Good News "Limited" DRS To Be Used In Ranji Trophy Knockout Matches

[Image: hb39q8g_ranji-trophy-match-afp_625x300_1...size=555:*]

The BCCI has decided that the knockout matches in the Ranji Trophy tournament from this season onwards will see the usage of "limited" DRS. The limited DRS version will not comprise Hawk-Eye and UltraEdge, which are the two key elements of the system used in international cricket. Last year, poor umpiring marred the Ranji Trophy season. The most glaring umpire gaffe last season was when Cheteshwar Pujara was ruled not out despite a huge nick and his century changed the course of the Ranji Trophy semifinal between Saurashtra and Karnataka.

Saba Karim, BCCI's general manager of cricket, confirmed the development to ESPNcricinfo and said: "Last year, in some of the knockout matches, there was some flak on umpires because there were some terrible howlers."
