This month at the Men’s T20 World Cup in Oman and the United Arab Emirates, its review system (TRS) will be introduced. The ICC announced earlier this week that the TRS would be introduced at the upcoming showcase in sports conditions for the event. The Men’s T20 World Cup will be held from October 17 to November 14. According to an ESPNcricinfo report, each team receives a maximum of two reviews per innings.
The governing body in June last year confirmed an additional failed TRS rating for each team in all tournaments, citing “Covid-19-related” reasons that sometimes there may be less experienced referees on duty.
Thus, the number of failed appeals per team per innings has increased to two in white-ball formats and three in Test matches.
The TRS was not part of the previous Men’s T20 World Cup because the review system did not apply to the T20s in 2016, when the Marquee event last took place.
TRS appeared for the first time in the IRC T20 tournament at the 2018 Women’s T20 World Cup in the Caribbean. The system was used again at the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia.
