Kiwi Fleming welcomes India's move

“We had to accept it (DRS) one day. The use of technology has become a must in modern day cricket,” Fleming told reporters on the sidelines of a promotional programme which was also attended by New Zealand Prime Minister John Key at the Feroze Shah Kotla gound here.

Abandoning its rigid stand, the BCCI agreed to the mandatory use of the controversial DRS in a modified version at the ongoing ICC Annual Conference in Hong Kong on Monday.

The modified version, which was unanimously approved by the ICC’s chief executives’ committee on the second day of the conference, would have Hot-Spot technology but without the Hawk Eye ball-tracker, which means that the LBW decisions would not be within the purview of the DRS.

Fleming, however, was of the view that DRS was still not foolproof. “The technology is there to get rid of bad decisions. But there are some aspects which is not acceptable to some of the boards. It (UDRS) is a compromise until all the countries are totally convinced about it,” the Chennai Super Kings coach said.
