Mumbai: Oct 8, 2011

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday, confirmed that HotSpot technology will be used sans the Decision Review System, for the upcoming One-Day International between Indian and England starting on October 14.

Earlier it was reported that DRS won t be used in the upcoming series owing to problems between the BCCI and makers of HotSpot technology.

“The DRS will not be used during the series following a decision by the developers of HotSpot not to make their infrared cameras available for the five-match series,” the ICC said on Friday.

The BCCI said: “The DRS will not be used during the ODI and T20 International series between India and England.”

The ICC, at its meeting in Hong Kong in July, had made HotSpot mandatory for DRS. With only India opposing the system, the ICC board may have two options: leave the matter to the home board of each series or in the hands of the teams that are taking part in a bilateral series. The ICC s decision will be known on Monday.
