CHENNAI - Cricket players will be allowed to challenge close umpiring calls after the controversial video review system was cleared by the sport's governing body.

The experiment allowing players a set number of unsuccessful challenges per innings was tested in four Test series before it came up for review last month.

The International Cricket Council approved the review system on a permanent basis at its board meeting in London. It will kick in from October. Opinions on the system among players have been mixed. - Reuters
