 The ICC has admitted its Playing Control Team (PCT) made "an honest error" while applying the DRS to the Jacques Kallis review on the second day of the Newlands Test and that the batsman was erroneously given out.Kallis, however, had an outburst about ball-tracking technology on South Africa's tour of New Zealand last March in which he said "99% of cricketers," do not trust it.

I think

I think its quite clear that the ICC admitted the PCT was at fault and not the 'DRS technology', which is what the BCCI has a problem with(that is where you are coming from). All the issues with DRS are only in its interpretation and implementation, and those will definitely improve with time.

@ Sulaimaan : That what BCCI

@ Sulaimaan : That what BCCI also says., Put the current DRS in domestic circuit, when it get improved and fixed in certain areas we can implement in International level.

Here SA team have taken it easily but not all the teams will do.

Many who back the DRS have

Many who back the DRS have been trying to get it across to the BBCI that pointing to one or two errors when using DRS is not a good enough reason to prevent its universal use.

a point to note: even a top

a point to note: even a top of the line Ferrari can be 'crashed' if it is driven by an IDIOT( in this case Steve Davis :D)) If that is the argument, then all of us will have to wait until someone INVENT A SMARTER HUMAN to use the DRS :D))

@ Hilal : DRS may have one or

@ Hilal : DRS may have one or more errors that's not at all the issue. But the interpretation of that by ICC is not correct. Kallis case is a simple example, we dont know how many to come.

If you dont teach a person to drive a ferrari and then you cant call him an Idiot for Crashing it. ICC is doing this as trail and error method. Which may go well with SA or AUS teams but with Indian team NO.
(I dont know how Kallis had taken it. If it was Virat in the place of Kallis !!! God bless Steve Davis)

@Sakthivel

Did the BCCI really suggest that???? if they did, it would be a very foolish suggestion.I dont think even the BCCI would think of it as a wise investment to use such expensive technology in its domestic Ranji Trophy.Cricket boards in SL,NZ,WI and Bang would struggle to have it even for their international fixtures.The only feasible solution is to implement the DRS uniformly in all matches which would enable it to be studied and scrutinized further, and improve in its decision making.That might also enable the ICC or cricket boards to get sponsors for the DRS.

Also, there has not been any problem in the 'interpretation by the ICC', its only an occasional implementation/interpretation problem with umpires.The DRS in its present state is perfectly fine.
