Retired Australian pacer, Mitchell Johnson has voiced out his opinion on the displeasure of the decision review system (DRS) and said that the on field decisions should be left to the umpires to decide and their decision should be respected.
Mitchell Johnson retired from international cricket after playing the historic and the very first day night Test against New Zealand at Adelaide last year.
Previously BCCI stood against the use of DRS in international cricket and now they seem to have found a supporter in Mitchell Johnson who added saying, “If we can make sure that technology is used to get the right decision every time, then that’s great. But until then, I’m not so sure.”
Johnson joined the criticism against DRS following Adam Voges’s controversial dismissal in the Wellington Test against New Zealand.
He was happy that all prevailed well at last and the century by Adam Voges went on to be a match winning one. He said, “It worked out pretty well for ‘Vogesy’ and I’m really happy for him but as a bowler, I can tell you its very annoying when I see that stuff happen”.
Mitchell Johnson who is one of the players to be retained by Kings XI Punjab to for the ninth IPL season, said that he was pretty happy with the way he was shaping up for the IPL.
“Just this week, I shook off the cobwebs by having a bowl in the nets and I was pleased to discover that I still had the competitive edge in me”, said Johnson.
