Jagmohan Dalmiya will represent India at the ICC annual conference in London on June 25. The BCCI’s interim head also indicated that he would be going there with an open mind,regarding the DRS issue. “We work on cooperation with the ICC. Our primary target is to clean up cricket. DRS too is a cricketing issue and we will decide on this after reaching there. We want cooperation from the ICC and its other members on everything,” Dalmiya told The Indian Express.

Just a few days back BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel was quoted as saying that India would continue to oppose the uniform implementation of Decision Review System (DRS) in bilateral series. But Dalmiya,a former ICC president,gave an impression that he would rather prefer a less confrontational approach. India is the only Test-playing country not to accept the DRS as the BCCI’s president in exile N Srinivasan has never been convinced about its “ball-tracking technology”.

As far as attending the ICC meeting is concerned,Dalmiya said: “I will attend the annual conference and the board meeting,while Sanjay Patel will attend the CEO’s meeting.”

Srinivasan speculation

Speculation,however,remained about whether Srinivasan would attend the sub-committee meeting. Dalmiya said that it would be decided “in a day or two”. But according to a BCCI insider,Srinivasan is almost certain to be there. “He is an executive member of the committee and can go there on individual capacity,” said the source.
