On October 14 The skipper of the Indian cricket team Virat Kohli said that the DRS system is only applicable for a wicket but also it should be applicable for wide-ball as well as for full toss and no-balls too. But according to the ICC rules, the DRS system is currently limited to lbw and decision including edge catches during the match.
When Virat Kohli was live on Instagram with KL Rahul he revealed that now he will be talking as a captain and his opinion is that as a captain he should be capable enough to review to the wide-ball and high full-toss and no-ball, which may differ the decision. This rule should be included because as we can see in the big tournaments like IPL and T-20, these changes can make an instant impact on the scoreboard.
Virat Kohli explained a scenario to KL Rahul that if they are defending the innings and when the opposite team wants only one run the bowler spell the direct ball however the ball was at a legal height from the ground then if the umpire refers it a no-ball at that time this decision would be a marching changing one.
KL Rahul said by replying to Virat Kohli that this rule should be imposed because it will improve the match quality and he also included that the team should have 2 reviews and can utilize it for anything.
According to the ICC rule, one review per inning will be provided to both teams, and this rule is also applicable to IPL as well.
If there are any other changes that he would love to see in the rules that are presently in use, Rahul told that, if somebody strikes a six above 100 meters, he should be given more runs than the usual, he will ask his bowlers about it.
We hope that we can see this rule to be added in the future and we are completely in favor of Virat Kohli for the changes in the review rule.
