The shock revelation that no ball calling technology hasn't worked all Test during the opening match of the Ashes series could be just the tip of the iceberg for cricket officials at the Gabba.

As picked up on the broadcast of Day 2 at the Gabba yesterday, Stokes bowled a handful of no balls in a row before being called for a wicket-taking delivery to David Warner.

ICC policy currently dictates that all no balls shall be called by the third umpire, who will have a constant feed of the front foot for each ball of the match.

That technology - and feed to the third umpire however - was revealed to be not working, with the teams and match reverting to old playing conditions where umpires can refer specific deliveries - wicket taking balls - to the third umpire for adjudication.

It meant Stokes was caught overstepping on four separate occasions before dismissing Warner yesterday.

However, The Daily Telegraph have revealed that's not the only problem confronting the officials at the Gabba during the opening match of the biggest series on the planet.

The publication reports the Real Time Snicko - which is used for LBW and caught behind referrals as a way of detecting any sound at the wicket when the ball passes the bat - has also been malfunctioning.

It has already failed on two reviews in this Test - an LBW shout on Steve Smith yesterday, and on Day 1 when Australia reviewed a caught behind referral.

It's understood the technology crashed in the first hour of play and as yet, attempts to restore it to service have been yet to prove successful.

With the technology failed and seemingly no way of restoring it, the final three days at the Gabba - should the match go that far - will be played under something of a cloud.

Given the same technology providers will be used throughout the entire series travelling from state to state, it could be a headache for the ICC, Cricket Australia and the England Cricket Board moving forward too if the technology can't be restored in time for the second Test in Adelaide, which starts just a handful of days after the first in Brisbane ends, and will be played as a day-night encounter with pink balls.
