New Delhi: The controversy surrounding the use of the Decision Review System (DRS) in matches involving India may soon end with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) reportedly agreeing on a revised template for the system.

According to reports, BCCI president Anurag Thakur has made it clear that the Indian borad is not averse to conditional DRS. But the use of Hawk-Eye still remains the main area of concern.

"You can have some and leave [Hawk-Eye]," Thakur told ESPNcricinfo in Florida during India's T20 series against West Indies this past weekend. "If that comes as an option, we can look into that."

Hawk-Eye, which is used primarily used in tennis, cricket, football, badminton and volleyball, used a tracking software to predict the future flight/trajectory part of the ball after it was impacted during play.

He reiterated the BCCI's longstanding opposition to Hawk-Eye, though, because it is not "100 percent foolproof".

PTI reports that, when he was asked specifically if the BCCI would accept the use of visual aids such as Hot Spot and real-time Snicko in addition to the standard camera angles, Thakur nodded in the affirmative.
