The Pakistan Super League (PSL) Chairman Najam Sethi has revealed that the PSL is all set to use the Decision Review System (DRS) in its playoff matches. Hence becoming the first  T20 league in the history of cricket to use technology.

Announcing the same via his Twitter account, Sethi wrote, “Another first from HBL PSL. DRS to be used in the playoff matches.”

The development came in the wake of multiple poor on-field judgments made by umpires during the ongoing tournament.

As a result, the DRS will allow the teams to question the on-field umpire’s decision,the Dawn reported.

Under the DRS technology, both teams will be allowed a limited number of unsuccessful challenges before they will be barred from requesting any more referral for the rest of the innings.

In Play-offs, Quetta will take on Peshawar at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Tuesday while Islamabad United will face Karachi Kings in the second match at the same venue a day after.
