  'Definitely' want to think about DRS - Kohli
Posted by: nairrk - Today 02:11 PM - No Replies

Virat Kohli: '[After opposing the use of DRS] for us to then say that the umpires made an error and it is going against us, it is not logical'

India's Test captain, Virat Kohli, has given a strong indication that India will start using the Decision Review System (DRS) in the future. "We will certainly look to probably introduce it [DRS] in future," Kohli said on the eve of the Kolkata Test against New Zealand.

India have been the biggest opponents of DRS for a while now, but Kohli said that there have been discussions and meetings about it, and DRS is something they "definitely want to think about". This is a big departure from the previous captain's views and BCCI president Anurag Thakur's ambivalent musings. MS Dhoni always opposed DRS because it was not 100%, and Thakur recently wondered, if the machine is going to make the same error as humans, "what are we getting out of it"?

Kohli still had reservations about the system, but he seemed convinced about the merits of having a review system. It is noteworthy that under Kohli's captaincy India have been at the receiving end of calls that could have been reversed easily under DRS in two Tests where the said decisions made a big difference. India ended up losing those two Tests - Adelaide in 2014-15 and Galle in 2015. In the Adelaide chase, where India came close to beating Australia, Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane were sent back when DRS would have recalled them. In Galle, Sri Lanka mounted an incredible comeback in the second innings, but both their heroes, Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne, would have been out in single figures had DRS been there.

"Those are the things I can't say yes or no to sitting here," Kohli said about DRS. "But these are the things we have discussed. These are things we have had meetings on. Because there were some areas that we felt can be debated. Especially the ball-tracking and HawkEye. But, all in all, obviously when you feel that - I personally feel these things can be discussed and debated on.

"We wouldn't take [wrong umpiring] decisions too hard because we, in the first place, decided we would not use DRS. For us to then say that the umpires made an error and it is going against us, it is not logical. There is no room for excuses. Once DRS is in place, once DRS is up and running for us as well, then you can sit and think what are the grey areas. As I said these things have been spoken about. We want to definitely think about it. but I can't make a decision sitting here right now. It's something we have had discussions on."

As it stands now, no other team in the world opposes DRS even if there isn't enough technology available with the host broadcasters. Every Test not featuring India has DRS, except Zimbabwe's recent Tests, when they couldn't afford it. In ICC 50-over tournaments, India are forced to use DRS, but that uniformity does not extend to Test matches because they are seen as bilateral arrangements.

  Indian women's kabaddi team wins gold for a record 5th time in Asian Beach Games

Danang (Vietnam): India bagged their first gold medal at the 5th Asian Beach Games with the women's beach kabaddi team winning the title for the record fifth time in succession here.

Indian beat Thailand 41-31 in a hard-fought summit clash at Bien Dong Park. The Indian women's kabaddi team had been winning the gold since the inception of the biennial Games in 2008.

For Thailand, it was the fifth time in a row they had lost to India in a final, although there was some consolation in that the 10-point margin was the closest they had got to the all-conquering Indians in the four previous gold medal matches.

The Indian men's beach kabaddi team, however, lost to arch-rivals Pakistan 28-30 in a nerve-wrecking final to settle for a silver. India had won gold in men's beach kabaddi the 2008 and 2010 editions. (READ: Amidst growing tension, Punjab invite Pakistan to participate in 6th World Kabaddi Cup)

Silver medallists in the event at each of the previous four Asian Beach Games, Pakistan finally made it to the top of the podium.

In women's 70kg category kurash (a form of wrestling originated in Uzbekistan), Amisha Tokas won a silver after losing to Nguyen Thi Lan of Vietnam in the final.

In beach bodybuilding, Manoj Kumar Majumdar won a bronze in upto 158cm category.

India has so far won six medals (1 gold, 3 silver, 2 bronze) in the Games. India are now at 15th spot in the medal table headed by hosts Vietnam (25 gold, 22 silver, 27 bronze).
