New Delhi: The ICC's Chief Executives Committee (CEC) has once again attempted to push the Decision Review System towards universal application in international cricket, recommending it to the ICC's Executive Board following fresh and successful testing of DRS technology. However, the BCCI - which has long opposed DRS - immediately responded by saying its stand remained unchanged, putting the proposal into serious doubt.
"The BCCI continues to believe that the system is not foolproof," a release said. "It also sticks to its view that the decision on whether or not to use the DRS for a particular series should be left to the boards involved in that series."
The Hot Spot cameras - which had been made mandatory following the 2011 ICC conference in June, only to be taken off the list in October - have now been included as part of the mandatory requirements for the DRS.
