Doubts about Using the DRS at the start of Bangladesh vs West Indies 2021 Series
Before the start of the Bangladesh vs West Indies ODI Series 2021 starting from January 20, 2021, there is a risk of suffering due to the use of the Decision Review System DRS. There are complications in the quarantine issue of an English engineer who was originally in charge of DRS. The series plans to use 26 cameras in three ODIs and two Tests. Drones required to use Spider Cam. And government permission is also required to fly drones in the sky. BCB is also trying to do that.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced the name of the official broadcaster of the Bangabandhu Bangladesh vs West Indies series. Sports management company Ban-Tech Limited has got the broadcasting rights, all the matches of the ODI series between Bangladesh vs West Indies 2021 Live Streaming will be seen on T-Sports and Citizen TV. However, there are early doubts about the DRS due to the quarantine complexity of the British engineer.
The government has made 14-day quarantine mandatory for anyone from England. However, subject to special permission, the quarantine has been relaxed by several British coaching staff of the BCB.
The BCB is following the same path in the case of British engineers managing DRS. BCB media committee chairman Jalal Yunus told the media at the Westin Hotel in the capital today (January 18).
He said, ‘DRS must be there. However, one of the issues of DRS in the BAN vs WI 2021 ODI series is that our engineer is supposed to come from London. You know that England has the Covid Protocol. The first 4 days out of 14 days must be in isolation, which means 4 days in government isolation.
‘You can stay in your own system for another 10 days. This is 14 days. But we have applied to the Ministry of Health for this. At the same time, we have spoken with the Covid Authority who looks after it. So let’s see what happens now. But if we can do an engineer on time, maybe on the 20th, maybe we will have a problem.
‘If we can finish everything in time then maybe DRS won’t be a problem. Otherwise, the problem of DRS will be solved after this match.
