BCCI earned several thousand crores by auctioning media rights, but there is no money for DRS in Ranji, shameful

The Cricket Board of India (BCCI) has become the richest cricket board in the world after selling the media rights of the Indian Premier League (IPL) for 48000 crores. But despite this, the board has had to be embarrassed in the final match of Ranji Trophy 2022. The Decision Review System (DRS) is not available in this match between Madhya Pradesh and Mumbai being played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Live telecasting and streaming of this final match are being done. But DRS is not. According to reports, this has happened because DRS technology is very expensive and BCCI does not want to use it in Ranji. The Board had used 'limited DRS' during the semi-finals and finals of the Ranji Trophy 2019-20. Hawk-Eye and UltraEdge technology were also used in this. But this year the board has not done so.

The Madhya Pradesh team, playing the final for the first time, has suffered due to the absence of DRS. In fact, Mumbai's inform batsman Sarfaraz Khan, who scored one century after another this season, was out lbw off the ball of fast bowler Gaurav Yadav. But the umpire gave him 'life' by giving him a not-out. It was clearly visible in the replays that he was out.

Giving such life to a batsman like Sarfaraz has weighed heavily on MP and he has once again scored a century. Sarfaraz has scored 123 runs in this match so far and Mumbai has scored 357 runs for the loss of 9 wickets. Let us tell you that two of India's best umpires KN Ananthapadmadmanabhan and Virender Sharma are officiating in this match.

DRS is a very expensive technology. That's why this feature is not available in all matches. For this, two different setups of two and four cameras are installed. In these, it costs 6 thousand dollars and 10 thousand dollars for 2 camera setup. Machine wiring and derigging are very expensive. Apart from this, extra cameras are installed for Hawkeye. In such a situation, it costs about 16 thousand dollars i.e. 12 lakh rupees.
