Prior: Players left frustrated by DRS inaccuracies

England wicketkeeper Matt Prior has admitted the players’ frustrations with the inaccuracies of the DRS system, with the current Ashes series beset by controversial decisions.

Yesterday’s action in the third Test at Old Trafford included Australia’s David Warner being given not out, despite evidence suggesting he had been caught behind. “There was disbelief because he hit it, and that’s why we referred it,” Prior, above, said. “We were adamant he had hit it and Snicko showed he had hit it. The decision didn’t go our way.

“It’s pretty frustrating for everyone. Whether the technology needs to be looked at, or how they use it, I don’t know. For the players at the moment, that is the biggest frustration.”

Australia ended day four on 172 for 7, a lead of 331 – although rain is forecast for today’s final day. MORE
