Ian Chappell says ICC must apply DRS to every Test match

Former Australian cricketer Ian Chappell came out in support of DRS and said that the ICC needed to apply the system for every Test match. The Hindustan Times quoted him as saying, "The BCCI have finally relented and will now trial the Decision Review System for the England series. However, at the same time it should’ve insisted on the ICC applying the same laws to all Test matches."

Chappell went on to say that the ICC must look into providing the same standard of technology to all the nations irrespective of how rich or poor the board was. He said, "The ICC should provide the same high-standard technology for all matches. Having the rich countries utilising the best technology and the poorer nations using minimal equipment means the game is played under different laws in different parts of the world."
