ICC to share new research results on DRS with BCCI
Wednesday 11 July 2012

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has decided to send a delegation to India to show the latest research on ball-tracking technology by Dr Ed Rosten, after the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) objection resulted in the Decision Review System (DRS) not being put to vote at the executive board meeting in Kuala Lumpur last month.

The research by Rosten, who is an expert in computer vision technology, was left off the agenda of the ICC executiveboard meeting.

"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," the Daily Times quoted Cricket Australia (CA) chairman Wally Edwards, as saying.

"India have agreed and the boards have agreed for (the) 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 added.

Edwards further said that it was not just India but others too were skeptical about the technology.

"India are willing to look at it, but they're skeptical, 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," he said.

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.

"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," he added.
