ICC Should not be Dictated by BCCI - Lalit Modi

Daijiworld Media Network - London

London, Jun 18 : The self-exiled , former supremo of the  Indian Premier  League,  Lalit Modi has come down heavily on  the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)  for opposing the  Decision Review System (DRS ) in the upcoming England Cricket series.
Writing on his website, Modi has said that the  BCCI is trying to dictate terms as usual, and at any cost the International Cricket Council ( ICC)  should not allow BCCI to dominate the world Cricket Body, he said.

"It is disappointing to see the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) turn its back on the wider use of technology during India’s tour of England. DRS was in use and apparently worked effectively in last winter's Ashes series and the recent World Cup," Modi wrote on his website.

"It is 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 the technology ICC clearly believes is reliable, accurate and significantly improves decision-making."

"It is 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.

"DRS was considered reliable enough for the World Cup and the technology should now be fully embraced. Otherwise, the public will lose faith in a product. Cricket must use it or risk its credibility. The ICC cannot let the BCCI dictate any longer."
