Board is rigid

Calcutta/New Delhi: India has threatened to pull out of any tour in which the host country insists on using the Decision Review System, according to a report in a website.

The report says that BCCI president Narayanswamy Srinivasan, at the ICC exceutive council meeting in Dubai, has shot down a proposal in favour of a policy change where the approval of the host country would be enough to implement the DRS.

The report said that ECB chairman Giles Clarke was the lone man who spoke in favour of a policy change regarding the implementation of DRS.

Meanwhile, at the meeting the ICC decided to allocate $1.8 million to crisis-hit New Zealand as part of the Targeted Assistance and Performance Programme . "NZC has been allocated $1.8m, which represents $0.6m for each of the next three years," the ICC said in a statement.
