DRS likely to be used in IPL 9
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) which has strongly opposed the use of the Decision Review System (DRS) so far, might use it in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Rajeev Shukla, the chairman of the IPL Governing Council, said that the discussion for the use of DRS has started, but with limited use."There is a proposal to use DRS in the IPL minus the Leg Before Wicket (LBW) referrals. We have just started discussing it," he said in Mumbai on Friday (January 29).
Earlier, Shashank Manohar, the BCCI President, too had suggested the possible use of DRS without the ball-tracking technology.
This comes as a major shift from the stand taken by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India skipper, over the use of technology. Despite numerous key decisions going against India and a few in India's favour during the recently-concluded One-Day International (ODI) series against Australia, Dhoni wasn't too keen on the use of technology, unless it was fool-proof.
