Mumbai: The Indian Cricket Board would again oppose the experimental rule of using two new white balls from either end of the ground in ODIs during the International Cricket Council's meeting in January next year, according to a BCCI official.

"It (the rule) is still under trial. In September, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh had opposed it. There will be a meeting (of ICC) in January, where BCCI will again oppose it," the source said.

BCCI's reservations regarding the use of two new balls is said to be due to its concern that India's spin-heavy attack will be rendered ineffective by this new ODI rule.
