London: The cricket committee of the International Cricket Committee (ICC) on Wednesday came up with some radical suggestions, which if implemented, could see the game undergo a sea change in coming days.
The committee, following a two-day meeting in London which concluded on Wednesday, suggested that use of the controversial umpire Umpire Decision Review System (UDRS) be extended to ODIs as well as Twenty20 internationals besides use in all Test matches.
It also recommended use of two ball in each innings during ODIs, one from each end. Currently only one ball is being used and replaced after 34 overs of the innings.
"UDRS should be used in ODIs and T20I series with each side allowed one unsuccessful review per innings," the ICC said in a statement. However, it said it was the host board which should have the right to determine UDRS' use.
The recommendations made by the Cricket Committee, however, will not take effect until ratified and/or approved by the ICC's Chief Executives' Committee and the ICC executive board, both of which are scheduled to meet in Hong Kong from June 26 to 30.
The committee is chaired by former West Indies captain Cive Lloyd and it includes ex-Australia captain Mark Taylor, former South Africa opner Gary Kirsten, former India captain Ravi Shastri, ex-West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop and former captain of the England women's team Clare Connor.
