Jagmohan Dalmiya, the BCCI's interim president, has said that the board will accept the Decision Review System (DRS) only when the technology used is "fool-proof". Dalmiya said that the DRS has created confusion in its current form and the BCCI would adopt the technology once the system was "100% correct".

"We will accept DRS when technology is foolproof. There's nothing in between. Full stop," Dalmiya told the Indian Express. "Let them come up with a system which is 100% correct. They couldn't fix the Duckworth-Lewis problem in 15 years, what guarantee do we have about an error-free DRS? The Duckworth-Lewis method is beyond most of the players and administrators, let alone the common fans. I am still trying to figure out how a team total is increased on the basis of projection. The whole process is very complicated and confusing. And rather than solving the riddle, DRS creates more confusion in its present form."
