The Indian Cricket Board would again oppose the under-trialled 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.

The Indian Board had expressed its reservation on the rule in September at the ICC Chief Executives meeting.

However, Australia, New Zealand and England were among those in favour of using two new balls, while West Indies and South Africa abstained from voting.

For any change in the existing rule, a two-third majority vote ie required under the ICC constitution.
