And for the record, the ICC doesn't have the money to do this, without impacting the money that goes to development of cricket in countries. If you don't think the ICC should spend money on development, that's fine but the ICC mandate as it stands means they can't really afford it without expanding ICC sponsored events (which the BCCI would also oppose since it means they wouldn't be the ones making the money).
That shouldn't be considered an actual Test, so you are completely right.
for all the people who are after BCCI i would like to birng 2 points here..BCCI was defeated on two motions 1-10 and 1-9 in the past.the first one was whether there should be a world T20 championship or not and BCCi lost it as they opposed T20 at that time as it was some thing popularized y ECB at that time.
the second one was last year where it was defeated by 1-9 votes on a motion which said that if the home board wanted to use the UDRS they can.so with this ruling it was only the Home board which had to decide whether the UDRS should be used or not.But BCCI negotiated with SL,SA and WI boards to not use the technology using their power.
So as per the current rule if ECB want to use the UDRS they are well with in their rights to use it and does not have to get permission from BCCI.and i dont understand why they don't use the same now when they are free to use it with out approval from BCCI
Edit :i got this info from my news paper yesterday and may be GIMH or any one can confirm it with ECB in mean time i will try to get a link to same
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
All the replies from the ECB and the replies to the emails sent have been to the effect of "both sides have to agree" IIRC.
+ time's fickle card game ~ with you and i +
get ready for a broken ****in' arm
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

as per the above link
if BCCI is the host they can decide to not use it
if ECB is the host they have to consult BCCI on using it ...
so its a matter of mutal consent only if the home board feels it need to use the UDRS
any way i think BCCI is going to be deafetd on UDRS by 7-3 this week and i hope that is enough for the UDRS to come into effect..but the Ind-Eng test series still wont feature UDRS..as per reports this will be implemented in series starting from August on wards only
Who are the 2 people voting with India? Sri Lanka and Pakistan iirc want it, and I'd imagine South Africa, West Indies, Australia, New Zealand and England want it? Are Zimbabwe and Bangladesh sucking up to the BCCI?
and all others in another ship
Pakistan and SL though are agreeing on DRS could jump the ship if the SLPL and the President issues are solved.as for SA and WI they have always gone both side a lot of times so could see some twist
even if its 5-5 i think it wont come through

So Zimbabwe (who don't presently play Tests) have a vote on it?
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Just use the UDRS except the Hawkeye and Hotspot for the time being if all the objections are in relation to that?
Every single broadcaster has slow motion ,so no extra cost and the third umpire has to make calls in any case. Atleast that will eliminate the obvious howlers /Clear mistakes.

Shekhar Luthra of NewsX is reporting that BCCI has relented on DRS, decision may be announced Tuesday...
