Hot Spot will be used in the final two Ashes Tests

The Decision Review System (DRS), and most significantly Hot Spot, has come under intense review during the series which will resume with the fourth Investec Test at Chester-le-Street on Friday.

Amid the controversy, the ICC has flown specialist Geoff Allardice to speak to both teams in discussions described as "very constructive".

Following those meetings the ICC confirmed that Hot Spot would be used in the final two Tests of a series England lead 2-0.
