Sammy welcomes DRS move

“My experience is that it minimises errors. It’s a good thing that ICC has brought it into place, it lessens mistakes in a game,” stated Sammy ahead of the second Test here on Tuesday.

An ICC meeting in Hong Kong has made the significant decision of DRS being implemented across the globe, though the use of the controversial tracker system would depend on the two respective boards in a bilateral series.

The Indians have consistently opposed the DRS primarily because they were not convinced of the tracker system, which decides the trajectory and angle of a delivery after pitching. The series between India and England would see the DRS system being introduced but without the tracker system in place.

“I remember against Pakistan we saw a lot of leg before decisions which might not have been given out otherwise. I don’t know how the technology works but it means less bad decisions.”

Sammy’s prime concern ahead of the second Test was the form of his batsmen. “Batsmen have to come to party, bowling hasn’t been our problem. But it’s the batters who haven’t been scoring runs for the better part of last decade.

“At times, things look in control of batsmen. Then they suddenly lose it. We don’t have the confidence to win key moments. We are not able to put the last nail in the coffin.”
