The world’s richest cricket board skimps, no money for DRS technology in Ranji Trophy?

Bangalore: By the way, BCCI is the richest cricket board in the world. But it seems that BCCI does not have the money to use the Decision Review System (DRS) in the finals of the country’s biggest domestic tournament. The title battle between multiple-time champion Mumbai and Madhya Pradesh, which reached the final after three decades, continues at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

big matches ‘big mistake’
Mumbai batsman Sarfaraz Khan, who has been in excellent form, survived a close lbw. He was trapped by pacer Gaurav Yadav on the first day of the match, but the umpire did not give out. This decision may decide the fate of the final. In a special conversation with our colleague Times of India, BCCI officials say that we have faith in our umpires. DRS is an expensive technology. What if the final doesn’t have this technique? During this, we have entrusted the responsibility to two of India’s best umpires (KN Ananthapadmanabhan and Virender Sharma).

Earning 50 thousand crores still skimpy
A former Indian cricketer said that if you want to use the DRS technique in the final, why can’t you do it in the league stage. If BCCI, which earned Rs 48,390 crore by selling media rights of IPL, is not adopting DRS technique citing expenses, then nothing can be a shameful thing.

DRS is expensive technology

“Wiring and derigging of each machine is very costly,” said an expert with knowledge of the matter. Hawkeye means the need for extra cameras. Ranji Trophy is played with limited equipment. The argument then would be why not use it for all televised games. If you have to bring DRS, you cannot bring it with incomplete technology. Last time it was used for limited replays. In a match, for 2 camera setup, 6 thousand dollars and four sets cameras have to spend 10 thousand dollars + hotspaw i.e. a total of 16000 dollars i.e. 12 and a half lakh rupees, which is a big amount.

Test star Cheteshwar Pujara was given life twice (caught back) while playing for Saurashtra in the semi-finals in the 2018-19 season, which cost rivals Karnataka the loss of the match.

However, in this DRS used in the Ranji Trophy, players did not have the option of using Hawk Eye, nor UltraEdge and Sneakometer, which are considered important weapons of DRS in international cricket.
