Melbourne: The latest fiasco with the Decision Review System (DRS) in the Ashes has led the International Cricket Council (ICC) to re-think the increase of number of unsuccessful reviews awarded to a team per innings.

"DRS has always been a work in progress and it's improving all the time. If we can improve the protocols with the way we use it, then I think we'll be looking at it," Dave Richardson, ICC chief executive, was quoted saying in the Sydney Morning Herald.

The ICC have refused to scrap the technology despite controversy during the Ashes and continuous opposition from the Board of Control for Cricket in India. 

"Errors are always going to be made, DRS corrects most of them. We've got meetings coming up in September and October where it will probably be discussed on a more formal basis," he said.

The ICC is planning to have a system similar to major tennis tournaments where players are awarded an extra review if the match is stretched to the tie-breaker. Richardson suggested that teams can be given extra reviews after 80 overs when the ball is due for a change.
