New Delhi: The BCCI has faced wide criticism for its stance on the Decision Review System but its reluctance towards the debated use of technology in cricket does not come without substance.
The Indian cricket team has felt hard done by the inconsistency of the system which has delivered contradicting decisions in the past. The most significant of those instances would be the match with England in the 2011 World Cup where the ball tracker showed that Ian Bell was trapped right in front of the wicket but the decision went in Bell's favour.
A similar decision in another match went in the bowler's favour much to the misery of the Indians who cried foul. "Adulteration of technology with human thinking cost us that wicket", said Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, in a statement which itself faced much criticism from the cricketing world.
