Proteas again call for more use of referral system

Proteas again call for more use of referral system

South Africa has repeated its call for the umpiring referral system to be used more after being on the wrong end of three mistakes in an 87-run loss to India in the second test.
South Africa captain Graeme Smith says the ICC needs to "take responsibility" for deciding when the Umpire Decision Referral System is used, arguing that its occasional use "is not going to benefit anybody."
ICC rules mean both teams have to agree to using UDRS, which allows players to challenge umpires' decisions.
India opted against it in South Africa and benefited when Zaheer Khan was given not out when replays showed he was plumb lbw.
Proteas batsmen A.B. de Villiers and Mark Boucher were given out to balls that were missing the stumps.
