Former Indian first-class cricketer Niranjan Shah announced on Thursday that Rajkot stadium will witness Decision Review System (DRS) in the upcoming India and England series.
The test series between India and England will get start from November 9 at SCA stadium Khandheri. The match will be hosted by Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA)
“Decision Review System (DRS) will be implemented during the Test match in Rajkot,” Niranjan Shah, SCA honorary secretary said.
Earlier, BCCI was not allowing Decision Review System in the stadium but now it has taken decision to utilize the system in upcoming Test series.
“Though it would be on trial basis, this will be first ever bilateral test with all components and technology of the system including the ball tracking system being used during the match as well as the series,” Shah said.
Shah added, “Rajkot will become the first Test match centre to implement the DRS system for the first time in India.”
