Lalit Modi joins DRS debate, slams BCCI

Bureau Report

New Delhi: Former IPL chairman Lalit Modi slammed BCCI on its policy on the Decision Reviewing System, saying ICC is bowing down to the Indian board’s pressure, on Saturday.

“Its disappointing to see the BCCI continuing to turn its back on the wider use of the technology during India’s tour of England this summer,” Modi wrote on his website.

“DRS was in use and apparently working effectively during last winter`s Ashes series and the recent World Cup. Its also currently being used in the three-Test series between England and Sri Lanka. But it won’t be used in England because the BCCI continues to oppose technology the ICC clearly believes is reliable, accurate and significantly improves decision-making,” he added.

He said that its now high-time the ICC took a stand to invoke consistency across world cricket. “It is nonsense to allow an individual body to dictate an inconsistent policy to the rest of the world,” he said.
