New Delhi - The Board of Control for Cricket in India have agreed to use
the Decision Review System on a trial basis for the upcoming series against
England at home.
According to the BCCI they will evaluate the improvements
made in the system since India last agreed to its use back in 2008.
BCCI president Anurag Thakur said: "We are happy to
note that Hawkeye has institutionalised all the recommendations made by BCCI,
and we confirm that this improved version of DRS will be used on a trial basis
during the forthcoming series against England.
"Based on the performance of the system and the
feedback that we will receive, further continuation in forthcoming series will
be decided. We recognise the enhanced role of technology in sport, and BCCI
will lead such initiatives in coming days, and enrich the viewer
The BCCI had previously stated that it would not use DRS
until the system was 100% accurate but feedback from India's players seems to
have convinced Thakur and company to rethink the situation.
