Australian captain Ricky Ponting said on Tuesday that the International Cricket Council (ICC) should ensure the decision review system is used in every Test series.
The referral system is not used in Australia’s current two-match series against Pakistan as the Pakistan Cricket Board was not prepared to meet the additional costs involved.
Ponting feels there should be some consistency in the execution of the review system.
“Look I got my point across at the referees’ meeting before this series ... I just think probably even the ICC could have stepped in on this occasion.”
“It is a financial thing at the end of the day, that is the reason we are not using it.
“So I thought the ICC could have come in and done something about it but it has not eventuated and that is just the way it is. So we just have to get on with it.
