This incompetent SL cricket board is the laughing stock in the cricket world.
Upali Dharmadasa, the SLC interim committee chairman, told ESPNcricinfo on Saturday: "The use of UDRS is a priority for us since the decision was taken, during the ICC annual conference in Hong Kong, to use it in all series, which all the members agreed to."
A revised version of the DRS, including Hot Spot but not ball-tracking technology, has been made mandatory for all Tests and one-day internationals by the ICC. National boards can decide whether to add the ball-tracking tools. Dharmadasa said SLC still had a few questions about the DRS that would be resolved by next week. "Regarding the predictive path, we have written to the ICC and the final decision will be taken at the SLC meeting on Wednesday."
The Sri Lankan board has been facing financial difficulties after cost overruns in building stadiums for the 2011 World Cup. Last month, SLC slashed its budget for the tour from 300 million rupees down to 100 million rupees, after the sports minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage said austerity measures had to be taken. Dharmadasa, however, said "funding for UDRS is not an issue."
Australia arrive in Sri Lanka at the end of this month for a full tour, including two Twenty internationals, five ODIs and three Tests.
