New Delhi (PTI): India will continue to oppose the uniform implementation of Decision Review System (DRS) at the Annual Conference of the ICC in London, according to newly appointed BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel. "There is no question of agreeing upon the uniform implementation of the DRS. India's stand has been very clear from the onset and we are against the use of DRS in Test series. There will be no change in our stand at the ICC Annual Conference in London," Patel, who will be attending the CEO's meet during the Annual Conference, told PTI on Friday. Patel also said that technically BCCI is not in a position to change its point of view on the DRS issue. "It was an unanimous decision taken by the Working Committee that BCCI will be opposing DRS as we don't find it foolproof. If we have to change our stand then it needs to be ratified by the Working Committee which hasn't been done in this case. So the question of agreeing with DRS doesn't arise as it doesn't have the approval of the working committee," Patel explained. Yet to decide on representative Kolkata: The Indian cricket board will formally decide "in a day or two" its representative at the International Cricket Council's annual conference scheduled to start in London June 23. "The matter has not been decided yet. Maybe we will take a decision in another two days," BCCI interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya said. There has been much speculation over India's representative at the meeting, with reports talking of a rift between Dalmiya and BCCI president N. Srinivasan on the issue. Srinivasan stepped aside earlier this month till the pendency of the two-man probe commission into the Indian Premier league betting case allegedly involving his franchise Chennai Super Kings and son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan. Dalmiya was then appointed BCCI interim chief. A senior board member also said that Dalmiya "was most likely" to be India's representative at the meeting.
