DRS debacle not rain delays start of Oz-Windies Test

Port of Spain, Wed, 18 Apr 2012 ANI

Port of Spain, Apr 18 (ANI): Power failure that knocked off television and camera coverage required for the Decision Review System (DRS), lopped off 20 minutes of play between Australia and West Indies during the second Test at the Queens Park Oval on Tuesday.

In a match, where just over four hours of play has been lost to rain thus far, and with the prospect of more delays to come if the weather forecast is correct, the play lost on Tuesday morning may come back to haunt both sides.

Play was set to start under blazing sunshine when players and umpires abruptly left the field, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

It was initially thought the Australians did not want to play without the review system in place though that was later proven to be untrue and that it was match referee Jeff Crowe's decision to halt proceedings so players and officials could discuss the situation.

It was also suggested the West Indies Cricket Board needed to consult the host broadcaster as to whether play could start without the telecast.

Umpires Marais Erasmus and Ian Gould addressed both sides during the break and it was agreed play would not start until power was restored to the cameras. (ANI)
