Two contentious DRS decisions exacerbated Australia’s heavy defeat by South Africa, and Marnus Labuschagne says the ICC needs to clarify them.

Australia News, Australia Headlines

Leading batsman Marnus Labuschagne expects that Australia will ask the ICC to clarify two DRS decisions against teammates Steve Smith and Marcus Stoinis that compounded further aSouth Africa made late and seeming speculative referrals after Smith was given not out lbw to seamer Kagiso Rabada, and after Stoinis was declared not out to a leg-side wicketkeeper’s catch, also from Rabada.

“It was certainly confusing and I’m sure we’ll seek clarity,” said Labuschagne. “It’s a World Cup. We don’t want small decisions that can be avoided to change the outcome of the game. In our situation, it’s hard to say it was going to change the outcome, but for the future, you certainly want to make sure we get them right.”

“From front on, it looked like it was going down leg straight away. I said to Steve, ‘I don’t think it’s close’. I felt like the angle was pushing down leg.“It looked like it must have hit him on the leg and then almost straightened onto the stumps. It wasn’t what it looked out there, but I can’t argue with technology - or not right now.”

“We’ve faced two polar opposite extremes: heavy spin conditions against two of the best spinners India’s ever produced, and then here, against the seaming swinging ball against a team that’s very good in those conditions,” he said.
