New Delhi: The BCCI had made a presentation to the other member boards of the ICC on the controversial Umpire Decision Review System (DRS) to show how HotSpot technology had failed during India's tour of England, said President N Srinivasan.
He said the Indian board convinced the other member boards to end the mandatory use of DRS in international cricket and make it optional.
"The BCCI takes positions based not just on its own interests but also on its view on cricket. In England, everyone could see the problems with Hot Spot, so we took the matter up again. We made a presentation of the decisions that clearly showed that Hot Spot was lacking accuracy. That is what convinced the members to revert to an optional DRS," Srinivasan said.
