New Delhi: ICC Chief Executive Dave Richardson has suggested that India's bad experience of the Decision Review System when it was first trialled might have played a part in BCCI's refusal to accept the controversial technology.
Richardson said it could take a long time for the BCCI to accept DRS and former players like Anil Kumble, who is now ICC Cricket Committee chairman, can play a role in influencing the Indian Board.
"They are a long way from saying 'it's a good idea'. I don't think it's necessarily only the administrators, say people like Anil Kumble for example. He's going to take some persuading," Richardson said.
