Lorgat lauds Murali

Galle: The CEO of International Cricket Council, Haroon Lorgat, lauded Sri Lanka for producing a cricketing legend.

Speaking to presspersons here on Thursday, he said, “What a way to exit from international cricket for Muralitharan! He could not have planned it better.

“We were all hoping somebody does not take a wicket at the other end so that Muralitharan could get his 800th wicket. I congratulate him and SriLanka.”

About UDRS

Speaking about the Umpire Decision Review System — it has not been implemented in the on-going series after opposition from India — Lorgat said, “We are looking to take it forward. We presently have 92 per cent correct decisions.

“With the use of UDRS, this increases to 98 per cent. The ICC is seeking to put together all the technology available.”

He said the host association and the official broadcaster foot the bill for the UDRS which includes the expensive hotspot technology. — Special Correspondent
