Snicko to be used for the rest of the series

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates,  CMC- The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced yesterday that Real-Time Snickometer (RTS) will be part of the Decision Review System (DRS) in the remaining two Tests between New Zealand and West Indies to be played in Wellington and Hamilton.

The RTS has been included as part of the DRS following an initial approach from the teams and their subsequent agreement after briefings in Wellington yesterday.

It will be part of the decision-making technology that will be used by Sky Television’s coverage of the series, and also includes Virtual Eye (ball tracking technology) and Hot Spot.

The RTS is not yet approved but the ICC commenced the process of evaluating it for inclusion following ICC Chief Executives’ Committee’s meeting in September during which broad support was shown for the new technology.
