Video - John Emburey On DRS 'Anomalies'

Former England and Middlesex off-spinner John Emburey tells us that the Decision Review System (DRS) still needs some work to iron out what he calls 'anomalies'.

He makes the point that the introduction of the system changes the dynamics of the game with leg-before-wicket appeals now being scrutinised like never before.

Jokingly, he says that if he was umpire he would give everything out and put the pressure on the batsmen to use their reviews smartly.

However, he goes on to say that more thought is required to remove anomalies that he feels the DRS introduces into the game.

Emburey, who played 64 Tests and 61 One-Day Internationals for England between 1978 and 1995, was talking to us at an event held in London to celebrate this year's recently-concluded and upcoming Ashes series.
