DRS unreliable in its present form: BCCI
New Delhi: Despite a flurry of media statements doing the rounds over the past few days regarding the controversy over DRS, BCCI has maintained a firm stand saying it does not trust the ball-tracking technology.
In a media statement on its website on Saturday, BCCI has said that “it (BCCI) does not accept the reliability of the ball-tracking technology, which is an integral part of the DRS”.
The Indian Cricket board’s continual denial over the usage of Decision Review System has met with severe criticism with players such as Graeme Swann claiming that the decision of not using the system might backfire on India.
Earlier, Sachin Tendulkar in an interview had expressed his support for DRS provided it was used in combination with Snickometer and Hot Spot Technology to give more accurate results.
A BCCI source, however, said that even if Sachin supports the system their stand would be the same.
