Technology

Use of technology a logical progression

George Binoy

The BCCI has finally agreed to accept the DRS, albeit a modified version without ball-tracking technology, but Pradeep Magazine, writing in the Hindustan Times, remains critical of India's behaviour and their attitude to technology.

The debate whether technology is foolproof or not has its merits, but when players and teams cry foul at umpiring errors and scream murder, it seems logical that anything available to assist the umpires in correcting their errors should be made use of. Especially by a country which believes there is much bias in the umpiring world against them and even goes public with their protests on the evidence of the same technology which they decry.
