Research on DRS to change BCCI's stance?
New Delhi, Jul 10: After recommending the use of Decision Review System in all Tests and ODIs, International Cricket Council has decided to show the Indian Cricket Board the research on ball-tracking by Dr Rosten, following BCCI's reluctance to accept DRS.

ICC is expected to send a delegation to India to show the research done by an expert in computer vision technology, Dr Ed Rosten to BCCI as their stance on DRS remained unchanged.

Cricket Australia chairman Wally Edwards feels that the research done by Rosten would change BCCI's perspective on DRS.

"ICC had got some independent research done on the accuracy and all those issues. Now unfortunately they didn't present that information to the board," Edwards said.

"India have agreed and the boards have agreed for ICC management to go to India and take all the information, take their presentations, take their technical support and talk to them over there," he told 'ESPNcricinfo'.

Edwards further added saying that it was not BCCI alone but various other boards had expressed their views on DRS and were not happy with the review system.

"India are willing to look at it, but they're sceptical, and others are too - it's not just India. I think it is part of the game for the future, but it's a good time to review.

"Unfortunately if that presentation, or whatever it is they had, had been presented to the board it might have changed things."

The research will be shown alongside details of the enhancements made to Hot Spot, the infrared cameras used to detect edges that had their accuracy questioned after the 2011 Test series between England and India.

Edwards also hopes that the research on ball-tracking would change India's stance on DRS.

"It looks accurate, but from their point of view they are reluctant just to accept it as gospel. I think it is possible they'll change, but we'll have to wait and see how they go with this new information in India."
