India warms up to DRS Empty India warms up to DRS

with srinivasan gone and Dhoni about to play his farewell series...DRS will come in albeit cautiously and rightly so.

India's objection to LBW is legitimate and it's not so much for the doubt of technology but the lack of consistency in decisions based on this " Umpires Call" thingy for LBWs.

I personally doubt the technology on LBWs also i.e the amount of deviation to swing and spin the extrapolated trajectory of the ball is not appropriately calibrated from one ultra seaming pitch to a square turner...
nevertheless the latter  at least would be consistently inaccurate all the time during that game..for both the sides
The comments have come in the wake of few umpiring howlers in the ongoing One-day series in Australia.

Going by a senior Indian cricket body official's comments on Monday that "the board is open to discuss Decision Review System (DRS) without the leg-before decisions", it may relax its stand against the much-debated television reviews in coming days.

The comments have come in the wake of few umpiring howlers in the ongoing One-day series in Australia. In the first ODI, George Bailey clearly nicked one off Barinder Sran to skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni off the first ball and was ruled not out. Australia were 21 for two then and the batsman went on to score a century and his team won the match.

In the third tie also, Bailey was adjudged not out due to lack of DRS. The Board of Control for Cricket in India's secretary Anurag Thakur said that they may give the system a shot if the ball tracking technology to determine leg-before decision is taken out of the equation.

"The DRS is not 100 per cent accurate. It's not fully secured. We have reservations about the LBW decisions. But, apart from it, there could be a rethink on other issues concerning the DRS by the BCCI. We will definitely look into it when the Indian team comes back from Australia," Thakur said here during an ICC promotional event on Monday.

Thakur's viewpoint is in sync with the BCCI president Shashank Manohar, who recently spoke about using DRS without leg-before using Ball Tracker.

"Actually, BCCI was never against DRS, right from my earlier tenure. Only issue was with LBW being decided by DRS. For everything else, we accepted but the ICC told us that either we accept it in full or not. We are not willing to accept it for LBW," Manohar had said.

India's Test skipper Virat Kohli is also not averse to discussions on usage of the technology. However, ODI captain MS Dhoni has his reservations.

After India's defeat in the first match in the ongoing series, Dhoni had said,"We need to push the umpires to make the right decisions. You have to see how many 50-50 decisions don't go in our favour. It always happens, then you have to take it. But I am still not convinced about DRS."

However, with Dhoni era now almost over and call for his removal as captain is going to get louder after the ODI series loss in Australia, there is every likelihood that India may accept DRS in one form or the other.

New coach after T20 WC
BCCI secretary also hinted that a full-time coach for Team India will be appointed after the completion of T20 World Cup and a meeting of high-profile advisory committee comprising Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly would be convened soon.
