ICC investigating Hotspot misuse: report

The ICC is understood to be investigating the use of a silicone-based tape by batsmen in the Ashes series to prevent edges appearing on Hotspot technology.

The Nine Network reported that cricket's governing body was looking into its use - with suggestions players from both England and Australia would be fronted on the issue.

The Hotspot technology, which forms part of the decision review system, has come under fire during the Ashes series, with both teams complaining of inconsistencies in its use and application.

Technology is used to pick up a `hotspot' on a player's bat, its appearance or otherwise playing a part in whether a batsmen is given out if a decision goes to a review.
