Cricket: We Can Accept Hot Spot, Not Hawk's Eye - BCCI

Mumbai, Jun 18: The Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) has strongly opposed The International Cricket Council's (ICC) recommendation to make Umpire Decision Reference System (UDRS) mandatory in all format of the game.

BCCI secretary N Srinivasan, in a statement said that, BCCI has no problem with Snickometer or Hot Spot software, where 100% decision is taken electronically without human interference. But Board has problem with current system Hawk Eye software, where human interference is final.

He said that, BCCI will oppose the recommendation of ICC and provide enough reasons to substantiate the opposition.

It can be recalled that, Sachin Tendulkar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and other players have also voiced their concern over the current UDRS system.

Indian cricket board has not consented the use of DRS system in the ongoing West Indies series as well as forthcoming England tour.
