Other cricket boards too objected to DRS, say BCCI sources
Mumbai: It was not only the Indian cricket board but few other boards too expressed reservations on implementing the much-debated Decision Review System (DRS) uniformly in all matches during the annual conference of International Cricket Council in London, sources said on Monday.
"Not only India, but other countries too (objected to its compulsory implementation) because it is not foolproof and there is a financial issue (related to it)," BCCI sources said.
The ICC conference concluded on Saturday.
According to the sources, the cost involved in implementing the DRS is USD 15,000-16,000 per day and the broadcast right holders are not willing to bear this extra cost.
As such, it will be the countries involved in bilateral series who would continue to take a call on whether to have DRS or not, the sources added.
The BCCI has steadfastly refused to have DRS in any series involving Indian team barring events organized by the International Cricket Council like the World Cup, Champions Trophy and World T20 Championship.
Meanwhile, the probe by BCCI`s Anti Corruption Unit chief Ravi Sawani into the alleged involvement of a few Rajasthan Royals` players in the IPL spot-fixing scandal is nearing completion and he`s expected to submit his report to the Board after examining Ajit Chandila, who is in jail at the moment.
"Sawani has completed (probing) four (players). Ajit Chandila is still in jail. His bail application may take a couple of days (to be approved). So we are expecting it in a couple of days` time. Others have all deposed," sources said.
Those who have deposed are S Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan, Sidharth Trivedi and alleged player-turned-bookie Amit Singh.
