Former players like Anil Kumble can influence BCCI on DRS, feels ICC

India, along with Sri Lanka, were the first users of the DRS in 2008, when Kumble was India's captain. Since technology then was not as enhanced as it is now, Richardson said it could take longer to convince the BCCI, the only Board not to have accepted DRS.

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.
