Dubious DRS comes back to haunt Australia again


//

Australian Test greats Mark Waugh and Brett Lee have questioned the merits of the DRS after another decision went Pakistan's way during day 3 of the third Test.

The incident took place during the second session of day 3 with Australia pressing for wickets as Nathan Lyon appeared to have trapped Babar Azam in front.

However, despite the ball not turning in an alarming manner, Hawkeye deemed that the ball would have spun past the leg stump, leaving Waugh confused.

"I didn't think it was spinning that far," Waugh said on Fox Sports' coverage.

"The technology is supposed to be pretty accurate, but there's been a couple of occasions in this Test match, maybe my eyes are deceiving me, where it just hasn't quite looked right to me."

Waugh's former teammate and co-panellist Lee also agreed saying that the decision didn't look right, and mentioned how the grey area of the review system was problematic. 

"That's the technology that we want to continue to enjoy watching and liking," Lee said.

"We've got to back the technology but it's the whole three-metre rule, whether it's bounced too much, where they let go of the ball. I think there's a lot of grey area."

The controversial call came once after Australia was seemingly denied by the three-metre rule on a decision review late on day 2.
