Sri Lanka Cricket have announced that the Decision Review System would be used for the series against Australia.
Sri Lanka Cricket said it has no issues with the estimated cost of USD 5,000 per day for having DRS in place for the series next month.
“The use of DRS 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,” said SLC interim committee chairman Upali Dharmadasa.
“Regarding the predictive path, we have written to the ICC and the final decision will be taken at the SLC meeting on Wednesday.”
“Funding for UDRS is not an issue,” he added.
Earlier, there were reports that Sri Lanka Cricket would not have the Decision Review System in place for the series due to lack of money.
Australia will be in Sri Lanka by end of this month for two Twenty internationals, five ODIs and three Tests.
