Cricket's DRS system in spotlight after Khawaja's dismissal in third Ashes Test
Cricket's controversial Decision Review System (DRS) has again made headlines following the controversial dismissal of Australian batsman Usman Khawaja on the first day of the third Ashes Test at Old Trafford. Does the DRS need to be changed? Or are dismissals like Khawaja's just part of the game?
