Though the Day 2 of West Indies vs Pakistan second Test got washed out due to rain, the host players made sure they enjoyed the day to the fullest. After rain saw not a single ball bowled on the day, the Windies team decided to play on their own inside the dressing room, the video of which is now getting viral on social media.
On Saturday, the West Indies players enacted a hilarious DRS scenario in the dressing room. During the game, a delivery from pacer Chemar Holder was left by batsman Jomel Warrican after which the other players of team started appealing for an LBW. After adjudged out by the fellow players, Warrican opted for a DRS. What followed was more hilarious as Warrican and other players could be seen recreating the scene to come to a conclusion. Eventually, the decision was overturned and Warrican survived.
When was DRS introduced in cricket?
DRS was first introduced in 2008 during India's Test series against Sri Lanka at SSC, Colombo. Since then, several changes have been brought into the way DRS is being taken and some facilities to it has been added to make the game much fairer. DRS has always been into the limelight since its introduction in cricket. This is because it plays a pivotal role in the game. It not only helps a player to save his or her wicket when 'not-out' or a team to get a wicket it deserves, but also saves the umpires from landing at the receiving end of the criticism after a wrong decision. What adds fun to the game is the fact that every team has limited number of DRS for an innings and the use of it, at times, decide the fate of the game. The recent review taken by India in the last innings at Lord's to get the wicket of Ollie Robinson could be a telling example of that.
