CPL Should Consider Review System – Perreira

Icricket bat & balln light of several glaring mistakes at the level of the match officials, Guyanese commentator Joseph ‘Reds’ Perreira has suggested that the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) implement a review system for the next edition of the tournament.

Speaking exclusively to the Guyana Chronicle, the veteran commentator was firm in citing that the job of the standing officials in a T20 game is not a walk in the park. He indicated that there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration when umpiring.

“The umpires need as much support as possible. Umpiring T20 cricket is not easy with that kind of noise that is going on. The concentration has got to be at the highest. I think that the line calls are being looked after fine, but maybe the CPL can consider two reviews.

There were one or two crucial decisions that the general public has been talking about that didn’t go the way of the side bowling and maybe didn’t go the way of the side batting.”
