Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar has backed the use of the Umpire Decision Review System (UDRS) and feels it should be used on a permanent basis to avoid hampering the performance of the umpires.

Dar, a three-time International Cricket Council (ICC) Umpire of the Year, feels the technology will do good to the game and a consistent use of the DRS could prove to be beneficial.

"There's no issue in using technology," Dar was quoted as saying in The Express Tribune. "It's a good addition to the game but the umpires should stop thinking about it when making a decision.

"The DRS should be applied on a permanent basis. It's not being used in all series and that affects the umpires' performance."
