Sachin could convince BCCI about Hawkeye in DRS
Hawk-Eye inventor Paul Hawkins met Tendulkar before the start of India`s ongoing Test series against England and claims to have removed all doubt from the batting maestro`s mind about the system.
"The problem has been that the BCCI have made decisions without knowing the facts. It was clear Tendulkar had been told the Hawk-Eye system was manual, requiring an operator. He wasn`t aware it is automatic and beyond corruption by humans," Hawkins was quoted as saying by `The Daily Mail`.
"Once we had set the record straight with him, he left saying he would tell the BCCI and recommend Hawk-Eye was used. I don`t think it will take too much time for the BCCI to act on advice from Tendulkar," he added.
The DRS is being used in the ongoing India-England series but without the Hawkeye technology for the lbws, as was demanded by the BCCI.
Tendulkar, in the past, had made it clear that he was not against DRS."I`m not against DRS, but I feel it will be more effective with the support of the Snickometer and Hot Spot technology," he had stated.
