecting the outcome of the game. Even so, the technology was not used during the Bangladesh-Zimbabwe T20 series.
There were rumors that the technology would not be used in the series because the DRS technology operator name is not on the list of game officials. But Jalal Yunus, chairman of the BCB’s media committee, dismissed it, confirming that DRS would be in place for the five-game surface. “There is no problem with DRS or there is no reason not to. So far I know that there will be DRS in the series, ”Yunus told BD.crictime.
Bangladesh has never beaten Australia in a T20 game:
As Australia and Bangladesh prepare for the five-game series and the T20 World Cup, it should be noted that the latter has yet to beat the men in yellow in the T20s. Australia have won all four games, the last time in 2016. But their inconsistent run in format should give the hosts confidence.
