ICC reduces referral in umpiring trial

The ICC today announced that the ongoing trial of the umpire decision review system will be reduced to two unsuccessful reviews from three each side per innings after receiving initial feedback from players and match officials. The game’s world governing body said both West Indies and England have approved the change and if it proved to be a successful modification in the first two Tests of the West Indies-England series, it will then be tried one last time in Australia’s tour of South Africa.
