Karachi: Feb 10, 2013

Pakistan has objected to the use of Hot Spot ball tracking technology and also to the appointment of umpire Steve Davis in the ongoing Test series in South Africa.

According to a report in the daily ‘Express’ newspaper today, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has written a letter to the International Cricket Council (ICC) outlining their objection to the use of the Hot Spot technology in the first Test against South Africa.

“The PCB wrote the letter to the ICC after the team management in South Africa requested the board to talk to the ICC over the use of the Hot Spot technology and the posting of Steve Davis in the series,” the report said.

Davis was the third umpire in the first Test in Johannesburg and many of the referral decisions went against Pakistan. Most of the referrals were adjudged with the help of the Hot Spot technology which appeared to be inconclusive at times.

“The team management have clearly stated they don’t want the ICC to post Steve Davis again in the series and that the Hot Spot technology should also be dropped for the remaining matches of the series,” the report added.

It said that the PCB had also asked the ICC to ensure that the Hot Spot technology was no longer used in the series but so far the ICC had not responded to their letter.

“The PCB is also unhappy with the way decisions went against their team in the first test and have told the ICC they feel the Hot Spot technology is not reliable,” the report stated.

The PCB in its letter has, however, made it clear they still support the use of the Decision Review System (DRS) but not Hot Spot in the series.
