Scandal casts a cloud over entire series after England retain the urn.
The future of the HotSpot technology has been placed in doubt after reports indicate batsmen in the current Ashes series are able to fool the system.
Media outlets in Australia have reported players have put silicone tape on the edges of their bats, with its use ‘fooling’ the cameras used as part of HotSpot.
The Hot Spot technology used under the DRS is an infra-red imaging system which is used to tell whether a batsman has hit a ball.
The ICC general manager of cricket Operations, Geoff Allardice, is in Durham for the fourth Test to investigate the matter.
Much of the drama centres around the second innings dismissal of England batsman Kevin Pietersen in the second innings at Old Trafford.
After appearing to edge through to the wicketkeeper, a confused Pietersen referred the decision of out on the field, after the standing umpire heard a noise.
On replay HotSpot showed no edged, but the original decision was upheld and Pietersen was forced to leave the field.
It is not yet know at this stage if it is Australia or English players allegedly involved.
The fourth Test match of the current series will get under way in Durham in Friday, with more information expected about the scandal before then.
