Rivals Pakistan and Sri Lanka have demanded mandatory video technology after several umpiring blunders in the first Test of the ongoing series, placing themselves squarely in opposition to India`s powerful board.

The Decision Review System, which uses ball tracking and thermal imaging to verify umpires` decisions, was recommended for mandatory use by cricket chiefs earlier in the week, subject to member nations financing the technology.

However, Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene said he wants the International Cricket Council to pay for the technology if individual boards, such as his own, cannot afford to fund it when they host touring teams.

Mohammad Hafeez, captaining Pakistan in Galle in the absence of Misbah ul-Haq, said the uncertainty about the video referral technology should end.
