England wicketkeeper Matt Prior wonders if HotSpot can be trusted following a number of controversial decisions during The Ashes.

England wicketkeeper Matt Prior has suggested that certain technology within the Decision Review System cannot be trusted following issues with HotSpot.

The system, which uses infra-red images to detect whether the ball has been nicked by the batsmen, has come under fire following a number of controversial decisions during The Ashes.

"The communication between the players and umpires on the field is pretty good," Prior wrote in The Telegraph. "Ultimately we all want the right decisions to be made but I am not sure we trust HotSpot anymore. There are so many edges it has missed."

Reports have claimed that an official from the International Cricket Council will meet counterparts from England and Australia to discuss the recent issues.
