The International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executives' Committee (CEC) has recommended that the Decision Review System (DRS) should be mandatory for all Tests and One-Day Internationals.

The CEC will now recommend this to the ICC Board as well as recommending that 'hotspot' cameras must be included and a minor change to LBW protocols, whereby the 'margin of uncertainty' regarding the point of impact with the batsman should be the same as that provided for the point of impact with the stumps.

"We have made good progress in independently testing ball tracking and the new enhancements has resulted in the CEC unanimously supporting the ICC Cricket Committee’s recommendation to universally apply the DRS in all Test matches and ODIs," ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat said following the two-day meeting in Kuala Lumpur.

The CEC has also recommended that the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) and Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) put in place anti-corruption codes, with SLC being requested to act urgently ahead of the scheduled Sri Lankan Premier League in August. The CEC has also requested a report on alleged corrupt activities during the Bangladesh Premier League.

After the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) made a request to play six Twenty20 Internationals against Australia in the United Arab Emirates in August, the CEC took into account the extreme daytime heat at this time in the UAE and raised no objections to the proposal.

The ICC Board meets on 26th and 27th June.
