    Yeah. The cameras (being military equipment) and software for Hawkeye/etc. are all licensed, not bought.

    Hmm... but will there be a licensing fee reduction then? I mean one tariff for Bangladesh and the like and another for developed nations?

    60K (in fact even half of it) is way too exorbitant imho for a day of cricket if one juxtaposes it with the apparent benefit it offers (avg increases success rate from 92% to 97%)...

    But then again, if BCCI does not want to bear the cost of it, it is free to do in home matches. But it has no bloody reason to tell off the countries who want it and actually are willing to pay for it.

    It's quite rare so see such flagrant bull**** trotted out, so I almost admire the BCCI's brass neck. They really don't care what anyone else thinks, do they?

    The fact that English tests have all the components for UDRS already in place which presumably will be shown on Sky's coverage of the same utterly punctures the whole "it's too expensive for der little 'uns, guv" arguments.

    So the BCCI are opposing the UDRS in England because they don't want the ECB to spend money even if the ECB itself is willing? That financial powerhouse of Pakistan, and the filthy rich SLC also want to spend the money but obviously we are overlooking the selfless people of the BCCI who run the game on a shoe string budget out of purely the love of the game. Can we reasonably expect BCCI to be able to scrounge up money to match heavy hitters like Sri Lanka? Too often the little guys are forgotten in cricket. First the associates were left out of the world cup and now the BCCI is being driven to bankruptcy by the shortsighted bigwigs cricket. The other boards are too busy counting money in their palaces in Colombo or Wellington to bother about the little guys trying to make cricket work in India.

    sarcasm aside, BCCI have every right to oppose implementing this out of their pocket for their home tests.

    But no ****ing right to decide on behalf of other boards.

    Really? Given India earns nearly 3/4 of the total revenues in cricket I don't think I'd go so far as to say they have a right to oppose it.

    They saving up to be Scottish or something?

    That they have earned it and continues to earn well is no excuse for squandering it. They earned all this much through exercising financial prudence as well.

    Yes, if that's the cost per day for implementation, I'd call it's implementation "squandering" if one takes into account cost benefit analysis.

    Although the key issue being the correctness of those figures quoted.

    When have I ever defended India's stance on the UDRS? I don't know about Cevno's views but I have always supported the UDRS. With the slow motion I don't see what excuse the BCCI can use to argue against it and it's a fairly good improvement for the time being until the BCCI remove their heads out of their arses.

    I'd say they certainly have the right to not use UDRS for the home series but that doesn't change them being insincere and stubborn ****s in that scenario.

    Pretty sure Cevno is for the UDRS too.

    My point was that if other nations whose income (by definition) is a small fraction of India's can afford to implement UDRS, India pleading poverty is way beyond prudence and into parsimony.
